Thanks a Latte

People who know me know I really love my coffee. But I am very particular about the coffee I drink. I know that everyone loves Dunkin Donuts, but for me it's all about Starbucks...and not just any Starbucks, it has to be French Roast...OMG, my mouth is watering thinking about it! LOL!
I have not been able to find the French Roast anywhere...I usually have my sister pick it up for me in the 2 1/2 pound bags but BJ's hasn't had it at all lately! My SAMS club only has Breakfast Blend and that is just not doing it for me....anyway, getting to the card...while we were playing Mahjongg I mentioned that I have not been able to find my FAVORITE Coffee and my friend Grace she would look for me at Costco. Well they had it and she picked up three bags for me...so I made her this card to thank her...I really need the French Roast fix!
And I figured if I'm really nice to her and show her I appreciate what she did for me, she won't mind going on another French Roast run at a later date!


This is a picture of my new sewing machine.
My sister Marlene bought if for me. We are swapping machines. She is going to take my Janome Sew MIni and I get this great big monster! LOL! It is bigger than the sew mini, and weighs more too, but I can handle it. It also does a few more detailed stiches than the sew mini so that makes me happy! LOL! I like to sew so I can handle this machine. It really does go zoom....and it has a light switch...I so missed that on the mini.
You can see some of the stitching from this machine on the card.


mwah to all!
