given enough caffenine



Coffee.... I love coffee cards...  I was inspired by Lisa's card for CAS(E) this sketch and decided to upcycle some take out coffee holders (I have a small stash that friends have given me, since I don't actually do take out coffee very often).  But hey, speaking of coffee-- one more day till I draw the winner for my super cool new Outside Inn take out coffee mugs, post a comment here if you're interested, I will mail the mug if need be.  Right, but back to the crafty agenda... I decided to play with the PTI Make It Monday Challenge, "Splitting Die Cuts."  And I will share the photos from my card making class soonish... maybe tomorrow, got side tracked today.
