365 Cards - #75 "Imagine This"

Another day on the challenge blog of 365 Cards and today's challenge is "It's another Imagine This" challenge, and you can either use an image of coffee (cup, beans, etc) or let an image of it inspire your card.  I had a little panic for a bit as I mentally went through my stamps. . . no I definitely did not have any coffee inspired stamps in my stash.  I thought bugger!!!!!  Then I had a light bulb moment and nearly gave myself an upper cut because I had this vintage Hero Arts stamp set called Buon Appetito and there are all kinds of little treasures in there like a bag of groceries, a pizza, a casserole pot, a tossed salad, wineglass and bottle, mixed pasta and tomatoes and those two on my card.  Again I have had them for over 15 years.  I can't say I like the card at all because I don't but it was all I had in my stash.  So here it is.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Supplies:  All supplies were Stampin' Up except the stamp set which was Hero Arts.

Michelle, great card even though you don't like it. Isn't it amazing what you can find when you dig through your stamps. I have two full boxes of wooden stamps that are put away for a future garage sale I have been tempted several times this week to dig through those boxes, but I am being strong.
