SSD05 - Needs coffee and blog candy winner!

This is so me first thing in the morning before I get to my cuppa joe right down to the scraggly hair! lol

I'm back for my last week as the Guest Sketch Artist for Skipping Stones Design and I chose to use the Coffee Volume 1 set particularly for the snarky comment - heheheh! So are you all ready to see the sketch? Yah? Right on! Here we go....

Ta Dah! Now I know that you are all thinking that this looks nothing like my card, but it really does, I assure you! All it takes to see this is a little imagination...and maybe some spiked coffee! lol

A couple of nights ago I was tossing and turning in bed trying so hard to fall asleep when this kitchenette epiphany came to me - I actually thought about jumping out of bed at 4 am and starting this card and then my sanity kicked me ;)

So come and sit down with me and let's visualize this together. Let's just say that the tower o' cabinet is the two paper pieces on the left of the sketch. Then lets say that then lower cabinets are the bottom layer on the sketch. Now what if I were to tell you that the bed head is my oval? Yeah, your seeing it now aren't you (nod your head vigorously with me). Bet your kind of wondering about that picture frame...well I couldn't leave poor bed head by herself - that girl had some s'plaining to do! I thing the frame sums it up nicely don't you? Oh, and those tiny circles that are on the sketch...let's just pretend that bed head's hair accidentally covered them up, 'kay? ;P

Now that I have explained so eloquently and made you understand that I didn't actually deviate from my very own sketch, we can move on to the good stuff! How about picking a winner from last week's blog candy?

Congratulations Shelly Schmidt!!! She left me this sweet comment: Blogger

I love this card and adore the saying. That is so true of me - don't talk to me until I have my cup of coffee. Loved this!

I LOVE this sentiment, as a fellow caffine-aholic I can soooo relate!
My girls each got me an ornament for Christmas, a sparkely diet coke can, and a starbucks coffe cup,,,Hmmm I guess I "need" this set!!
