Keep Calm and Drink Coffee

keepcalmmaureenplut

Hi everyone!  Today’s card is kicking off a new month of sketches over on the Viva La Verve Sketch blog!  Julee is starting us off with a sketch and colour combination.  I really wanted to make another coffee card using the brand new Coffee set and Cuppa Joe Die Set.  I think these kind of cards are perfect for tucking a SB or Tim Horton’s coffee card into. Notice that sweet coffee mug?  Wonder how I cut out the space between the handle and cup?  Now it may seem obvious, but I only recently discovered this all by myself! LOL  Just cut and then glue it all back together!

Head over to the Viva La Verve blog to see more samples and learn about how you could win $100 in Verve product.  That would be a FUN shopping spree!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Errr.. I am pretty sure it's not nice of me to say, but THIS IS MY FAVORITE card on the Verve September blog hop. I loved it at the front, and it made me smile again when I saw it here on your blog. The colors and theme go perfectly together. A-dor-able! :) :)

This is truly a gorgeous card with all those patterns balancing each other out. I love the combo of pink and green, but the added kraft really brings the combo to a whole new level
