Morning Cup

This Gift Pocket Wallet was designed by Erica from Pink Buckaroo Designs. I was surfing the Internet for some inspiration for the Morning Cup Stamp Set and came across her fantastic tutorial!

Hubby was at work today so I enjoyed an afternoon of crafting. I think we're going to see a movie at C Max tomorrow as we both actually have the same 'day off'.

A few people have wondered how I get so much 'crafting' done ... the answer is simply this ... "I'm married to a shift worker".

Morning Cup Gift Pocket Wallet

I enjoyed getting out the Aqua Painter for a bit of watercolouring.

Thanks, Jeane, for the Early Expresso Striped Grosgrain Ribbon!
(I think it would have to be my favourite ribbon from the IB & C)

An Inside View

A Bit of Paper Piecing using Elegant Soiree DSP

This was made as a 'Get Well' card for a friend who is recovering from major heart surgery. I hope she likes it. She's more of a tea drinker than a coffee addict like myself!

I'll have to make another one and adapt the 'pockets' to fit my favourite coffee bags inside. Maybe for the next Stamp Class. Any takers?

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set: Morning Cup, Take a Sip (Wheel)
Card Stock: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede
Ink: Basic Brown, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Early Expresso, Crumb Cake
