Fancy Coffee?

 Hello Friends & Followers,
Sandy here; I hope you've enjoyed and found some inspiration in the cards the Fussy & Fancy LLC Girls have presented here on the blog this week! :-)

Today's my turn and I have something a little bit different for you.
A couple of weeks ago DT Member Elin and I were exchanging some crafting ideas, and Elin mentioned coffee filter that's what I've tried out today for the first time:
You might have seen my card from last Saturday; then I used a new image by Hannah Lynn, and also for this card I've used one of her new images, "Annabelle". I adore Hannah's images, they're so beautiful!!!

As soon as I had decided to go with the coffe filter card idea, I didn't have to think twice about which papers to use; of course it had to be some from Maja Design's "Shall we have Coffee" collection!

When I'm running with an idea, I tend to sometimes get a bit obsessed with it, hence the "latte brown" Maya Road jute twine, the cup charm, and the sentiment... :-)

I googled for coffee and friendship quotes and came across;
"Good Coffee is like friendship: rich, warm and strong"
I hope the Pan American Coffee Bureau won't mind that I changed the order of coffee and friendship, LOL. Despite all the coffee correlations, this card is about friendship, not coffee!!! :-)

It's somewhat difficult to be fussy & fancy in a much smaller space than a normal sized 6x6 card, so please forgive me if there's less fuzziness than usually. I hope the fanciness makes up for it; the card shape, the die cuts, obviously her elegant dress and the many die cut out letters (it did take me ages to glue those on!)

Thanks for stopping by.
