Morning Is NOT my Friend!

So, this morning I woke up early and could not go back to sleep.

I decided to go in my craft room and play!

~ Morning is NOT my Friend card ~


This fun and simple card started with a top folding Only Orange (SU!) card base. To that I added some scraps that were cut with Paper Smooches Scalloped Frames – I inlaid the middle back in the frame. I stamped the Coffee Loving girl from the Moka Sunshine set from Taylored Expressions onto watercolor paper. I stamped in black Versafine ink and embossed with clear powder. Of course, I colored her in with my “Ziggy“s, fussy cut her out and put her on my card with foam squares. A speech bubble was added and two of the sentiments from Moka Sunshine were added. One was embossed with white embossing powder. A few random enamel dots and jewels spiced it up!

I tilted my inside rectangle a bit and in the place of the butterflies I put my Coffee Loving girl!

I am hoping my Sunshine colored card with its’ brightly colored Coffee Loving girl is acceptable as an entry!!

As you can see, I tweaked my back rectangle to lean the other way. And my girl is there instead of the rectangle!

Have you joined any of these challenges – they are all very fun – hope to see you in the gallery!!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!

    Morning is definitely not my BFF, although the older I get, the earlier I seem to wake up. Your card is awesome, Taunya. Love the warm colors and cute image.

    This is such a great take on this sketch! I struggle with adding a creative spin to the original layout but your take on this one is brilliant! I love the gingham scalloped frame and all the beautiful, bright colors. The sentiments are funn too! Lovely card!

    Argh, mornings are definitely not my friend, so I never wake up early and craft. I do, however, have sleepless nights that are made more tolerable with crafting! If you make cards this amazing without getting adequate sleep I am SO impressed!! Mine would be a crafty mess!

    Such a fun card. I have to say mornings aren’t my friend either… I’m a huge night owl. In fact I stayed up until 2:30 am last night. 😉
