Thanks Pam for the yummy color challenge. The curry is a great neutral for the Christmas red and green. I am here with today's 'Rose is Rose' Comic Strip fresh from the paper. My mornings always begin with the newspaper and espresso!
I decided to divide the strip into three panels and use the colors as mats for the action. I love fussy cutting, but have to admit it is difficult to cut newspaper with any finesse. I wanted the characters to have some dimension by coming 'out of the frames'.
The fancy espresso art was colored with Copics...imagine if your husband took the time to design a rose in the crema of your cuppa. I adore Rose and her hub, Jimbo. And even more so Rose's alter ego.
So fresh from today's funny page I present you with my take on the color challenge. Please share your fav coffee story with me.
Thanks for looking.

Wonderful card Susan! I love to sit with my coffee in the morning before anyone else is up. Since DH doesn't drink coffee or tea I have no romantic tales regarding same. Love the way you framed your action and used the staples! Great fussy cutting of the crema rose cup - letting the eye drift over the cup with the steam. Fantastic!

I am smiling here. This is adorable! I love how you used the comics ... my DH favorite section of the paper after sports! I have to say though I don't often read the paper and never drink coffee!!! Love your card.

Fun card for the latte lover, Susan. There was a barista in Grand Central Station in NYC that could create fantastic designs with the last bits of foam as she poured your latte. Your card brought back those memories for me.

I stopped buying newspapers when I started reading the new online - I do miss the comic strips and had forgotten about them 'til now. Great use of the comics - very clever design. (BTW - I did do a lot of puzzles when I was young.)

Oh, so cute. And I too miss the comics. I used to send cards to my son with some of his favorite strips from the paper when he was in college and med school. Thanks for the memories your card brought back!
