my cuppa joe

Good Monday morning friends! I hope your weekend was all you wanted and needed it to be!

I wanted to make a card for a friend and when I received this super cute My Cuppa' Joe set from Gina K...I knew it had to be with this set. I love all the coffee images and the sentiments are great too! Inside I put the sentiment "Friendship is like good coffee ~ rich warm and strong." Isn't that lovely? I used THIS sketch from i{heart}tostamp. I know the image is a bit small for this sketch but I just had to use it as the recipient and I both like our coffee!

All card stock on this card (except for the Gina K white) is from Basic Grey's Wassail holiday paper line. I'm actually really happy with how this came out and the picture doesn't really do this card justice. The colors are so rich and pretty that it makes the card nice without my having to try...yay!

Tomorrow is Created by Courtney Tuesday and while I haven't made my project for it yet...I'm excited to come up with something. I'm hoping I can be a little original at least. I hope you'll check back to see!

This looks great, Lorie! I love that paper!

Missy said...

Great card. I do love it. The paper is great. I do have a confession to make. I am the rare few who cannot stand the smell of coffee. I am actually a little backwards. The ONLY time I have liked the smell of coffee was when I was pregnant with my first son, crazy.
Thanks for sharing the card. I can't wait to see what you come up with for tomorrow. I might not get to see it right away though as I have a VERY busy day for tomorrow.
