The perfect blend.....

One of my good friends husbands asked me to make a 
card for her recently.
He recons her favourite occupation is drinking coffee!!

So I tried to inject a little romance into the theme.

I have used We R Memory Keepers papers.
Paper pieced with foam pads for dimension.
Also fussy cutting to create embellishments
to tie it all together.

I'd like to share this with
Catch the bug challenge - March Anything goes
Stamp and Create - Paper piecing
paper and Such design - Paper piecing


  1. Hello Claire,

    What a lovely card for your friends hubby to give her! I did giggle at his feeling that she was a professional coffee drinker!!

    Have you seen my post today?!

  2. Such a bright and happy card Claire, I think I might have the same occupation as the lady the card is for, I'm something of an espresso freak. Need 2/3 each morning before I'm human.
