Coffee solves everything and more

Coffee solves everything, right?  Thanks Sugar Pea for the new goodies, I'm blaming ~amy~ again for the enabling (she created the Coffee Paper Lovers Facebook page, it's all her fault).  But super quick, b/c I made the card below the other day for CAS(E) this sketch and I have minutes left to make the deadline.  I added some May Arts burlap string to the card, b/c in addition to the water color trend, I'm a bit obsessed with ribbon.  And feeling good about actually using patterned paper on my card, there must be a reason I have so much of it in my craft room, right?  The black and white card are two somewhat neglected Hero Arts sets, so glad the challenge inspired me to pull them out.  I'm going to use the card below in my Valentine's Day card class next week, and I am so excited to say for the first time in the 3 years I've been teaching card classes, I have prepped all the pieces a week ahead of time (my entire family was confused and wonder if I looked at the calendar wrong).

Love your coffee card!!! So many super fun and totally perfect details! And what a sweet Valentine's Day card for your upcoming class!!! Great job prepping ahead of time! I think that calls for a celebratory glass of wine. Cheers!
