Coffee Collection

There's a coffee party on my blog today.  It's no secret that I love making coffee cards and if you saw Tuesday's card you'll see that I was playing with my new letterpress tools, so I inked up a few more and die cut out a few more coffee cups and then left them to percolate on my messy desk for a few days.


I decorated a Carolines Coffee Roasters coffee bag with a fun tag that uses this week's PTI Make It Monday technique. 

Next up I used this week's Play Date Cafe colors.


This card uses this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  Thank you so much guys for selecting my card from last week's challenge as a Top 3 Mouse, I was truly tickled.


  
And this one is basically a redo of the card from Tuesday, just with Authentique Blissful paper and some PTI kraft ribbon tabs.  It uses the CR84FN colors.


And if you made it this far you deserve to treat yourself to a cup of coffee!  I have a fun little guest blogger post up on the Camping with Style blog, no cards, but there is some coffee (and wine too!).  You can actually see me, a true rarity in our house since I am the one who takes all the photos.
