Challenge #77 - Have a cuppa

Mmmmm...a nice warm cuppa

tea, coffee, cocoa, hot toddy, whatever

(even a cuppa kindness will suffice)

What does this theme conjure in your mind?

Your challenge this week is to create based on


Have a nice cuppa something tasty and think about it and then get crafty, creative, artsy about it!


Jana here: Freakishly enough, Rosemary and I had the same idea for our cards. But with a slightly different twist. Mine is Halloween themed. (Surprise!!!)

The middle of the flower is a SU stamped mug that I colored black and then cut out with my Exacto.


Rosemary here - back from vacation and I couldn't wait to go and play in my room!  I started looking for my favorite coffee stamps and I couldn't find them.  Apparently they have taken a coffee break.  But that's okay, sometimes you have to go to Plan B.  I did find my Coffee and Tea QuicKutz die set.  I don't use my dies nearly as much as I used to and that's a shame because you can make some cute stuff with them, fairly quickly too.

Here's a quick card that I think is pretty cute to send to a friend as an invite to
have a good long chat over a cup of coffee or tea. 

I liked the dark brown background (reminiscent of a good cuppa) and then found some patterned paper and cardstock to match up.  The tea tag was in the die cut set and just needed a little embroidery floss to give it some oomph.

My other project is a canvas one and I needed more time, so I'll probably upload it in the next day or two!
(This is like those tv shows where you wait the whole hour only to see "to be continued", but I think it will be fun and worth it to check back)

See?  It's coffee colored to start with.


Add your CUPPA right here. And don't be shy, add to your blog and join in on the BLOG HOP.

Woo Hoo, I'm first!! That's what comes with having three days off in a row. Thanks for another inspirational prompt this week, ladies, you never fail to make me step outside my comfort zone.

Girls, I just made a whole altered paper bag book about cups of coffee and coffee in general... didn't take a photo before I gave it to my good friend. As she was gone for the weekend I didn't want to break into her house and take a pix of it on her coffee table! I would have had a dynomite submission for this...maybe I'll grab a shot next time I'm at her house and show it later! LOL
