My Favorite Things is sponsoring Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Cuppa Cocoa!  

The LEAD of the Cuppa Cocoa challenge will receive $20 gift code for the MFT Store!


Here's how I was inspired by the challenge


I live in Washington State, the place with Super Bowl Fever.  It seems that Seattle will now be known for Starbucks and the Seahawks.

This card was inspired by that....I'm such a sports fan :)

I've been smitten with watercolor paper and a renewed love of my fabriano's.  Luckily I still have several boxes, yes, I don't just buy one of something {rolling my eyes}.


The coffee sleeve has been painted with a watercolor.  It's a tray I picked up at Michael's...full of pretty colors.  I mixed two shades of blue for today's card.

Everything is nestled onto a whisker graphics bitty bag.

I'm also linking up to the current challenge over at

Paper Issues


I'm super proud that this fits into my self-challenge


The coffee cup is Impress and the sentiment is classic A Muse....both wood mount.

Hope you are inspired to play along!

  7. Super cute, Amy! Love the bag with the other elements and of course I see you've tucked in something related to coffee. :) I'd love it if you linked this up (and your other fun coffee projects) to the latest link up at Paper Issues. It's called Fill 'er Up and this definitely fits the bill. Hope to see you there. :) http://www.paperissues.blogspot.com/2014/02/new-issue-fill-er-up.html
