International Day of Happiness!

Here it is, time for another duel - despite the Corona Virus pandemic.  Tami is the Hostess for the Divas and Terry (L) is the hostess for the Divas.  Since March 20th is the International Day of Happiness...and coffee makes many people VERY happy...They decided to send us coffee themed kits for the duel.

Here is the front of my card, which features some hand-stamped DP that Terry sent.  I just LOVE hand-stamped DP!!!

Terry stamped the Coffee Blend Turnabout Stamp by Concord & 9th using Dark Chocolate, Warm Cocoa, Warm Glow Amalgam, Chocolate Truffle Amalgam, Tomato Soup and Turquoise Sea inks.  Matching papers by Gina K are Tomato Soup and Turquoise Sea.

Here you can see the left panels opened to show off the embossed card stock that Terry included: Close to Cocoa CS embossed with Sizzix Alterations folder.  Cute, right?
The coffee cup die cut is from Concord & 9th, their Coffee Blend dies & stamp.
Here is the card fully extended:
I used a sentiment she sent from Hero Arts Monthly kit, August 2018.  I sponged a little of Stampin Up's Cajun Craze ink onto the punched sentiment.  It's pretty close in color to the Tomato Soup color.
Ribbon from Michael's and Enamel Dots are from the Paper Studio and Eyelet Outlet.

Thank you Terry for a great kit!  Please use the links on the left to visit the Divas and other Dazzlers for their cards.

We were asked to share something that makes us happy - besides coffee.  Since I am self-isolating to keep my parents safe (mild, questionable symptoms so far) I'll have to go with, the internet and all of my streaming options, a couple of novels, a jigsaw puzzle and - of course - all of my card making treasures!!!

Stay healthy and be kind!
