Simon says stamp

The Monday challenge at Simon says stamp is Coffee and Tea.

It just so happens I had in mind to do a layout this month about my down time and thing I like to do best is puzzles, especially word puzzles.
It is a tradition started by my grandmother, followed on by my mother then down to me.
It keeps my brain active.
I make myself a cup of coffee or tea, grab an accompanying biscuit and sit down for around 30-45 minutes. It might look like an ad for Take 5 magazine, but that isn't the purpose.

I started this page by using walnut ink in a saucer to stamp circles or coffee cup stains on my page.
Next, I lightly stamped using a Kaisercraft "Moments" stamp.

Then I added all the other ingredients, including antique lace that matches the doiley in the photo.

I've straightened that lace now.

Those coffee stains are great - I feel like I'm looking down at your desk or table while you work on your puzzles.

L-O-V-E this peek into your daily routine! I do Sudoku puzzles to keep sharp, but used to do lots of crosswords, word searches, etc. I like that you echoed the lace in your photo on the page.

Meant to say I have a coffee cup on my scrap desk that makes the PERFECT coffee ring stamper tool!
