My Time to Craft - Drink it Up

Here is yet another DT card for My Time to Craft. The challenge this week is entitled Drink it Up.
You have to look quite closely to spot the drink in this one, but this chap looks as though he's really enjoying a sit-down with a cuppa.
I based the sketch on one from CCEE a few weeks ago and used a variety of starry digital papers in tea and coffee colours. I used a co-ordinating paper from Pink Petticoat to paper-piece the chair. Considering the fact that this is a digital image I think it's amazing that the pattern was printed as symmetrically as it is! (I had little control over where it printed the image on the paper).
This ribbon actually has spots on it, but it looked a little too much with the pattern on the paper, so I used it on the wrong side.
The sentiment is typed on the computer and mounted it with a Stampin' Up word window punch.
I'm off to see 42nd Street in the Festival Theatre in Chichester this evening, with a group of friends. I'm really looking forward to it! I can feel my toes tapping already.
Last night I had a phone call from friends who've just arrived in Canada on holiday... they wanted to wish me a Happy Birthday. Wasn't that kind!
