Coffee and Friends – Make the Perfect Blend

Oh, how true is that! There is nothing more enjoyable than sitting down to coffee with a good friend. With that in mind, Heidi created such a lovely card today, adding in the element of Christmas, too! She cleverly used Graphic 45’s Christmas collection for this year. Take a look:

Lovely, YES!

Heidi stamped her coffee pot and cups onto the designer paper and then cut them out. Thus those lovely prints. Totally fun!!! Then she accented just a bit with her Copic markers and added a bit of glitter with her Wink of Stella Clear Marker.

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.
