Toast 'n Coffee

Today while the Guardian of Glitter and I were battling our way through the Dungeon of Terrors we came across some interesting spoils. Some elixirs, a sack of coins, a few higher level swords and, more importantly, a magical coffee bean that is said to be extinct. No one has laid eyes on this particular bean in over half a century. I carefully wrapped the bean in my teal handkerchief so we could examine it further upon our return to the Guild Hall. It’s hard to study a magical find when you are trying to slay giant poisonous spiders at the same time.

I dusted off my Lawn Fawn “Love ‘n Breakfast” set that I haven’t used in ages and paper pieced the super cute toaster and toast. I stamped the sentiment from the same set above the cute trio. I used the Tim Holtz “Odds & Ends” set to stamp the blank tickets then pulled out the “Coffee and Tea” Crafty Secrets set to fill the blank tickets.
The inside was stamped with the “Coffee and Tea” set, except I used the My Pink Stamper “Font-abulous” set for the word crafts. This card was mailed to none other than my sister, The Lady Commander of Copics, as we hadn’t gotten together to “play crafts” in a while...and it’s always fun getting something in the mail other than bills!

This bitterly toasty card will be entered into the following challenges:
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #45: Food & Beverage
Paper Playtime Challenge #88: Autumn Colors
Lawnscaping Challenge #45: Dusting ‘Em Off (Love ‘n Breakfast set) 

Back at the Guild Hall, I placed the magical coffee bean on my workbench and went rifling through my drawers for a magnifying glass. The little bean slowly blinked and was suddenly staring up at me with large chibi eyes! Next it unfolded its arms and legs which had been tucked in so tightly they looked to be part of its body. This was truly an amazing find! The Guardian of Glitter and I shall spend the night studying this interesting creature and seeing what secrets this 'lil bean holds.
