Morning Wake-up Card

Good morning, scrappers! My husband is Active Duty with the US Coast Guard. His schedule is a constant change, and it has turned him into quite the coffee addict. I decided to make him a thinking of you/ good morning card to remind him how much I appreciate all his hard work for our family!


I am entering this card for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Sunshine. I created the "sun" using canary cardstock that I cut out using a Spellbinders Nestabilities set. If you look closely, you can see the embossed ridge. I am new to using cutting dies with my Cuttlebug, but I really like them! The "flames" from the sun are from the new Fundamentals Gold Assortment. I cannot wait to show this new catalog to y'all! It is awesome!


The sentiment on the inside, as well as the coffee cup and donut, are from the Treats of Friendship stamp set. This set is currently available, and will not be retiring at the end of this current campaign. I have had this set for awhile, but hadn't found a chance to use it. This seemed like the perfect time!

Ingredients:

Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!

  3. Great card April...nothing like coffee and donut to start the sunshine...especially here in Arizona with no lack of sunshine. I admire a lot of your work and wish you luck on the challenges.
