Java Great Day!

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I hope you are having a good week so far...just a couple more days to the weekend!
Do you like coffee?  I'm afraid that I may very well be addicted to the stuff!  So, when the new Cricut Lite cartridge Love You A Latte came out, I knew I had to have it.  And, when you pair it with the fabulous stamp set Perk Up from Pink By Design ... well, you just can't go wrong!

* Paper - Making Memories - Just Chillin' Paper Stack
* Cricut - Love You A Latte cartridge.  Coffee cup was cut at 3 inches.  I cut the bottom layer twice and used pop-dots to add some dimension.  I added Glossy Accents to the "coffee".
* Circle mats were cut using Nestabilities and I inked them up using Versafine's Vintage Sepia ink.
* Brown mat was created using a Martha Stewart Punch.
* Sentiment - Pink By Design - Perk Up stamp set.
* I added chocolate brown brads to each corner of the mat (these are from my stash, not sure who made them.)

I added stitching lines around the teal colored mat using my white gel pen.  And, added a few dots here and there to the coffee mug. I love this paper...I think that plaid is just gorgeous!


And there you go! I really like the way these teals and blues came together for this cute little card.
Ok, before I let you go, I want to remind you that I am giving away two $10.00 Gift Certificates to the fabulous Pink By Design Store this Saturday (July 30th).  If you would like a chance to win one of these certificates, read my last post, Faith and follow the instructions.

I hope the rest of your week goes well for you...hang in there...the weekend's comin'!
Until next time,
