Coffee Gal Cup of Cheer with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers,
Hope you had a great weekend!  Ready for a bit of Christmas inspiration??!!  Today, I have a fun card that I made with one of my favorite stamps--Coffee Gal from The Stampsmith.

I stamped Coffee Gal on glossy white CS with black dye ink.  I cut a frame from red paper and gave it a coat of Crackle paint.

The card base is made from rusty red CS ans layered with flocked Christmas DP from Me and My big Ideas.  I added a bright ribbon.

The sentiments are from Mark's Finest/Heinrich stamps.  

I just love Coffee Gal.  I have used this stamp on everything from Christmas to birthday cards.   The current Stampsmith Challenge is currently running.   The theme for this month is Handmade Holiday.  Check it out.  There is a great prize involved too!!

A few Fun Challenges For my Coffee Gal:
Sunny Cards: Holiday Greetings
the Stamping Shack: Let the Holidays begin
365 Cards: hot and cold
Stamp Your Life: anything goes
Love to Create: Winter fun
Victorine Stamps: non traditional Christmas

Well, better get going and get some things done today.  Have a great Monday.  Love ya.
