Being freshly returned from vacation, I am finding the need to create almost overwhelming !

Today's card is for Gingersnap Creations - a challenge blog I have often stopped by, but I don't think I have ever entered anything there before. So, a first time ! Their challenge is a warm drink for the winter, and although I am a chai tea lover, coffee is still one of my most favorite warmer uppers.

I used some very very old paper as the underpinning for the image - it resembles a coffee kiosk paper hand protector (what on earth are those things called anyway, maybe like a zarf) but much much softer. Don't know where I found it, but I know I have had it for more than 15 years. I added the image to it (the image is from Cassiscreations) and layered a white acetate frame on top.

I really enjoyed making this one, and it came together 1,2,3 - not usual for me, but I won't argue.
