Coffee Fairy

Happy Saturday!  We made it through the week and it's time for another Krafty challenge over on the Krafty Girls Challenge blog.  Kimmie is our host this week and she's "tagged" us.  The challenge is to make a tag or include a tag on your card.  

I've been seeing all these posts lately about making homemade iced coffee drinks and wanted to jump on the bandwagon and try it out.  I'm a big coffee fan - iced or otherwise and I liked the fact that the ingredients will supposedly keep for a month in the fridge.  I used this method for the coffee concentrate (because I wanted to make a quart/litre rather than a gallon) and although I'm usually content to add milk to mine, I decided to try out this recipe for a sweet cream to go with it.  And since I was making it, I doubled everything up for a friend.  So tomorrow I will be the coffee fairy (I need my own coffee fairy) and deliver these yummy bottles.  

I used Lilybelle for my tag and the sentiment from one of the other fairies.  Really the sentiment should state that there's magic in the bottles, but what can you do?!  I used a manilla shipping tag and some Basic Grey Out of Print papers.  I threw some coffee coloured felt in there as well and tied it on with some twine. 

I hope you'll come play along with us over on the challenge blog!  You could win Becky Broadsword plus two other Steven Leary stamps of your choice!  Alrighty friends - I'm off to enjoy an iced coffee.  Have a wonderful weekend!
