I am not a tea or coffee drinker but if I were it would be in a cup as pretty as this one http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/simple-salutations-challenge-47-5-29-13

Joseph Coat

OMG it took me many attempts to get anything I wanted to post I don't know why I have done this technique in the past . However I did just learn the weathered bows and decided not to cover the background but let it shine in all it's glory  http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/

Household Inspired

This is my most used mug . I bought the mug and tiny butterfly  stamps at a yard sale and when I got home I wondered why. Now it is a perfect fit for this challenge.    http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/friends-of-speedy-tv-challenge-72-05-13-13-inspired-by-something

Kraft Color?

Fifty years I have been an interior designer worked with color every single day I have never heard of Kraft color . I googled it and got the colors of thee Kraft food boxes, going by the sample I am guessing it is the butcher paper color which is what I used , however it doesn't look that beige/brown on the screen . I used MFP Dogwood set to follow the sketch. http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/sketch-with-a-twist-challenge-45-05-07-13
