CASE-ing A Card

Fun challenge at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog
called CASE-ing DT
meaning we are to case the card below
All the rules can be found on the link above.


So, this is my first time entering into the Coffee Lovers challenge,
actually this is their first challenge besides the seasonal ones they do.
I have always been a 'stalker' during those challenges.
It is fun to see all the coffee/tea stamps being used
and believe me there are lots of them.

So, when seeing they are starting up a CASE-ing DT challenge
it hit me at a time where my mojo is just not working,
so what better way to get it back then with a little help
by 'casing' a card.

This is my take on it and I think I will do a few more
as I made my panel a bit bigger then it should be,
but it turned out kind of cute, you think?

I cut the word coffee on my Cricut Explore
and the coffee cup and the sentiment are from a
stamp set by The Greeting Farm that I won about 3 years ago or so.

It felt good to use up some designer paper, and it felt good to
ink up those never before used stamps
and best of all to use up more 'snippets' of paper.
I have to admit though, that I have to hold myself back
from adding a ribbon/bow across the!!

This turned out great, Diane! So cute. You had all the right stuff to make it work. I had to go check out the coffee lovers blog to see what it's all about. I know I've seen these hops before. Gee, I just got done making a coffee card and have another one to do, but not quite like this. I know it must have been hard for you to leave off the ribbon, but it looks awesome, and just think how easy it will be to mail if you ever choose to do so.
