Time for a coffee break!

Working from home today and I've been very effective so far. Right now I'm preparing for a lecture I will have tonight. Well, I needed a little break so I made a gorgeous cup of cappuccino and thought I'd blog some.
Yesterday we were at a dinner party with some friends, and we gave the host an American bluberry for their garden and a card. I used the always so inspiring sketch over at 2Sketches4You The flower is a stamp from Prima, colored with water colors and covered first with some stickles and then a LOT of glossy accent. It worked really fine even though it doesn't show in this pic!
Right now I'm waiting impatiently for some new super cute Magnolia stamps from Pandora's Willow Tree -the American Webshop selling Magnolia stamps. Can't wait to get this "Tilda with a bundle of sticks" for my autumn cards:

I've changed the moderation of my blog after a call for help from sweet Kath and I hope I did it right so this will work.

This card is gorgeous - it looks as if you picked the flowers and accents right out of an English Garden. I bet your American friends were absolutely thrilled with it.
