Love Happens Over Coffee


Good morning and TGIF!!  It’s Friday and that means a new Viva La Verve sketch challenge :)  This week we are going CAS, although I added a few extra elements to my card.  I was thinking this would be the perfect sketch for making the dh’s Valentine card.  Many of you know that we met at Starbucks so I thought I would add 2 SB cups with little hearts on them (I was a grande nonfat latte and he was a grande caramel macchiato :)  I did a little “surgery” on 2 of my stamps from the Better with You set…I really wanted to use the word ‘love’ on this card rather than ‘life,’ so I carefully cut off each word from the main sentiment so they would fit back with the original sentiment.  That’s the beauty of clear stamps!  If you check out the stamp set, you might say, “Moe, why didn’t you just use the “Love at first Sip” sentiment?  Well, that’s being saved for our Anniversary ;) {wink!}.  Hope your weekend starts off right…woohoo!  Hope you can play with us over on the Viva La Verve forum…would love to see your take on this beauty of a sketch :) Or do you need some Valentine stamps?  Check out the sale over in the Verve Store!

Love that you did "surgery" to your stamps! What a great choice, too, because the sentiment is sweet :) Love this cute card!

Love this card! So sweet and personal. Great colours. Those coffee cups are so cute. I like how you used vellum as the horizontal strip.
