SOS 437: I Need a Cup of Coffee

I bet you've already guessed that the brief this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash is to make a project with a coffee (or tea... or hot chocolate) theme, right? In which case, all I need to do is show you my card:

I am slightly obsessed with this Caffeinated Flamingo from The Rabbit Hole Designs. He was the first thing I chose when I spent the giftcard I won in the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' blog hop last fall. Ok, I guess, three months is not super-old as far as stash goes, so luckily I also had some so-old-I-don't-know-where-they-came-from sequins; as well as my absolutely ancient collection of Basic Grey 6x6 papers. I used the latter both for paper-piecing the "blahmingo" and also for my background mats. Speaking of paper-piecing, the next time I use this set, could you please remind me to stamp the bottom half directly on the background panel so I don't have to fussycut those skiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnny little legs ever again? Kthx. By the way, did I mention that the sentiment (plus several more) and the cool coffee molecule diagram thingie come with this #flockstar AND that this set is currently on sale

I hope you'll hop, swim, fly, jog, gallop, canter, sashay, crawl or otherwise navigate over to SOS to see what the rest of my design team darlings have made, then start planning what caffeinated creation you'll link up with us this fortnight!
