One Of Those Spooky Moments

Definitely had a spooky moment this morning when I visited Yvonne’s blog Meggy’s Way as she was showing a card that she had made with coffee stirrers!!!

The spooky part is that last Thursday I was crafting with a friend who was having a clear out of her old stash.  She had loads of coffee sticks that she had collected from various coffee shops (as you do!!!) and she was going to bin them because she didn’t know what to do with them.  Also she had something new in her stash, Gelatos which she had bought on my recommendation.

Did a quick make for her where I combined 4 of the coffee sticks to make a frame and used the Gelatos for the background to give her a few ideas.

Didn’t get to finish the card whilst with Pam so I took it home with me ready to finish off.  Finished it this morning ready to take the photos.

Delayed the photo taking, as usual, by having a quick hop around blogland and … woah … when I hopped onto Yvonne’s blog she had posted a card where she had used ….. coffee stirrers.  Now tell me that’s not spooky.


The coffee cup, world and the globe are all stamps from Stampin Up.  The pics are from the Ephemera Pack by Tim Holtz.

    Shirley, I realy think we both have had one of those rare connected moments, as you said ‘spooky’.
    Anyway it looks like you didn’t have to snap your pieces of stirrer to make the frame.
    I think your card looks fantastic, love the texture and how true is that great quote.

    Fantastic card – I love your coffee stirrer frame, and the colours are so zingy – as good as a cup of coffee to wake you up. I love it! And I’m off to see what Yvonne’s been doing with her coffee stirrers!
