Cozy Coffee Cafe

Whew!  We made it to the weekend!!  And it's not just any weekend for's the start of a 9 day vacation for me....YES!!!  I have big plans to spend the afternoon in my craft room doing nothing but creating!  I'm sneaking in a little early morning creating too before the rest of my family gets up, although the tiniest human in my family decided he needed to be up at 5:30, so he's keeping me company!
I'm playing along with two of my favorite Friday challenge sites...Fab Friday and The Friday Mashup.   Fab Friday has a fun sketch this week...perfect for the weather mashup over at The Friday Mashup!  The challenge this week is to let our weather inspire us in our creation and to mash it up, we are to add in a metal embellishment.'s what I came up with!
Supplies ~
Paper ~ Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit Card Base and Background Pieces, Whisper White, Regals DSP
Ink ~ Memento, Smoky Slate Blendabilities, Bermuda Bay
Stamp Set ~ Perfect Blend, Good Greetings
Other Supplies ~ Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine, Basic Hodgepodge Clips, Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit Die-Cut Accents, Frosted Sequins
Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack Washi Tape
We've had some super cold temps this past week with a little bit of snow, so that is what inspired my creation for today.  I'm not a fan of the cold, but if it's going to be this cold, I'd be happy if it would just snow like crazy!  That would be the perfect excuse to warm up in my favorite coffee shop with a good friend and catch up.  Sounds amazing, doesn't it?  And do you spy the little bit of metal?  That teeny tiny little  paper clip is so much fun, right?!?!? 
The Friday Mashup still has an open Design Team call going on, so I'm giving it my best shot...wish me luck!
I'm hoping to crank out another crafty creation before the rest of my people wake up and we battle the weekend-before-Thanksgiving-grocery-store madness!
Wishing you all a Happy Saturday and I hope you get some stamping time in too!
Happy Stamping!
