Time to sit a spell...

and enjoy a cup o' coffee with a good friend.

The card base is kraft card stock; a Bazzill brown card stock is next.  On it was stamped coffee stains (distress ink) and text (Snow Cap Pigment Ink).  Using a coffee filter I stamped the image of a burlap bag of coffee in archival ink then hit it with brown distress stain sprays; crumple; dry.  On watercolor paper I stamped the image in Jet Black Archival Ink and colored it with distress inks.  A Stardust Gelly Roll pen was used to color the word 'cafe'.  All stamps are by Just For Fun.

The coordinating kraft-colored envelope was stamped with coffee beans in Coffee Archival Ink and the words 'coffee break'.  I like to coordinate my cards and envelopes...sort of lets the recipient know what's coming...and is a bit of a treat for the postal service.

Stamp out boring envelopes!
