Any kind of caffeine drink is a comfort for me so I need to have it daily. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I restricted my caffeine intake… my husband would actually weigh it out daily. You don’t understand the excitement I had when I gave birth and could have all the caffeine again! Of course, I don’t really have too much (1 coffee or latte + 1-2 cups of tea later in the day), but I am happy I am not limited anymore.

Anyway, I made a fun card with a loose watercolored background patterns. I started by stamping different images from Sweet Latte in a light brown ink on watercolor paper with deckled edges. I watercolored loosely with Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors.

I added chunky glitter to represent sugar. 🙂 The sentiment is from Concord and 9th’s Let’s Chat set, which is an older retired set. I love how this card turned out! Funny though, I don’t add any sugar in my tea or coffee! But I wanted to make a SWEET card.
