A Cup or Two

I've been trying to create all day and it seemed like everything conspired against me, lol! It started off this morning when I got a call from the retirement home saying my Dad was carrying around a lamp because it was broken. I guess he was trying to get it fixed even though I had just talked to him. So off to the home to help my Dad...I finally got to get a card done for a challenge due in 1 hour. I was going to try to do all the challenges, they had 4 today, but just got the sketch done.
Here's a closeup of the pot of coffee. I covered it in crystal effects and it looks amazing IRL.

  6. What a day you had! You would think that the staff would have just taken the lamp from your dad... and tell him they would see that they would get it fixed for him in the near future.

    Your card is so neat! Love the coating of crystal effects and all the fabulous textures and dimension.
