Rise & Shine (and have a cup) – by Holly McMillen

It’s Monday morning again – good morning!

There is nothing better to start your day than a nice hot cup of coffee. The warm and cozy feel of the buffalo plaid paired with the mug is so perfect for this chilly time of year. It makes me want to snuggle up into my favorite chair and totally enjoy that cup! Take a look:

Totally {{{ loving }}} this!

Those colors and prints/patterns are wonderful – the black and burgundy, buffalo plaid, delicate floral – they all work together so beautifully.

I always love to see just how easy it is to create a lovely project using our A Cup of JAVA die set and companion stamp set.

The mug is so lovely cut from that gorgeous paper. All the printed papers used on this project are from the beautiful Christmas in the Country collection by Prima.

Holly used vellum for the steam – a fun way to get a more realistic looking stream of steam.

So pretty – and now I think I need to go and refill my cup!

You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.
