I Like You a Latte! for My Artistic Adventures

I made this fun retro card for the Love Challenge at My Artistic Adventures. Besides the gorgeous vintage collage sheets, available in her Etsy Shop, Heather has come up with some fabulous digital papers that I just couldn't resist. The background paper is from the Vintage Sweater Hearts Collection and the print on the coffee pot (Yes, I actually dusted off my Cricut.  Yea, ME!) is from the sweet Vintage Valentines Sweethearts Bitty Collection.  I love how all the papers coordinate and are easily resized to fit the scale of your project.  The fun couple is from the Gecko Galz Retro Love Story Collage Sheet. Gotta say, they crack me up.  Is it love, or is it caffeine?  LOL

I size, crop and print my stuff on my Printmaster Platinum Program which allows me to crop in shapes and color them, so that's what I did with the heart.  After printing it, I just cut it out and glued on some mini pompom trim and popped it on the double matted DP.  The coffee post was cut on my Cricut using the From My Kitchen cartridge, the couple also cropped in my program and fussy cut and popped on the pot.  the sentiment was computer generated, matted and popped at well.

I supposed you noticed how high the coffee pot was sitting above the heart. What gives?  The whole caffeine and love jitters theme just begged for an Action Wobble so here's my attempt at the action shot.  HeeHee!  Don't think they're coming down anytime soon.
