Over Coffee

Hello and good morning!

How is your week going? I'm still working to shake this little bug that I have caught, but I am feeling much better. Today I have some Verve goodness to share with you - I wanted to play along with this week's Viva la Verve! Sketch Challenge.

Maureen Plut is bringing us this week's fabulous sketch:

Here's what I whipped up with Maureen's fun design:

I think this Better With You coffee set is so much fun.

I started my card by die cutting a circle from cork patterned paper. I cut the circle in half and stamped each with the coffee rings image and adhered it to my card base.  The sentiment panel was first stamped with the java text repeatedly to create a background design.  I stamped this off on scratch paper first so the ink wasn't so dark on my card.  I used the cute little coffee mug this time, paper piecing it for a pop of color.  A little twine bow and button finish it off.

Won't you join us for this week's Viva la Verve! sketch challenge? You can link your creation here in the VLV Splitcoast thread. Be sure to check out the VLV Master Challenge Thread where you can get all the details on how to be eligible for Verve's monthly prize!
