Some Java with a Twist

When I saw the MFPSpeedyTV Sketch with a Twist Challenge this week, I wanted to play. I help Shirley, Kathy, and Chris with the Inspiration Challenge on MFPSpeedyTV, but I have been trying to play in some of the other challenges too so I can visit with other MFP DT members. There are so many fun challenges on MPFSpeedyTV - I am going to try them all.

This is the sketch:


And the twist is to use black, pink and white colors (the Tim Holtz tea distress ink lends a bit of brown tone to some of my black papers but I promise they are black). Here is my card:


I used the MFP Oh Beans set for the cups and the MFP Ivy and Blossoms set for my sentiment. My papers are SU! and Recollections, my inks are Memento Black and Tim tea, and my bling is from Zva. I showed this one to my Mom (a coffee addict like me), and she wanted to send it to a friend so off it went.

Fun challenge girls - I promise to come play again soon.

Hugz!

  7. Wow, Nancie! LOTS of fussy cutting! How amazing - I really admire your ability to get in those tiny little cup handles! Love all the design elements in your background, and I can almost smell your java just from the colors! Nancie, So sorry I have not been able to visit your blog regularly this month - the bingo game is taking all my time and energy - and will until it is completed. hugs, de
