...but first Coffee!

Kjempekjapt kort til meg å være idag! Har ikke sovet inatt. Migrene igjen.. Så jeg satt litt på scrapperommet mitt og lagde et kaffe-kort etter skissen til Josmary i Hero Art kit fans gruppa på facebook. Er du fan av Hero Arts klubb kits'ene, så er du hjertelig velkommen til å bli med! Bare å legge deg til i gruppa, så vil en moderator godkjenne deg :)

A quickie card for me this morning, rarely make such fast creations, but had a rough night with no sleep due to migraines... And needed to relax my mind a bit, so thought I'd make a card for Josmarys sketch challenge for World Cardmaking day over at Hero Arts Kit fanatics Facebook group.

(sorry, my photos are a little weird as I haven't set up a good area for taking photos yet in my new scraproom - so askew! Need better lighting too it seems!).

EDIT: I have added some Hero Arts lacquer clear glue on some details after blogging this card ~ but wanted to show how just a little extra shine makes such a big difference in a card! ♥
