Fun Frame!

I recently discovered coffee beans in a canister I never use. Can't remember how long ago I did that--but long ago--haha! Told myself at the time I'd probably forget they were there & sure enough!  Couldn't just waste them & it popped into my head they could be a frame for my Stampendous coffee themed stamp.
Perfect timing since the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is in full swing.  I colored just a bit with a Memento Lady Bug marker, added Stickles to the word "friend" & cut a very old piece of designer paper with the stripes on an angle for the mat. Now I just need one of you to come have coffee with me so I can give you this card!  I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.
