Take Life One Cup at a Time – by Chris Franco

(Current US Shipping Special - $3.95 – $5.95)

Good Monday morning!  Let’s all breathe deep, enjoy a cup of coffee this morning and begin this week anew. Today Chris Franco is back with us sharing a coffee card she made using our JAVA and Coffee or Tea? sets. It’s a fun and super simple card to make with just a few die cut pieces placed atop some lovely designer paper. Take a look:

The die cut coffee cup was made with our JAVA die set.

The sentiment is from our Coffee or Tea? stamp set cut with our Fishtail Sentiment Banners.

The paper is from the  Cedar Lane pad by American Crafts and is ON SALE!

What a super fun coffee card – just love it!

Thanks so much, Chris, for sharing this with us today – much appreciated.


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