A Simple Roasty Card

First - go buy this (Coffee Talk set) HERE for the low price of $5. Then click on THIS to find *the* cutest set of recipe/foodie goodies. You also need to check out her AWESOME NEW SET - it's embossed backgrounds -- DIGI-NESTIES for only $3!!!!!! She also has her first CHRISTMAS SET in the store for $1.50!! You could also just go buy out her whole STORE and be about as happy as can be... (oh, I forgot to mention Lindsay is now featured on a new website - MY GRAFICO - check it out!) And last shopping note - stay tuned on my Thursday Lindsay posts... I'm getting started on my Christmas cards (finally) with a special request design by none other than the talented and amazing Lindsay. You might be able to find this

as a *FREEBIE* if you find the right link in this post to click...

Details on this card... as I have been sorting out my cards into all my totes to get ready for the craft show - I realized I have so few get well and sympathy cards that I wanted to use this set that I've been holding onto forever (sometimes it is hard to remember that they just need printed - and in any size I want!) I blended copics for the coffee cup to try to get as close as I could for the orange and blue on the mug image. Then I used this gorgeous ribbon that I've been itching to get on paper. I wrapped around and tucked it in, then tied the knots and attached them on top on the edges of the sentiment (also handily included in the set). I think sometimes it makes the card less bulky and the ribbon flatter and uh.. stuck better .. if you don't actually tie the knot around the ribbon (that totally makes sense to me, if you need me to clarify - email me). Pretty simple card... oh, I almost forgot. I trimmed the rectangle around the mug and saucer and wanted to silhouette the steam. I colored in the steam with a grey and a little brown blended in. I also lightly went over the steam with a spica pen... I wish I could figure out the right lighting or camera setting or angle or something so that the glitter would show up in my photos. (If you have some insight on that, please share!!)

Thanks for looking, now head on over to the other designers' blogs for lots more eye candy, and Lindsay's blog, because she is totally creative in the NEATEST ways!!

Finally, enjoy every minute.
