Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge 67 - C is for Caffeine

It's time for the new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers  and today Edna is buzzing, because the topic she has chosen for us is C is for Caffeine.


Being more of a tea drinker myself, I don't have much in the way of coffee related stash, in fact until the recent craft day in Frimley I had none at all, but luckily the goody bag we were given on the day included a coffee-bean stencil. I stamped the words using individual letters from the stamps I am "looking after" for my daughter, scribbled round them with a coffee coloured pencil and cut them out.


If you are in the UK, the colour scheme is probably self explanatory, but for those who live elsewhere here's why I chose it. There is a chain of coffee shops called Costa which has a branch on practically every high street, and their crimson cardboard cups are an important part of many people's day. So this card is a tribute to all of my friends whose journeys are planned around where they can find the next branch of Costa.

  6. Costa sounds like the Canadian equivalent of Tim Hortons! The colours are even similar. For a lack of coffee supplies, you did an awesome job with this card, so fun! (Tea drinkers unite!)
