share the love.


Howdy!

I'm still on my Self-Challenge to use what I've hoarded...

Can you spot them in today's card?


That glorious green Studio Calico paper is one of them....the other is the fine Avocado Arts Perfect Blend stamp set that I won...actually I won a total of 3 Avocado Arts sets!!!


Share the love..journal card from Amy Tan's Ready Set Go collection.....so are the papers that I pieced the to-go cup with!

This card is for my Momma's birthday, which is next month.  She is a diehard Starbucks fan.  She goes daily, has a cup of drip and reads her book {green with envy here!}...As so many of you know, I too am a Starbucks fan....I gotta tell you though, I might switch over to Seattle based Tully's coffee for the new owner.    

4 words for you:

Sweet Mother of Pearl.

I'm playing along with the gals over at CAS-ual Friday:


My card measures 3x6.  Such a fun size!

I'm also playing along with 

Shop Pumpkin Spice Challenges


Coffee/Cocoa/Tea

How could I resist?

Lovely! I like the non-traditional size and the hoarded supplies you used. And I agree with you on the new owner of Tully's - definitely a worthwhile reason to switch. ;)

Great to hear that you're challenging yourself to use up your stash!

I love the skinny card and it goes perfectly with your tall cup of coffee!

Starbucks coffee is a bit strong for me but I see they have come out with a new blonde roast coffee. I'll have to give that a try! YUM!

The Pumpkin Spice challenge was MADE for you! I love the card you made your mom. The cup is adorable! I suspect lots of women will be switching to Tully's for their dreamy coffee. snicker Imagine if he came in to work the counter one day. Line around the building. Hey, that would be a great charity event!
