Lady Belle loves Coffee...

...and so do I!! Best part of the day, get up, muck out/ride, then back to the house for a mug of proper coffee...decaff these days though as the leaded stuff gives me headaches...old age!!
Anyway, I don't look half as glamorous as Lady Bell here!!


In keeping with the coffee theme I used Nitwits Collections Coffee Talk papers, I love this colour combination and don't use it nearly enough. Promarkers were used to colour the lovely image and I sponged the edge of the oval with Tumbled Glass and Frayed Burlap for a bit of interest. I flowersofted her negligee to suggest fur/feather!! The perfectly matched ribbon came from The Works and the pearls from my stash.

Must just mention that the latest challenge started at Sasayaki Glitter yesterday, it's "Shaped Cards", you can use any image and the prize for the winner is THREE digis of your choice from Naz's fantastic collection. Added to that the Top 3 each get to choose one...how about that?!!

Great papers and colour combo, one of my favourites too. I love how you've coloured the image and her fur edged negligee, imagine floating around the kitchen like this in the morning.
