Coffee and Cream

I do like a cuppa. I generally have decaf as I get through too many mugs a day to have the 'hard' stuff. I treat myself to a cappuccino when I'm out now and then, with chocolate on top of course!

"What's brought on these caffeine related ramblings?" I hear you ask. Well it's cos I've been making this.............
The Simply Sassy image is 'Love A Latte', I just had to buy that one. I've stamped her with Fawn Impress ink and then painted her with the same ink watered down for different shades. I had better confess there is a little bit of brown Whisper pen on there too, where I over watered her top, sshh don't tell anyone! The background papers are all from Prima Reflections and I've used a bit of K&Co for the stripey insert.
I was looking around for some brown or perhaps gold brads when I saw these turquoise spotty ones and just had to use them.
