Brown, Cream and Pink

I would just like to say a big thank you to the Funky Hand Team for picking my card to be in the top 5 of the FH May challenge.  I really enjoyed making the shaped bunny card and it has now been re-homed to a 7 year old girl called Melanie.

June's challenge is to make a creation with the colours Pink, Brown and Cream.  I get so much inspiration from the blog challenges, but this one came at the very unreasonable hour of 2 am one morning!!  I was woken by my husband's snoring (again) and could not get back to sleep and thought that snoring was worse than coffee for keep you awake!  Then 'kazam' my idea for this month's challenge arrived and yes kept me awake for the rest of the night...

All the papers for this card are printed from the 'Now That's Funky' cd.  I made the mug by using shapes from Word, printing them onto FH paper and the cutting them out.  I inked up the edges and pieced it all together, highlighting some area's with a black sakura pen.  I cut 2 oval and scrunched the paper and then directly inked these to form the cookies.  I finished off the cookies with brads for the chocolate chips.  I have used a Martha Stewart Doily Punch on the pink backing paper and embossed the brown paper with a sizzix texture plate.

I swirled some cream paper to make the steam coming from the coffee cup.

I have cut the word 'Relax' with the sizzix pigeon toed die and attached them to a strip of card with chocolate coloured brads.

Well this card is making me long for some cookies - which I luckily have stashed away from my hungry hoards (who are in bed).  So I am off to sneak a few before its time to go to bed myself.  TTFN Vx
