Coffee and a Spirograph

Hello,
Today is day 3 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  When I was a child I use to sit for hours and play with my Spirograph set.  I loved all the fun possibilities.   Today,  I have the cutest Spirograph set and wanted to use it to make a fun background for a coffee card.  Here is a pic.


I used a base of grey and mint green cardstock, and mounted my spirograph background onto that.  I then colored in the middle of the Spirographs and added some fun elements to the middle of them.   The coffee cup is from the Sweet Stamp Shop's "Coffee Town" set, and I just can't seem to remember which stamp set the sentiment is from (sorry).  I stamped those off in green and added them to the card.

That's it for me today, so glad you stopped by and hope you have a fun time hopping.

  6. I often buy themes on stamps of toys I wished for when I was little. Probably why I have 10 different kinds of watercolours. Good job!
