Your the cream in my coffee

Well its Monday and I did have a great time this weekend creating lots of cards in the Studio while I did laundry in the next room.  I pulled out several stamp sets I haven't used in a long time and had some fun.  This first card is all SU paper, the blue dots was just a scrap I found, a MS decorator punch and OCL stamp set 'Fueled by Caffeine' and the verse I did on the computer.

This was a real simple card that I stamped coffee beans in Versamark on the red SU card stock,then added Pacific Blue cs and ribbon with black eyelets to match the black steam coming from the coffee the image is from Whipper Snapper.  I colored all this with Copic's and finished 100 cards that I will mail off tomorrow for Operation Write Home headquarters.   I'm really proud that in 9 months I've made 500 cards for OWH its been my sanity for quite some time.  

I have nothing new to report, Mom is still getting up about 3:30 AM and wandering around, she never attempts to go outside but she sure is confused, I get her back to bed and within an hour she's up, dressed and finding the couch to sit on.   I'll send her back to bed and she'll undress get in bed and sleep maybe 2 hours and she's up dressed and down here again.   Today she has been talking to the girl next to her at dinner, OH and she's been staring at the crown molding smiling this afternoon.  When I asked her what she's smiling at she said the cow the lady said we could have when she moved.  I asked if it was in here and she said no out there in the field.  Most of the time she can't form sentences because she says the words just aren't there but today she has been fine with speech but way out there in la la land.   Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers I really appreciate them. 
You all have a wonderful day and I'll chat with you tomorrow.
God Bless,

Love this card. I am a coffee nut so this gives me some great ideas for cards for friends. I received the package and loved going through it. It felt like Christmas. Thanks for the cards. I love the American Eagle one!!!! It will become part of the decor in the new addition for my patriotic wall. Thanks so much!!! Hope your mom improves and you will remain in our prayers.
