Mojo Monday #263 Coffee Lover Card

I think this is my last post of the day. I decided to create a different card...meaning that I made a card that wasn't a holiday card. LOL

I was inspired by this week's sketch at Mojo Monday.

Paper: Grandma's Attic Collectibles (TPC Studio), Cocoa CS, Colonial White CS (CTMH); Stamps: Enjoy Life (CTMH); Clearly Sentimental About Coffee (MFT); Inks: Twilight, Cocoa (CTMH); Tools: Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper-Piercer, Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (CTMH), Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug); Other: Brown Sparkles (CTMH), Chocolate Ribbon (American Crafts)

Today's card was inspired by the patterned paper. It made me think of newspaper. When I was a little girl, my dad used to read his morning paper with a cup of coffee (and a cigarette). He would always keep one eye on the clock to be sure he wasn't late for work. After he would leave, my brother and I would pretend to be daddy, by either "smoking" the cigarette stub or drinking the coffee dregs at the bottom of his cup. I can tell you that this experience cured my brother and I of ever wanting to drink coffee or smoke. LOL But the memory always makes me smile.
