round 'em up

Good morning friends! It is Sunday and I have two posts for you so make sure you look up top for my Page plans card today too!

How many times have you wanted to send a friend a card to let them know you are thinking of them? Well, how about inviting them for coffee too? This card is a great example of a fun way to invite your friend. Since the 15th of each month is Sweet N Sassy Stamps round up I thought that is what I would make. The coffee cups and sentiments on the main panel are from Warm Up set and the "thinking of you" sentiment is from the Bee Happy set. I used a Mojo Monday sketch and some fun Porcelain Basic Grey patterned paper. Going with the dot theme on the coffee cups I added white dots to each of the layers which followed the piercing on the bottom really well. A couple of pearls on the coffee cups really gave this card some fun dimension too. And what is funny about this card is that I can't send it to anyone until after Easter as I gave up caffeine and soda for lent. Yeah...the first five days were really rough!

Want to see what the other SNSS design team members made? Just head over to my side bar to click on each of their blogs. Have fun!
