Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - "C" is for Caffeine

Good Morning Blogland Peeps! Have you had your Coffee yet? (Or you favorite form of Caffeine?), because today the challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is "C" is for Caffeine!
Now I not only LOVE my morning coffee, I NEED my morning coffee - it allows me to function at a normal, polite, socially-acceptable level, but only if it is full of sugar, which helps to make me EXTRA sweet and offset any grumpiness - Smile.  So this challenge really resonated with me when I created this card:

I decided to use this wonderful wee mouse from my House Mouse Stamp collection, and the phrase "Be The Mouse" was running through my head like a mantra the entire time I was coloring him with my Copic Markers. I think my absolute LOVE of coffee came through... don't you?  The coffee cup is from a 2002 Stampin' Up set that was given to me when someone cleaned out their craft room, and the saying is one from Unity Stamps, so this card is a true compilation of stamping products!

So come on over to the Sisterhood to see what my team mates have created, and why not think about joining in?  You have until midnight on Friday, September 16th to link up your caffeine-related project.  We always select a Queen and Princess of Snark and someone is offered a Guest-Designer position for every challenge!   

As Always, thanks for popping in today to see what I am up and please do leave me a comment if you like what you see!
