Heartfelt Thanks-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb

Hello and welcome to the April collaboration of Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! In light of our current COVID-19 situation Deb and I, who both work in healthcare, decided we would pay tribute to those on the front lines of this pandemic. I think all essential workers should be praised and honored for the role they have in this current situation but we know that healthcare workers are bearing a lot of responsibility and risk exposure and we wanted to say thanks. To create my card I started by layering some dark grey cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my A2 white card base. Using the Basically Bricks stencil from Wendy Vecchi and some Memento London Fog ink and a Tim Holtz blending tool I stenciled the background and die cut it using a stitched edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I downloaded and printed the Birdie Brown Call The Shots and the Super Hero in Scrubs images from My Favorite Things and colored them using my alcohol markers. I fussy cut the images and adhered them onto my focal panel. I added a bit of grey marker under them to ground them so they didn't look like they were just floating in space. I then printed the sentiment from the Super Hero In Scrubs set and added it to the panel using some more grey cardstock for some additional interest. To finish off my card I added some white gel pen highlights to the images. I think it turned out pretty cute. 
It was pretty warm here this afternoon after my fun so I opted for a white chocolate mocha iced coffee that I made at home using some flavored creamer and my usual Seattle's Best 6th Avenue Bistro dark roast coffee. It was pretty tasty! Now, pop on over to Debra's blog and see what she created in honor our nation's healthcare workers!
