Coffee anyone?

Hello folks, things went badly at the weekend when I tried to mow the lawn as a bearing went in one of the wheels (booo!!) which meant I had to stop and find something else to do (yay!!!!) and this is what happened...


....a gift card










      With a pocket on the inside











                                                                          
   






 to hold a coffee bag (delicious!!)








I used my Precious Remembrance set again, stamped and paper pieced on some pretty paper from the Kitsch collection by Craftwork Cards. I actually stuck the beaker on with foam pads for dimension and shaded with Flexmarkers.

I love how this turned out. The inspiration came from these two challenges

Daring Cardmakers - Elemental Inspiration
Sweet Stampin' - Paper piecing
Love to Scrap #51 - Dots and/or stripes

You are going to be sick of me by the end of the week.

See you again tomorrow with another DT piece and another Challenge to get your teeth into!!
