CCEE Supply Challenge

Happy Monday, ya'll! Monday means it's time for another Cheers & Challenges Eager Eight (CCEE) challenge. Today our supplies are brought to us by DawnL. She sent us this beautiful designer paper and moss green brad and gave us carte blanch to create whatever we wanted. Thank you, Dawn! I love this gorgeous designer paper!

A good friend of mine is a coffee addict...just like me...so I wanted to go with a coffee theme for her birthday card. I created my coffee cup using my circle Nestabilities. I used the small piece I snipped off the top of the cup for the base of it. I sponged the Close to Cocoa cardstock with Close to Cocoa ink on the edges. The coffee handle was made with SU's large and small oval punches. The scalloped floral border is a Fiskar's punch; I used SU's double rectangle punch for my ribbon weave.




I used the Midnight Madness sketch challenge and have a link to their blog in my sidebar, if you want to play, too!

Never got a chance yesterday to pop in for a cuppa and say how much I lied this. Hey, how come your cut off the top bit looks so good on the bottom. When I tried that last week it just didn't look right.
Maybe it's coffee in the mug, but I fancy some nice steaming hot chocolate - it's all those colours in the card!
