Happy Friday! It’s time for a new Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge! This week our challenge is to create a project using a Coffee, Tea, or Hot Cocoa digital image. You don’t have to use a Sweet ‘n Sassy digital image, but we do enjoy seeing our participants use them (and you get the chance for extra perks if you do – see the Digi Challenge site for more details!). Link your card at the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge site by midnight eastern time Thursday, January 17.

I’ve used the Cocoa’s Latte image for my card.  One of my goals for 2013 is to use up as much of my older crafting supplies as possible, so I figured I’d start on that by using some of my oldest designer paper for this card.  I also thought the dark brown background was kind of representative of coffee.  I’ve had the brown flower-shaped buttons for a while, too.  I decided to paper piece the sleeve around the coffee cup, but the rest of the image is colored with Copic markers.  (The yellow cup matches the yellow cardstock better in real life than in the photo.)  Because I’m not a coffee drinker,  I was a little stumped as to what to use for a sentiment.  So I asked my coffee-loving friend Victoria for suggestions and she came up with this one.  Thanks, V!  It’s perfect for a card to send to Operation Write Home. I just used my computer to generate it and printed it out along with the image. The layout for this card is the sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’m looking forward to seeing what you create for this week’s Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge!
