Artful Delight Cards




I love coffee cards, so when I misted the canvas butterfly in the Artful Delight card kit and made a huge mess, I decided that pehaps the stampable canvas would be better die cut into a coffee mug, and presto, a coffee themed card came to life.  And I thought the sentiment from Sunny Skies was appropriate, because I really do need my coffee to get things started in the morning.  I was inspired by Karen's Artful Delight last week on what to do with the little stamps in a set, so I used the kite string to create the coffee steam.




This card, is a loose take on the current Artful Delight sketch, still time to play along for your chance to win next month's kit.  And since I've been using the Lawn Fun Sunny Skies set this month from the Artful Delight kit I thought I'd play along with the Lawnscaping challenge, I used the balloons in the photo as my inspiration.
