Sketch challenge with a coffee theme

I learned of a new challenge blog a few weeks ago called 'A la Card Monkey' and of course was rather fond of them just cause of the name!  I subscribed back then but this is my first time playing along with one of their challenges.  It's a sketch challenge with a coffee theme.

I downloaded this freebie girl/coffee from The Sherlocks Home awhile back so thought she'd be perfect for this thank you card.

I printed the image from my computer.  Colored her in with watercolor pencils (that I have not mastered I might add), but love how they blend!  I used patterned paper paired with brown.  Brads hold the tags in place.  I hand wrote thank you.  And finished off with a bow.


  1. Great job with the sketch, Mary! And thanks for the tip on the monkey stamp. I got one for me and Shirley! lol

    Have a great day,
