Sip it!

The Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast- was Rebekah.  She had a card I had to case!  It is not the same image....

 My mother bought this image when we on a road trip to Wisconsin.  The image is Whipper Snapper, and the sentiment is MFT. She thought these two reminded her of the early days ot their dating and marriage, when dad would wear a bow tie : )

 I colored the image with Copics. I used purple, as it was her favorite color.  The cardstock and DP are from the Netherlands. The sequins are from Unity.

 My Mom would make coffee, and sip it all day long.  It would get cold and we would have to put the cup in the microwave on/off all day long.

Crazy 4 Challenges- include a drink

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful card to remember your Mother with Shelly - Love your colours and that image certainly is a sweetie. What a sweet memory about your Father wearing a bow tie, and also the reheated coffee :) - microwaves are wonderful for reheating drinks!

This is gorgeous Shelly, beautiful design and papers and that stamp is just adorable. I smiled about the all day coffee - my Mum was exactly the same with her tea!

Great work Shelly, our mums are so very special aren’t they? It’s nice to have that memory with her, my um never crafted like that, or really other than sewing and reading and golf had few hobbies, not like me! She was very good at what she did though.
Thanks for popping over and am so glad back surgery helped you lots. That’s a great blessing.
Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too.
Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x

That's exactly how Jim would drink coffee too! We'd make one cup and it'd last all day long.
Love that sweet image - just so cute - and your card is perfect!

Adorable card Shelly. I think that is someone of the "generation" since my Grandmother would also reheat her coffee.

Your image is adorable and I love the story behind it Shelly! What a very sweet design with the sentiment too! :)
