I am definitely a coffee girl! I reached for the wonderful Coffee stamp set for my card today. This actually started off as a full size, really layered card - but as I came to stick everything down I just loved the simplicity of the focal layer. I switched to a 3.75x4 card base and accented with the coffee bean stamp.



Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
