How've you bean?

Today's challenge at 365 Cards - Day 150 is called an "Eye" for an "I" because I want you to substitute one word that sounds like another (like ewe for you), but has a different meaning - and use it in your sentiment. I believe they call this a homophone (I even Googled it!), and I've seen them used on stamps, rub-ons, and stickers, so there are lots to choose from. And when in doubt, computer-generated always works.

Here's my card!!! How've you bean (been)? I tell ya.. I was completely brain dead on this one, and this was the best I could come up with! I do hope the been / bean works for this challenge....

BTW - How've I bean, you ask??? HOT - we broke a record here in good ole' Grants Pass, OR, 108 degrees today!!!! Way, way too hot for me... I'm sure that I am melting even as I type this.... I hope it's cooler where you are today....

Supplies:
Flairdesign pp (I cut the coffee cup out of it)
Spellbinders Nestabilities Long Rectangle
Coffee beans & sentiment stamps... unknown
QuicKutz flourish
Sakura Gelly Roll pen Stardust
DCWV cardstock
Sparkly brown cardstock from Paper Zone
StazOn Timber Brown ink

This such an awesome take on the 365 card challenge!! What a great coffee card!! Love the flourish. Sorry about the heat!! We had a lot of humidity today and yesterday. It looks like more rain today. All we have is rain in NY! We had 22 inches in June!
