cup of love

 Hi folks! It's National Coffee Day and I am participating in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop and this is my second entry. Click here if you'd like to see my card.


I've been working on getting my craft room organized and decorated and decided to make some art for it. So I painted this little 6x6 canvas. I love it and can't wait to get it hung on the wall.

 It's a little hazy here in the Pacific Northwest today so I'm not sure how much of the true colors are coming through on this photo. 

The word COFFEE is stamped using Simon Says Stamp's Sketched Alphabet stamp set. Due to the texture of the canvas the sketchiness didn't show well, so I filled it in with a paintbrush.


And since it is National Coffee Day I am sharing my morning mug of Pumpkin Spice. I was feeling a little Halloween spirit today! I wait all year to use this The Nightmare Before Christmas mug that I've had for years. It's nice and tall and holds a LOT of coffee :)  And yes, my desk is always that messy. Sometimes even worse. Hey - I just noticed that you are getting a 2-for-1 today on mugs. I use that old cracked tree mug in the background to hold water when I paint.

(I'm taking it as a sign that today will be a great day since my manicure soooo matches my mug!)

Thanks for stopping by today. Feel free to come enter the blog hop for your chance to win one of the many many prizes up for grabs!
