Hot Java Mama’s

PP489 – A Theme Challenge
Anything Goes + optional twist of Masking

I managed to make this card work for 2 challenges which is always a nice bonus. Smiles is the theme at PaperPlayers and to me this card qualifies, as these ladies always bring a smile, as does the sentiment. As well I masked them off so I could stamp the illusion of a table cloth so this fits the Anything goes challenge too. Stamps used are Art Impressions and one from CTMH which I’ve had forever and never inked until today. The image was coloured with both watercolor and Inktense pencils. I layered the image piece over some bright yellow paper and then onto the card front. According to our current forecast we are likely to be pulling out summer clothes this weekend. It is predicted to be hot. Truthfully I would dearly love to be with my friends in a group like this image – sigh!

    1. Thanks Judy – I like a lot of the AI stamps but only have 3. Must remedy that as a lot of their stamps are amusing.


  1. A bunch of friends, coffee and laughter, what more could anyone wish for? Glad you like the card.


  2. Great card and is making me smile. I love those girlfriends and your table for them too. Very creative. Soon Johanna, Soon.

  4. Love this image and how you added the “table” for them to sit at! I miss hanging out with my girlfriends and SILs, so I know what you’re feeling. Hopefully soon! Thanks for sharing at The Paper Players this week!

  6. I am so sorry…your card did not make me smile…it made me LAUGH and GIGGLE out loud! This is image is hysterical, primarily because it reminds me of me and my friends. Yep..we are Hot Java Mamas. I’m sure my husband wondered what in the world I was looking at. I adore everything about this card, and I am so glad you shared with The Paper Players this week!!!

  7. Thanks for making my day. Truly I have nothing to complain about but for some reason this week has been a very up and down one emotionally with today being a down. Your comment just lifted me up in a big way. Thanks so much.


  8. Johanna, this is a great card! Love how you did the counter they’re leaning on. Beautiful work on it. Hopefully you can get together with your friends safely, soon.
