Happy Monday everyone.... the challenge this week over at TOTALLY STAMPALICIOUS is to use a Coffee Theme (TSMONDAY20) on your card or project. Make sure to pop on over to the TS Blog and see a few cards and projects the DT came up with to inspire you. We would like you to use Totally Stampalicious stamps but if you don't have any you may use what you have. Also if you play along with us this week - one lucky person will win 1 digi set of choice.

The TOTALLY STAMPALICIOUS BLOG HOP was a success and all the winners have been posted over on the TS Blog - head on over there to see if you WON....

I made a gift card holder for today's challenge - My Totally Stampalicious Coffee Brawd is a digi image. I coloured her with Prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol. I stamped the "java" sentiment onto Close to Cocoa Stampin Up card stock, added some tiny dots with marker and also stamped some tiny swirls for Stampin Up Fresh Fillers set onto the CC. Here is a tutorial on the Hero Arts blog on how to make this gift card holder.

Below is the inside of my gift card holder.. I stamped the coffee cup onto Close to Cocoa card stock and cut it out. Attached it to the middle panel. I really like how this turned out. Hope you do to.
The sketch I used for the outside is from "Lord Have Mercy" blog. Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge #64 (MTSC64). It was perfect for my card layout.
