Coffee Time

Hi...As always thank you for dropping by.. So George has returned from the States and normal teenager grunting has resumed, so all is well.
After suffering from crafter's block (I blame it on the heat) I found some inspiration from one of my favourite staples LOTV.... This was mainly due to fact they had a price promotion on, so in my humble opinion it would've been rude not to indulge... I treated myself to a few stamps and a few paper packs. I thought I showed excruciating restraint in buying so little lol....

So on to my first creation. I have wanted this stamp for ages, as I think it symbolises a lot of friendships that are nurtured over coffee (and maybe cake!!!) Or this that just me?...
As usual I coloured with Promarkers, mat and layered the papers. I then made holes using a pokey tool and sewed the edges using lilac embroidery thread fixed. I then fixed a ribbon onto the centre mat. I then attached the image which I die cut using  Nestabilities and then made and glued on a double bow thanks to a simple YouTube tutorial from Jak Heath....
