Coffee and friends

................... a perfect blend.

A couple of months ago, totally out of the blue, I received an email from Stamping Bella saying that I had a gift voucher waiting for me. After initial disbelief it turned out to be true, a lovely act of kindness from a dear friend who knows I love Stamping Bella. I was a greedy little pig and, in all the excitement, spent it on stamps in double quick time! They have been patiently waiting here to be used, while I kept them close by just in case they disappeared like a magician's rabbit - and this is the first outing for one:
 I used:

- 7" x 5" white card stock

- stamp by Stamping Bella called 'Uptown Girls - Clarissa and Camille Share a Cafe', stamped in Memento 'London Fog' and coloured with Pro Markers

- background papers are all from Bubbles 'Born to Shop' pad, love the way the reverse of these papers are plain in matching colours

- sentiment came with the stamp set, stamped using Memento 'London Fog' then die cut with one half of a Nestie die and mounted onto plain paper, cut to size after drawing round the same die

I had such fun colouring this brilliant image, and the sentiment is so true. Thank you again, my dear kind friend - mwah!
