Before you start laughing ...

ATC 269 at my pitiful attempt at the coffee theme over on TMTA this week *LOL* ... I need you to take the following evidence into consideration!

1] I don't own a single cup stamp

2] I don't own a single coffee label stamp

3] I have no cup or coffee images anywhere in my TMTA coffee craft room

4] I have no ink in my printer either so I could n't even download one!

5] I love coffee!

What to do?

Well I got out my trustee Versamark pen and drew a coffee bean. Yes I know it's not very good ... but hey - at least I tried!

If you are in any doubt how poor it is ... well I have taken a picture of my inspiration for good measure!!!

Dan 1 I do apologise for putting you all through the misery of looking at this ... but I wanted you to know that I tried!

Yes, I know I failed ... but I did try :0)

I have some good news too ... I made it into the Zutter Inspiration Station again ... this time for October ... and I am chuffed!

And if you missed out on me going on and on about September's Inspiration station - here that is too :0)

You may may not have ink in your printer or a coffee stamp etc. but, you've got lots of imagination - something I'm sadly lacking in - and I knew it was a coffee bean before I started reading! Your BIA book is fab too - congratulations xx
