I Love Coffee!

 This week the ladies on the Stampendous Design Team are showcasing the wonderful new Curio Stamps. Be sure to check out Stampendous' Blog to see my teammates' stunning projects. I know that you'll be inspired!

Here's my second card for Curio Stamps week. This time I'm showing what I've done with the wonderful Curio Coffee Friend.

In addition to my love and adoration of cats, I also love coffee, so the Curio Coffee Friend stamp had to join my collection of coffee stamps. I'm not sure if you can read what it says on the coffee cup, so here goes. "Happiness is a good cup of coffee shared with a friend". Very true, but I guess I'm my own best friend since I have to have several cups before I'm ready for company!
