I Want A Coffee.

It's 9:15 pm and I'm craving Starbucks.
Every Saturday morning I take my daughter to gymnastics class.
I get to spend a blissful hour and a half with my book and fancy coffee.
(There's a Chapters right across the street)
But this past weekend she was feeling a little under the weather so I kept her home.
Now I'm in withdrawl because my body missed it's Salted Caramel Mocha :)
I'm gonna make a tea.......
True story - my mom's ex-neighbour was in the drive-thru lane at a Timmy's (Tim Hortons) in a small town south of London, Ontario and he was paying for his coffee but dropped his change. He opened his car door, leaned out and reversed because the quarter rolled out of reach. As he rolled back the door bumped the yellow guard post and trapped his head. Really, paramedics had to be called, police were there, all because of 25 cents.
My mom moves ALOT. Every couple of years. I don't really understand why, it's just her way. And her neighbours are always unusual. Her last house I swear her neighbours were ghosts :) The house was creepy in a haunted kinda way, although there was a family of  6 living there it seemed abandoned. I would only see the dad and he was always hunched over and a slow walker. But if I looked away for even a second he'd be gone when I looked back.

The reason I'm here though is to show you my card.
I saw a card sorta similar to this in an old PaperCrafts magazine and it put me in the mood to get crafty.

The sentiment, dots and flower stamp are all from the same stamp set that I've had for ages but rarely use and the papers were in my scraps pile. Easy and fun to make. The brads are My Mind's Eye but I bought them on sale so that's ok.
I put Glossy Accents over the vase but my photography skills are too poor to show it :)

I'm not a coffee drinker but I'm thinking a Salted Caramel Mocha might just convert me!

Fab card! I love all the little details.

P.S. Thanks for the stories! Last night I was in a Timmy's drive thru and I was complaining about how long/how much stuff the guy two cars in front of me was getting. He didn't trap his head though. ;-)
