Behind every woman….

I love this sentiment from Rupa Shevda’s newest set for Gina K.  It just cracks me up because it fits me to a T!  See….I used to not drink coffee.  I was a coke girl.  I used to have a vanilla coke from Sonic every day.

And then one day about 2  or 3 years ago….it just started making me nauseous.  I have no idea why. But I still cannot drink soda without getting nauseated.  And that’s hard sometimes!  There are days when I would just love to pop open a can of cold coke…..but I try it and after I sip I know if I drink more of it…..I’m gonna be sick.  Totally weird.

Ever since….I’ve learned to drink coffee.  Because this girl needs her caffeine!  It seems to really help with my allergy headaches….isn’t that great??!?!  That’s how my allergies present…when they act up (which is most of the time here is allergy-hell that is Texas) I get sinus headaches, etc.  Fun times.  So I drink coffee.  Lots of it.  No really, I just have a travel mug every morning.  And right now, I am in heaven because Coffee Mate’s Peppermint Mocha is BACK!  And thanks to the blog reader who informed me you can freeze it….I’ve started a back up stash in my garage freezer for after Christmas when the discontinue it!  You can read all about my love of Peppermint Mocha {here}.

Anyway, I found this great paper by Bo Bunny at a local scrap store last Thursday and I decided it would be perfect for this….bright and fun!


supplies: My Cuppa’ Joe by Rupa Shevda for Gina K Designs; patterned paper from Bo bunny, classic circle nestabilities, Pure Luxury white cardstock from Gina K Designs; pink passion cardstock and ink; sponge; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; heat gun; white satin ribbon from Gina K Designs; Copic Ciao Markers– YG03, YG23, R85, and RV02; and dimensionals.

I am hoping to pop in later with a “Stuff I Like” post – as it’s been awhile since I”ve done one and I have a few things lined up to share….but after Matthew’s been gone on National Guard duty for past two weeks…we’re just having family time.  Lotsa board games and Wii fun!  (Plus I spent all day Friday cleaning up after Alex and the flu bug he caught….fun times!)

    I still hate coffe, but that card is adorable. Nice job…

    I think the set is adorable and I love your card… but I just have to say that sentiments with punctuation or grammatical errors irk the nerd in me. 🙁 In the sentiment, the word “lotta” doesn’t need an apostrophe. If it had been written “lot o'”, the apostrophe would have taken the place of the ‘F’ in “of”. But “lotta” is a slang word that people take to mean “lot of”… no apostrophe needed.

    Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. 🙂

    In the meantime, nerds like me can just ink up the sentiment carefully and leave the unnecessary apostrophe out!

    Love your blog and all your creative enthusiasm… you’re inspiring!!

    You can FREEZE it! Oh man, I need to get to the store! I have 4 bottles of Peppermint Mocha in my fridge right now. It goes so fast here you have to buy it as soon as you see it come out. I think I will be stocking up some more now that I know this little tidbit! Adorable card too!

  • Dude! Thank you so MUCH for telling us that you can free the Peppermint! I too am a hoarder of it, and sorrowfully sip it all winter, thinking “oh, I hate when this is gone.” Now I can freezer hoard it! Woo-hoo!!!
