given enough caffeine




Happy Sunday morning my crafty friends.  Seriously, I love your online peeps, even the lurkers who I never hear from :)  My friend ~amy~ sent me a challenge to play along with the Addicted to CAS challenge "coffee" because we are both coffee addicts who have an unhealthy amount of crafting coffee goodies. Since she played along with the Mojo Monday Challenge today I decided to combine the two.  I went for the CAS option and eliminated options from the sketch (let me tell you literal girl over here struggles with that).   But I've used the Verve "Better with You" sentiment, which is fabulous, the PTI coffee cup and tag die, Zing aqua embossing powder (I should break that out more often) and Stampendous white embossing powder and an assortment of my favorite May Arts ribbon (burlap string, chevron twill and corduroy velvet) on top of a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper with a Studio Calico wood arrow.  And since I did a lot of crafting this last week for the PTI challenges and I'm not known for being neat in the best of situations, I thought I'd keep it real and show you what my work space looks like right now.  I'm out the door to work, so I'm going to leave it like this... and yes, I do craft on the floor (which is a tad neater, but not much).
