Cuppa' Joe, Anyone?



I am an avid coffee drinker, if there is such a thing. :o) I love coffee first thing in the morning and then love a cup or two of decaf in the evenings. If I am near a Starbucks, I definitely stop in for my favorite: a Grande Vanilla Latte (sometimes Skinny, sometimes not ;o)) and with the holiday season I also enjoy a Gingerbread Latte with a Molasses Chew cookie....Mmmm, will have to go soon!

When Gina K. released this new set designed by Rupa Shevde, My Cuppa' Joe I was just loving it! I love the design of the images and the various sentiments and font of the sentiments. I ordered it first thing the night it was released and have been kicking myself ever since for not ordering another 2 sets to get the free set. Ggrr! I am so wishing I had ordered the Cookie set by Melanie. Sometimes I try to be so frugal, and then I regret it. :o((

For this card, I used the paper piecing technique and used the retired SU Dashing designer paper. The sketch is actually from the sketch challenge on SCS this week. I am pleased with how this turned out. Quite Christmasy.
Have a great weekend!

I love Starbucks too, In fact I am there almost everyday. They know me in the drive through. I am Venti Latte Gal. They see my car and know my order! Their pumpkin loaf is amazing too! LOL.
