Coffee Break and a Challenge

LEJ Designs is having a Vintage Challenge! My fave...be sure to enter. The prize is 3 LEJ Designs images!

This card is a reminder to take a little time for yourself. The adorable image is by  LEJ Designs, of which I am  a DT member. Lindsay draws such delicate and unique images, so take a peek at her work, and pick up a digi or two!

I have combined her coffee mill, which is definitely a vintage image, with a couple of stamps from a Crafty Secrets set called, Kitchen Kids. I think all the images work together on this card.

The newsprint is from a trip to Epcot, United Kingdom. We had Fish and Chips there, so I naturally confiscated the paper wrapper from my basket. I have used it twice already!

The ribbon is CTMH, and the spoon is embossed with gold from JoAnn's. the gold eyelets are SU! and the sentiment is from a company no longer in business, which I designed a few sets of stamps for, called,
 H & M Stamps.

I used my scissors to scrap the edges of the cs, which I love to do. As I am scraping, I have to sit back and slow down...it's a good thing.  I used my Prismacolor markers to color the image. 

I am entering this card in some challenges (why not?)
Card Crafter's Circle - Rich Earthy Colors
