Celebrating Those Who Love Us-Crafty Gals Challenge

It is the 5th of the month, so I am back with the newest Challenge of the Crafty Gals!  We are a group of bloggers who have monthly challenges, caring comments & fun chit chat on SCS—our favorite stamping site to visit.

This month, the challenge was posted by Tracie.  Here are the details:

"Celebrating Those Who Love Us"
This month's theme celebrates those who have sacrificed so much to help us become the people we are today. This could be mothers, fathers, friends, Jesus, or anyone you'd like to celebrate! On your project, include the following:
1.  At least 3 layers
2.  At least 2 embellishments
3.  At least 1 sentiment
I can't wait to see what you come up with and the stories you share with us!

I love coffee—and many forms of it.  We have an espresso machine and make a latte every morning—and I get to enjoy it with my best bud Rebecca!  We sacrifice for each other—I get up everyone morning at 6:00, even though I am retired to have breakfast and share a latte with her.  And what does she sacrifice, well…….......... probably a lot by being with me………….

Image/Sentiment—Gina K Designs--My Cuppa’ Joe and Thanks a Million

Cardstock—Gina K Ivory, Chocolate Brown, Tan Leather and Unknown coffee cup patterned paper

Ink—Palette Burnt Umber

Accessories—Copic Markers; Brown Button & Bakers Twine; Ivory Brads; Coffee Twill

Please check out the blogs of all of the Crafty Gals.   All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar and I hope you will enjoy all of our “Celebrating those who love us” creations. Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!

Getting up at 6:00 am when you don't have to is a sacrifice. Love the layout and the embellishments that you used.
