Birthdays, Coffee, and Chocolate!

Stamps:  High Hopes 'Sleepy Bear', Stampendous sentiment.  Cardstock:  Lovely Lilac, Papertrey white, Paper Studio DP.  Ink:  Memento black, Copics, Lovely Lilac.  Accessories:  Rectangle Nestabilties, ribbon, gem brad.

Ever had one of those mornings when one cup of coffee just isn't enough?  That's me on a regular basis which is why I love this Stampendous sentiment.  And when my Splitcoast buddy, Momma Patti, sent me this fun High Hopes stamp, I knew they would be the perfect pair!

Not only did Patti send me this stamp, but she also included lots of other goodies including spools of ribbon and gemstone brads.  Thanks again, friend!

How did I respond?  Not very quickly.  As you can tell by the decorated candy bar below, I ended up being belated in my birthday wishes:

I'm starting to think I need to toss all my birthday sentiments and invest in a few more 'belated birthday' stamps like this one from Papertrey!

All is forgiven with chocolate, though, right?  And it goes perfectly with Opus Gluei challenge #78:  Trick or Treat.  Be sure to stop by this always smile-inducing blog because the current challenge also involves a treat for one lucky participant!


  1. Oh my gosh, I did laugh out loud when I saw this. Felt like this? I've been there before lots of times, sometimes I think I should just stick my face under the coffee maker and keep it on continuous flow.

    Now, about your project again. This is so adorable, I love it. Love the coloring, the image, all of it. So fun!

    Thank you for participating in our Opus Gluei theme, love to see your projects!
