Caffeine Junkie!

Hi Everyone, do I need the caffeine! We have just cleared the attic, and it seems that my son has more up there than we do! It's a job trying to get him to throw things! Oh well.

The kitchen has had a clear out, so much china, there's only 3 of us and I am still holding stuff for the 20 odd we used to cater for when family came to stay with their little ones. The charity shops have had a field day. I may still get rid of more after the new kitchen is fitted and I start putting it all back and realising that I really DON'T need it. LOL. Everything is being delivered on the 11th and they start fitting on the 15th, so nearly at the end, of a LONG haul. THEN it's clear and paint each room. Hopefully we will be clear and finished before Winter so we can batten down the hatches and cuddle up warm and cosy and clean LOL.

Anyhow on to my card which started me moaning.

A super card Faith, I love the coffee theme.
We converted our loft into two bedrooms and a bathroom - that solved the hoarding problem.

What a great card Faith I love your design.
I think we are all the same by holding on to thing I’ve still got things in cupboards
That we got when we got married 26 years ago I would have so much space if I cleared it all out.
Thank you for sharing

Gorgeous card Faith, and love the theme. All the little elements, especially the the coffee beans just spot on. Anyone who receives it will just want to sit with a coffee and just appreciate it
