Morning Cup Card

I saw this set in the new catalog and I wasn't sure if I liked it enough to buy it or not. It's not that I didn't like it, it was just one of those sets that are put on the back burner, not so high on the wish list.


It's always that big but that gets in the way! After making a couple cards using this set at last week's Shoebox Swap I am leaning towards getting it. It has potential for more "things" other than just cards. SO up higher on the wish list it goes! Plus the wheel that goes with it too!!! I do LOVE wheels. Maybe I'll start out with the wheel and then convince myself that I have to have the set now that I have the wheel. See how easy it is to work that need thing in??? LOL
Anyway, this is the card that I put together at the swap. This one was designed by Sandy. She has such clever ideas. I don't know if you can see it or not but at the upper left corner where the card stock is torn. We put a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock there and then tore them together. It gave it that nice dark edge on the top. What a fun idea that was. I think you can see it if you click on the photo.

The words read "a morning without coffee ... is like sleep" Too funny. SO with the (crooked) words on the card I would probably use it as a friendship card. Oh and with crooked words, ummm, all the more reason to get the set so I can redo that piece and get them straight!!! See how easy it is to convince myself I need that set???
It was a fun card to make, thank you Sandy for allowing me to share it with everyone here.
Thank you for visiting today,

Nice card!

I was leaning toward the wheel and the individual tea cup.

If you decide to buy this set, then check out they've got the perfect freebie sentiment to go with it. "You know you're addicted to coffee when instant coffee takes too long" Great card. Jaqui x
