Another double

.....this time it is for Sketch Saturday # 26

and Daring Cardmakers Good morning everyone, my name is Vanessa, aka Ellepiggo, I've been cardmaking for several years now and I'm delighted to be part of the Daring Cardmakers team. This is my first time at setting the dare and as we're on "firsts" I thought about the first thing that springs to my mind every morning - Coffee!! LOL!
Yes, I'm a bit of a cappuccino/latte macchiato girl, so I want to see lots of cards inspired by coffee!! Coffee colours, cup shaped cards, card inspired by a coffee jar label, using coffee beans on your card, coffee shop logos on your cards etc etc.....

The image is a Papermania stamp which my mum found in a draw, she had forgotten all about it as she bought it in a sale at the beginning of the year! I wanted to keep the image as unspoilt as possible so I just stamped him using a sepia ink pad onto smooth cream card and mounted it onto gold card. The papers are LilyKate and erm..........don't know what the brown is, the 'Card Candy-sleigh bells' are from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis
I hope you like! TFL :)

What busy girlie you’ve been again Jackie……so many cards and a box and crib as well…..how ever do you manage it?

Your Christmas card for the DCM dare is really beautiful. I especially love the unconventional Christmas colour which works so well with the stamp and paper that you’ve used.
