Now I have heard the saying "Music soothes the savage beast." My card shows what really soothes them... coffee. Well, at least it soothes the wild beast in me in the morning. I stamped this little Panda bear and I had some coffee cups that I had stamped last week sitting on my desk. I knew my panda just wanted to have his own cup of joe.

I cut his arm so it would fit through the handle of the cup.  Do you recognize the cup? It is from the stacked cups. I just cut off the saucer. I knew I wanted steam to be coming out of his cup. I taped a small piece of cheesecloth to the back of the cup and I frayed the cloth to make the steam. You can see a close up of the steam in this next photo.



This is my second card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
I hope you will join in on both hops because there are lots of prizes available.
