Love my coffee

As some of you know I am a coffee addict. I love coffee! I have to tell this story. My sister's love to tell this story often. When I was a toddler and pre-schooler (ok mind you back then they didn't know not to give caffeine to children) I would wake up at 3 am and scream for "coffee-nilk". Which is coffee syrup in milk. You know like that Hershey's chocolate syrup, but this is coffee flavored syrup. So they would get up in the middle of the night and get me my coffee "nilk" so I would go back to sleep (yes, sleep!) so that they could go back to sleep. I must add I did have parents! Their bedroom was on the other side of the house and my sister's bedroom was next to mine hence their disturbed sleep and not our parents. (I now see the wisdom of this arrangement...) I, of course, do not remember this but I still love anything coffee. Now why am I talking about this? You guessed it, a card! The challenge yesterday was featured stamper Zindorf and when I went to her gallery and saw this card I loved it! I had to do it! So this is the CASE I did of it.

Excellent!! I love it!

I do not like coffee and neither does Mark. When my Mom would come visit, we would whip out the coffee maker, 'cause she had to have her coffee in the morning. I will drink mocha but it has to have a lot of chocolate in it. I guess it would be like have a little bit of coffee with your hot chocolate.

I like the color combination on the card. This reminds me of our Starbucks adventures this summer in RI, and CT.
