You're in a Latte Trouble, Jack!

We hadn’t forgotten the transgressions of Captain Jack Java and through various sources had finally tracked the pirate to Hortons Hills where he was hiding. We packed along some high level summoning spells and extra elixirs to help us cast them. I didn’t want to take any chances of him successfully escaping the battle - we needed to finish him off fast. Hortons Hills is vast so the Guardian of Glitter cast Glitter Guide to point us right to Jack. As soon as the battle started I summoned Latte Anya for +9999 damage! It immediately drained all my mana, so I had to spend the next few turns replenishing whilst the other guildys cast their summoners.

This card was all about recycling. A while ago my lord husband had mistakenly purchased the incorrect size of coffee filters. Rather than just tossing the box in the recycle bin, I kept them (because I’m a hoarder like that). Well - I finally got to use one. I cut a square out of it and stamped “Latte Anya” from The Greeting Farm on it. The panels beside her are both part of a Second Cup coffee sleeve that I had also rescued from the recycle bin (good god, I’m saving garbage now!). I stamped the sentiment using the My Little Shoebox “Garden Party” set and a stamp from the Crafty Secrets “Coffee and Tea” set. This card earned me +112 earth elemental points for being a good citizen and recycling.

The inside was decorated with the Dylusions “Bordering on the Edge” set and a ‘lil coffee bean from the Crafty Secrets “Coffee and Tea” set.

I used that same bean on the envelope (mostly because it’s too cute not to use it!).

This recycled concoction will be brewing in the following challenges:
Speedy TV Simple Salutations Challenge #27: Card Using Coffee Tea or Cup
The Greeting Farm’s FFF: Thank You Card
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #5: Anything Goes
My Craft Spot Challenge #82: Anything Goes
Retro Sketches Challenge #46

Thankfully, we managed to dispatch Captain Jack Java rather quickly and he wasn’t able to escape battle, which he attempts ever second turn or so. The Lady Commander of Copics did come away with an injured leg, but it will heal. That vile pirate will no longer be bothering the Crafters Guild. Quest complete.

Like the recycling idea. I made a Halloween witch's broom using coffee filters. Thank you for entering MFP Simple Salutations Coffee, Tea or Cup challenge.
