Trio of coffee themed cards

I was busy this morning.  The wet, rainy day (which I am happy about) inspired me to pull out my Warm and Cozy collection by Pebbles and some dies from My Favorite Things.

First up I created this one for a CASeing DT over at the Coffee Loving Paper crafters blog.  Now you know me... not a coffee fan... so this could be a hot chocolate or a tea latte ;) I even sprinkled some on some cinnamon.  The Tissue Tape is from Scrapbook Adhesives and the stamp is from Precious Remembrance





Next up I created this card for the MFT sketch challenge.  Of course I altered the sketch a bit ;)  There is just something about the log and plaid paper... reminds me of family trips to get firewood.  We would spend the day, while my dad and his friend chopped the wood, the rest of us had fun and of course some hot chocolate.  Miss those days!  Once again, topped with some cinnamon and the twine is from May Arts.




Finally, after that I was left with a strip of 3 1/2 X 5 cardstock so I decided to create a skinny card.  All dies are from My Favorite Things



I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge. 

Of course they fit into this week's challenge:

Cute cards! I really like them all! We have a new local coffee shop and I'm thinking of asking them if I could make some cards to sell there. These would be perfect!!
