Hello lovely people,

I'm here to showcase some LOTV products today as part of the Design Team and I fancied a little coffee date with Jasmine!

I definitely go 'ahhhhhhhh' when I get served a really really good cup of coffee, preferably a cappuccino.  This actually happened today as, unbelievably, I hadn't had a cappuccino for a few days and it tasted sooooo good.  Plus I had a slice of amazing chocolate orange Jaffa cake with it, which may have helped ;-)

But enough of me so here is Jasmine with her coffee...

I realised after I picked the papers that I had chosen the same colours (pink and grey) as the last time I used this image (here), but in much softer shades, and using my Inktense pencils this time.

It seems that quite a few of you are interested in me sharing my thoughts on colouring with Inktense so I will hopefully have a few posts coming up with that; it's nice to know you are interested!

This was originally going to be a CAS card but I gradually added a few extra bit and pieces until it wasn't CAS any more!  Like the pretty die cut borders and the swirly bits - these are 2 of my favourite dies :-)

Absolutely gorgeous card as always!

I'm that way with a good cup of tea. Unfortunately, finding somewhere that serves a good cup of tea is about as likely as finding someone serving chocolate yak's milk! lol.
Luckily I have a kettle and a pretty adequate supply of really excellent tea at home :-) x

Such a pretty card, I really don't think it matters at all that you chose the same colours, after all it's a completely different medium and anyway it suits her so well :) xx
