Thanks a Latte

Friends are wonderful things to have!  Since hubby and I started moving all across the country with this Army adventure of ours, we have said goodbye to more than just friends.  We said goodbye to hubby's white coffee supplier.  (No, it's not coffee with lots of cream, it's flash roasted coffee beans the color of sand.)  He loves the stuff.  Has one every morning.  Sometimes has one at night, too. Can't live without it.

And we're almost out.

Enter wonderful friend.  She went to the store (which is forty miles away) to pick up two more 4lb. bags and is mailing them to us.  I promised her a reimbursement check in a cute card.

I used two challenges for this card:
  1. Mojo Monday Sketch 316
  2. Less is More: String or Twine.
Please notice that knot.  I followed the tutorial on the Less is More blog and managed to make it work.  Quite proud of myself. 

Quite proud of taking a Mojo Monday sketch and giving it a CAS feel so I could submit to Less is More.

Here's the supply list:
  • Stamps: Verve Better with You, CTMH Circle Around
  • Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, CTMH Cashmere and Twilight
  • Copics: E55, E53, E50, C00, B0000, and 0 (Colorless)
  • Pearls: CTMH Mocha
  • Paper: CTMH Wonderland

Quite proud of having a friend who loves me enough to send coffee so I don't have to put up with pouting from a caffeine deprived spouse!

Until next time,


  1. Brilliant card Becca and your knot looks great
