Don't you just love this sentiment, and the font?

I stamped the images onto Papertrey Ink white cardstock,

Friends of Unity, August 2018

Hey there!! What's brewin' ??
Welcome to Robyn's nest

I cannot believe it is August already!! 
This months theme for our Friends of Unity Hop is coffee !!
Well, how bout that!!!! LOL.. 
My favorite thing!!
 I am having one of 2 giveaways this month
~ I have a few Unity stamps in mind, so be sure to comment to win!!
 I will read all the blogs, then use random to pick my winner

ok.. let's get started 
I used the coffee cup image from Unity's Kit of the Month for June!! 
This has to be one of my favorite KOM's yet!!
I love coffee, and feathers!! 

For my card, I stamped the image on PTI's white cardstock
I used chalks to tone that white down some
Colored it with Copics.. I really wanted to give her a french manicure, LOL
Used My Favorite Things edge dies, and my most favorite piece of K&Company's pattern paper. This is my last sheet of this gorgeous paper, and I will miss it terribly!!
I added some jute type twine, and pretty little flowers along that "naked" side
I didn't add a sentiment yet, because I'm not sure who it will go to.. it could be any type card at this point..
Then lastly, some clear Nuvo drops...

On a side note, that little basket handle you see in my picture is actually a coffee cup basket made by my good friend, Lisa Bradford! She has this amazing talent for basket making, and I was lucky enough to be surprised by getting one in the mail!! It was filled with so many crafty goodies too!! 
Thank you my friend :)

I used Hug in a Mug~ stamp/die set along with their
This pattern paper is just gorgeous! So many little delicious details! 

 I used the dies to cut out the cup,
 then I stamped and heat embossed the coffee sleeve, and lid to add texture 
Next, I added these sweet hand made flowers which I received as a 
RAK (Random Act of Kindness) 
from my friend Marilynn DeGroot!!! 
This sentiment says
Coffee is a Hug in a Mug
See that tiny coffee cup? It is also a part of the set!! 

Next I decided to make a bible bookmark for my friend
I made a large tag with the dark brown cardstock, added the dark green on top
I used some scalloped dies and cut a pretty piece from the same Latte Love paper pack
Then using the Hug in a Mug dies, I cut the cup, and sleeve 
For the "steam" I fussy cut this swirl from the paper

Love this sentiment!!!
I stamped and heat embossed it. Then added the tiny flower and some Nuvo drops
That's it for me!!
