'Bean' Thinking of You - Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #80

Hello.  Happy Friday!

It's a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This is my first card as a new member of the Design Team--woo-hoo... 

The theme for this Challenge 80, chosen by our team leader Sheryl, is Coffee, Cocoa or Tea.  Sheryl would like to see beverage related projects i.e. pots of tea, cups of coffee, people holding a cup...and not just using the colours on your projects.

I hope you will play along with us in our challenge.  Check out the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog to get more details on how to join us and to be inspired by the fabulous cards of my DT teammates.

Our challenge is being sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs. I am using one of their digi images, a latte cup called Latte Love.

Sitting on the cup is one of my favorite Tilda images--I have lots of faves..LOL. She is called Pie Tilda and she is from a Magnolia's stamp collections from last year, Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012.
Magnolia stamps are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.  If you don't see the one you are looking for in the store--like this one is currently out of stock--contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
I did this card while I was waiting for stamps from Magnolia's newest collection to arrive in the mail.  They have arrived now..woo-hoo!  Check out the adorable images at Magnolia-licious-- the images have been coloured by the Magnolia-licious DT gals so you can see what they can look like.  Have a look there also at the selection of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts.  Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase!

I've also decorated the inside of my card...

Here's another...ahem...favorite image of mine.  This is Autumn Tilda With Pencils from Magnolia's Turning Leaves Collection 2012.
