What's Brewin'?

Subconsciously my mind was bewing something, I just could not determine the flavour until while I was creating the card. Had the idea to make a neutral card, that could be sent to both a woman and a man, but realised that I need to send a card next week for one of my best friend's birthday. To assist me, I had the latest Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 143.

Tried to use coffee-like colours in the card - the paper underneath the coffee bean bag is actually from an Ikea paper place mat  - the glittered light brown paper is handmade paper from Frontline Papers - and love any excuse to use stamps from Taylored Expressions' "Let's Do Coffee" stamp set.

The receiver is not a bow-kind of person, so attached a crocheted flower (from Panduro's Scrapbooking Moments collection) with his initial: S.

What's brewin? At his house there are plenty of types of coffee as he is really enthusiastic about it. If he should ever get tired of his business and sell it - I could easily imagine that he would be the kind of entrepreneur that would start his own coffee shop chain.

What's brewin? I always need to hear the latest news from his house, as he is married to my best friend and they have two wonderful kids, who regard me as their "aunt".
