Farm Fresh Coffee

Hi crafty friends. It is such a busy time of year and with the move and planning for our trip to Rome, it has not slowed down one bit. I did however make some time to at least get one card in on the Winter Coffee Lover's Blog hop

I made this card for my neighbor and I added a Coffee spin so that I could play along. Our neighbors purchased an old farmhouse about a year ago and we hardly see them now. They spend most of their time and holidays up there.  I thought it would be fun to create a Christmas card using that theme (and Coffee) of course.

The Tow Truck is an Architexture piece from 7gypsies. I decided to make that my focal piece. Let me tell you what I did.

I started out by stamping a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of paper with the Wood background stamp from I Brake for stamps. I then layered it on top of the Coffee Card stock from Canvas Corp Brands. The Tow Truck is a sticker, so I adhered it to the base of my card and then added the tree from the Tim Holtz Home for the Holidays Die set.

The Farmhouse and Open sign are from an Architextures 8x8 paper pad. Then I finished it off with a few more details to include the sticker screws on the Farmhouse sign and the "Fresh Coffee" label.

So come on in for a Fresh Cup of Coffee! We would love to have you.
