Coffee. Lots and Lots of Coffee.

Well, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day.  We went to my sister's and enjoyed the day laughing, eating and trying to make the rolls stay in the bowl as we flipped it around like the loops in a roller coaster.  Needless to say, we weren't very good at it and the rolls went everywhere.  We have officially named them forevermore...Inertia Rolls and I'm sure trying to do the same thing will be a tradition from now on.  LOL!  Then Friday, we went to Eric's parents and had her amazing stuffing, crafted, and played an epic game of Monopoly.  Shelbie ended up winning for the first time in her life!

So Thursday night, we dragged all of our Christmas bins out from under the stairs and started putting up the Christmas trees.  They still aren't done.  Hopefully finishing up today, which is also Lindsie's birthday.  That brings me to my card.  With all the commotion going on, I thought this card fit me perfectly, and I'm going to needs lots and lots of coffee in the coming days.  I used the latest VIVA LA VERVE sketch (and I used it again on something else coming your way soon!) and it came together so fast!

The sentiment and coffee cup are from a semi-new set from VERVE called COFFEE. I am in love with the COFFEE WORD DIE and this was the first time I had ever used it! I can just see it in a cute home decor project for my kitchen!

Anyway, I'm off to take Lindsie to do a little birthday shopping.  The walls in her room are still bare and she wants to see about some decor at Home Goods in Southlake today.  THEN, I guess we can finish decorating these trees!  We have 4 to do.  It's the first year we've ever had more than one!  I knew I saved all those hand-me-down Christmas trees for a reason!  The only thing is, is that I don't have a bunch of hand-me-down ornaments--they are all going to be sparsely populated in the trinket department!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Because the Coffee Word diecut is so fragile and intricate, I ran it through my Xyron X sticker maker thingy to add adhesive to the back of it in one easy step.  This would be the perfect thing to give Ken Oliver's Stick It stuff a good try.  It's on my list to Santa.
