mmmmmm coffee...

Hello my crafty friends hope this finds you well, if not  then I hope tomorrow is a better day for you. 

Declan had a day off yesterday and Connor wasn't at Uni so we took Grandma out for coffee (and cake of course!!) which inspired this

When Tiddly Inks had a promotion on a few weeks ago I made the most of it and treated myself to a few more digis, Thanks a Latte being one of them. The paper was in my scrap box and is by Nitwits and I coloured the image, as usual to match, using Pro/Flexmarkers and a smidgen of pencil for the hair. The sentiment came from a coffee inspired stamp set.

Surprise hasn't featured much lately so here she is sharing centre stage with my daffs which have been long awaited and, as you can see, the sun is out in Dorset today.

 We added more bulbs last year as this is our Darling Mog's resting place and we wanted a pretty show of colour all year round in his memory.

Hope the sun is shining where you are.

I'm off to play here
