Cozy Cup of Joe

 Hello Everyone!

For today I am entering The Card Concept and The Color Throwdown. This is my first challenge card of the year.. I feel a bit out of practice but I think you can be the judge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Nothing like being with a friend at a nice cozy coffee shop. A warm cup of coffee and a good conversation with a friend is truly what I miss most regarding this pandemic. When all is safe, you bet your boots I'm sending this card out!

In my option wood exudes warm, cozy comfort like no other material. The napkin is a pattern that I stenciled with paste to reflect the pattern from TCC.

The cup is a layered stamp from The Greetery. The sentiment is also from the same set. I asked my kids to read it and they couldn't. Good grief! I know I am showing my age but cursive was a subject in school. I remember spending a lot of time writing cursive. My kids spend a couple of weeks on it and that was it; done. Yikes!!!

I love your card! It has a great cozy feeling! I don't think they even teach cursive in school anymore. Such a shame! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at the Color Throwdown!

Shawna, this card is amazing! Love the stenciled napkin, the woodgrain and especially that coffee cup stamp (I thought it was a photo :-)). Hugs and thanks for sharing with us at The Card Concept- we hope you join us again soon!

You are definitely not out of practice! Wonderful card! My grandson wasn't taught cursive at all and I have to print notes to him (he's 19). My husband says cursive will be a secret language in the future. We are so glad you joined us this month at The Card Concept Challenge and look forward to seeing more of your creative work!
