JJ Coffee - Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge for the 1st of September, 2019

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.
Here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:

and the prize is 4 images from their shop.

I picked Make it Snappy - JJ Coffee which apparently I am like this in the morning according to my beautiful daughter Abigayle, although I generally don't drink any caffeine until she is at school and I have done some exercise! So not sure exactly where she gets that from!! :)
Anyway, I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card and then cut out using my paper cutter. Then I have coloured with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
  • eye - G21, G07, G28
  • hair - E33, E15, E19, E47
  • lips - R20, R22
  • sweater - V22, V25, V28, V99
  • coffee cup - RV55, B12, B14, B16
  • chair - C1, C3, C5
  • apple - YG00, R35, R37, R59, YG63, YG67, G19
  • muffin - E53, E55, E57, E59, BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
  • plate - B12, B14, B16
  • iPad - W1, W3, W5, W7, C5, C7, C9
  • background - 0, W0, W1, W3, W5
  • outline - BG02
I have adhered the coloured image on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions and kept it very simple.

Here is a close-up of the colouring - as I was preparing the close-up, I realised that I had not coloured her lips! So here is a close-up with some pink lips:
