Coffee Cafe



I love coffee themed stamps and dies! I have a collection of them, which is bonkers because I don't actually like coffee. I sometimes have one cup of coffee on Christmas Day, but I haven't even bothered doing that for the last few years. I'm more than happy to stick to the stamped version and I was super inspired by the challenge over at The Male Room which is -


You can choose university colours too, which was great because my school colours were black and white. I decided to go with the colours of my first university, Manchester because I thought blue, purple and gold would be a great combo! The colours on my card are Pacific Point and Perfect Plum with a snippet of gold card. I would never have thought to put these colours together, so it's a particularly clever and inspirational challenge theme I reckon!

I'm also sending my cup of coffee and a hug to Di and Parsnip at Pixie's Snippets Playground. Don't spill it on your fur Parsnip!

  1. Ha, ha! Parsnip is sitting here wearing a huge bib now! Really great card April and a lovely combination of colours as well. I'm a tea person rather than coffee - but can totally understand your liking for coffee themed stamps and dies!

    Hugs
