A Morning Without Coffee

Good morning! I know three days in a row for posting, hard to believe but I have been staying up later and getting up earlier so I can squeeze in a few minutes each day to stamp. My card today uses the stamp set Morning Cup with Love Letter DSP and Basic Black card stock. I used copics to color with and got a stray mark about half way through coloring so decided to try save it by flicking some more ink on randomly.  I am not a coffee drinker but this set reminded me so much of my Mom, she had a coffee pot on from the time she woke up until she went to bed. She used to get together with my aunt and our neighbor for a "coffee klatch" almost every day and I used to sit at the table with them and listen as they talked and laughed together. That is one of my fondest memories of her because she was so happy during those times. She got cancer at age 38 and died when she was only 43. Toward the end she was unable to eat or drink but I used to dip the glycerin swabs in coffee and moisten her mouth with them. Thanks for stopping by, have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
