Have a good day coffee cup card made using the NEW Cricut American Alphabet cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all having a great week. My week has been very fruitful and I have gotten so much done that I am actually ahead on school work for once! Can you believe it? This never happens. Not because I am procrastinator, but there is just always too much to do to be a week ahead...especially near the end of the semester.

Today's card is made using the NEW Cricut America Alphabet cartridge that comes pre-programmed in the new E2 Cricut Expression. This cut was definitely one that called to me. I love a good cup of coffee and this cut just says cup of love to me!

I used Close To My Heart paper.
-
I cut the cup of coffee out at 3".
This stamp is from Papertrey ink.
The ribbon is also from PTI.
Thanks so much for stopping by! You guys leave the sweetest comments on here everyday! I feel very loved and I appreciate each and everyone of you! (((hugs)))

I will see you all back here tomorrow!

Have a great Thursday!

Karen Wilson said...

Oh I love this, Melanie! What a great card. I send cards to my grandmother as often as I can, as she's in a nursing home, and she would adore something like this. Thank you for the inspiration!!!

Donna said...

Glad you have time for that coffee! For me, it's tea! Each our own - he he he! Happy to hear you are ahead in your work, too. That's something in itself with all you do!

Thanks for sharing. Have a great week!

Blessings, Donna

Priscilla said...

Such a cute card. I love the coffee cup. Thanks for the daily inspiration. :)

Hilda said...

I have to have my coffee every morning, and this card would show someone who is a coffee lover, how much you care. Great card. Simple sometimes says more.

Kimberli said...

Great card, love the colors!! And I agree, you can't beat a good cup of coffee, so this card is perfect!

Katherine said...

Cute card - who could possibly have a great day w/o a big cuppa coffee to start it off? Congrats on being ahead in your school work. I don't know how you do it all!!!

Angela said...

Funny thing--I love the smell of coffee, but not the taste. I'm a tea girl. Regardless--the card is very "perky".

munchkin8 said...

I'm helping my grandson make a banner for his First Communion...please inspire me. I haven't had any luck using my Cricut to cut the Foamie sheets or felt. I changed the blade and pressure to #5, but still no luck. I may just have to resort to the old fashion scissors. What a bummer! But I still love your posts everyday.

Crhiga said...

Very cute card!! TFS!!!

angelbaby said...

Cute card...TFS! I'm happy for you to have caught up on your school work...I remember those days and fully understand the stress involved. How do you do it all? Somehow we survive, don't we...(((HUGS))) and prayers as you finish up your semister. ;)

I am one of those people that you don't even want to talk to until I had had a cup of coffee in the morning. I just don't function without it so I love this card. I am looking forward to seeing more of the E2
