Mojo Monday Sketch 106
Ahh, my love affair with coffee. This card couldn't have said it better... "You're the mocha latte in a world full of cheap machine coffee."
I'm sorry. Call me a coffee snob, but I just can't take coffeemaker coffee anymore. I simply love my Americano! For those of you who don't know, an Americano is deliciously dark and earthy espresso added to steamy, piping-hot water. A touch of cream finishes it off beautifully. When I gently remove the lid from that Starbucks cup, it's like a vision of loveliness. A slight, steamy froth clings to the surface of that rich, bold brew and the smell of it sends me to a place of otherworldliness. But nothing - - nothing in this world can come close to that first delicious sip. It's beyond words for me... but if I had to pick one word, it would be... p e r f e c t i o n.
On that note, I will get back to my Mojo Monday sketch submission this week. Here's the sketch, and here's my card. I had fun going to my stash of "other" products, but just had to use the Coffee Shop stamp set from CTMH for my main cup image front and center. Alas, this wonderful stamp set was retired last year.
