Grab Life by the Beans

We are in the middle of winter storm Luna.
My son and I shoveled the driveway,
 and by the time we finished we could have started over again :~(.
No point in fighting a losing battle, must mean it's time to stamp :-).
I made a very CAS card for three challenges ~ 
sketch at Less is More,
theme at CASology ~ "Drink," and
technique of paper piecing at Simon Says Stamp.
The coffee cup and "coffee" in the cup are paper pieced.
The beans are fussy cut.

Supplies ~ 
Stamps:  Craft's Meow Warm Winter Wishes, Paper Smooches Cyber Cafe
Paper: PTI Rustic White & Aqua Mist, SU Soft Suede, Authentique 6 X 6 Bundle - Gathering
Ink:  SU Soft Suede

Hope you are warm and dry wherever you are!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
