Coffee with Flair...

{PLEASE scroll down for my Greeting Farm post...it's "Stinkin" cute and you won't want to miss it...hee hee}

Hey friends!

I can't believe how fast this week has flown by....and want to thank you all again for so many well wishes regarding my oral surgery..there's an update below, as well :) You guys are AMAZING to me!

Well, it's Friday...time for another Friends with Flair Friday, sponsored by the incomparable Unity Stamp Company! I LOVE FWF's, cuz not only is it fun to create for it, but even MORE fun to share and with so many cool peeps that I've really enjoyed getting to know since we started this a few weeks ago! What's NOT to love, really?

Speaking of what's not to loooooooove, oh how I adore my coffee. Those of you that know me know all about my little connoisseur-ship (is that a word?) and love affair with it and so it actually surprises me that I don't have even MORE coffee stamps than I do.....but, I particularly LOVE this one from the September Kit of the Month and adore the saying that goes along with it! Because isn't it TRUE???? Coffee and friends ARE the perfect blend! At least in my book!

Speaking of friends, my friend Jessie Rone is the Featured Trendsetter this week over at There She Goes! Yay Jess!! This week, Jess's challenge is to make a monochromatic card. Well, I had to throw in the spiral clip on this card you see, because that is just SO Jess ;) But, the real reason for this card is because Jess is a really good friend of mine and is just one of the many lucky reminders I have in my life of how true the sentiment is... The girl has my back and can throw down some Starbucks with me while singing and blasting the radio.... and that's pretty awesome. So, thanks Jess...here's to another Venti Caramel Macchiato in our future...sooner than later I hope!

Well, that's it for this FWF Friday...thanks for stopping by and if you have a minute, please check out my Farm Fresh Friday post below (that's a lot of F's!)

Have an AWESOME Friday and remember, "A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent. " ~anonymous
