Espressing My Thanks!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday! I have a jillion things to do, but when I saw today's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS, WT209, I knew I wanted to play along!! The challenge, Going Green, was to use something green on your card, or something I did both!!

I used this SUPER fun (and totally "me") set from There She Goes, Let's Get Together!! As you may have guessed from my blog title, I LOVE coffee...specifically Starbucks, so this was a must have for me!!

I stamped my cup in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice White Cardstock and added a shadow with a Copic Marker. I stamped the center "sleeve" onto Kraft and then crimped it, cut it out and added it to my cup! My recycled item is the stirrer in the cup, which conveniently came with my current mocha latte that I am sipping as I type this!!

I wanted to try and keep a natural look to my card, so I used some Rope Twine and just knotted it! I added some piercing and instead of brads, I stamped the little boxes down the side (you know, the ones they check off for the # of shots you want, decaf, flavor, etc...). I also crimped my horizontal Kraft panel!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
