Still Jonesin' for Java with Fresh Brewed!

The image I used for the card below is *so* ME! The only thing missing is the frazzled look, mismatched/wrinkled clothes, kids at my feet, and...! Just kidding! (Sorta!) What I mean is - I LOVE MY COFFEE, & really miss catching up with old friends over a cup of java in the worst way sometimes. So I nabbed this awesome Fresh Brewed Design digi! 'Coffee Talk' is available as a freebie over on CDAC for fans to use for completing any of September's Fresh Brewed Challenges! Why not head on over to join in the Fresh Brewed Design fun?
