It's All About the Coffee!

My friend, Tanja is hosting a coffee and tea card swap over on SCS. I have done a couple coffee and tea related swaps before and wanted to come up with something completely different than what I had done in the past. My sister gave me this Pike's Place Market stamp for my birthday last it got me thinking. What do a lot of people associate with Seattle and where do I go every morning before work??? Starbucks!!! Of course! And it just so happens that the very first Starbucks is at Pike's Place in Seattle. And there you have the entirety of my "aha" moment and the result was this card.
My friend, Kelly mentioned the other day that she might be starting a new swap called "Where I'm From" or "Where I Live"---Well, this card is Totally where Ms. Kadie is from. Why don't you come visit and we'll go for coffee or tea!

Stamps: Impress Public Market stamp, Impress Seattle stamp, SU! Like It Alatte
Paper: AC textured CS Earth Tones, Choc Chip, PP
Ink: SU! Markers, Black Stazon, Emboss Powder, Cotton Grey Copic
Embies: SU! Choc. Chip Ribbon, Scalloped & Classic Rectangle Nesties, Classic Circle Nesties

This makes me smile! I love the criss cross ribbon and what a great stamp!! How many people get to say they have a stamp that is of something in their town?!

IT IS all about the coffee! TOTALLY! When the Pikes Place roast came out a little over a year ago I was insane...they were giving out free ones for like a month every wednesday and I was highly caffeinated, let me tell you!

I love coffee too! Your card is TOO cute! Love it and SO wish we could meet for coffee, too!!!
