Hum I had to think for a minute as to what title I wanted to give this card...I thought about I LIKE ALL FLAVORS....YOUR JUST MY FLAVOR......but I didn't want to sound to FLIMSY...if ya know what I mean...so I stuck with the I'LL TAKE ANY FLAVOR..not that this isn't FLIMSY..oh well.....I couldn't resist not doing this challenge over at 365...the challenge was to use 10 different pattern papers on a card and this ICE CREAM from the ICE CREAM CONE SHAPED CARDS over at the CUTTING CAFE was perfect.. I have always loved this set...so................I used 10 different papers from just about 10 different companies...and the best part about it was that I used up some scraps...YEAH ME....I did enlarge the stamp at all...I just kept on adding more and more layers on top of layers...I then added a bit of Martha Stewart glitter to the edges....be sure to check out the other ladies projects for this challenge...SUPER DUPER CUTE...huge

Hello everyone, well I have had many request for a coffee set............so...I decided to do two sets...One is called GOT COFFEE and the other is a background colored stamp set called COFFEE BEANS...
On this card I used the GOT COFFEE? set....this is a fun set with lots of images...I used some fun Basic grey papers on this card...for some reason, I am so into yellow these days............I also made a cute little box using the CANDY BOX from the CUTTING CAFE...I think I will fill this with some coffee hard candy..If that wasn't enough, I also released a COFFEE CUP shaped card...my hubby is a true coffee lover so I decided to make a card for him........so.............NO ribbons and fussy stuff on this card....just basic and to the point....the inside reads YOUR THE CREAM IN MY COFFEE...
Well that is it for me...I am currently vacationing with my hubby and had a little time to post these projects...have a great night and Tuesday...hugs
