Coffee for a Friend


A friend at work has had a tough few weeks. Her two sons aged 20 and 16 were involved in a head on collision. Thankfully all involved walked away from the accident but it shook her to the core.

I decided to create a card to give her with her morning coffee.

I have used stamps and dies by CAS-ual Fridays (Cup of Coffee & Coffee Talk). I also used a stencil by Memory Box called Rings & Puddles and a texture stamp from HLS Mixed Media (can be purchased here).
I die cut the coffee cup twice - once with white card and once with patterned paper. I glued them together so it was more sturdy. I did the same with the die cut coffee word.

I was inspired by a card I found HERE

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Simon Says Stamp (Food and/or Drink), STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge (Anything Goes), Sparkles Challenge (Use a Stencil), The Unicorn Challenge (Anything Goes), Use Your Stuff (Tic Tac Toe - Circles | Your Favourite Colour (Blue) | Design Paper)

Thanks for popping in today :)
