Thanks a latte...

So I love to make cards...for everybody else it seems, because when I need a card for a birthday or thank you I never have one, I've given them all away as gifts. I decided I was going to sit down and make myself some thank-you notes; GQ must have known I needed some crafty time because after our afternoon at the pool he decided to nap for me! YAY! The Thanks a latte sentiment is so perfect for me, because if you really know me, you know that I loves me some coffee!

I found this card while blog surfing. I just loved it and had to CASE it! If you go look at that card you'll notice that it was actually a CASEd card from this one. Both cards are could I not try to do the same? Thanks for the inspiration Beth and artystamper!!

I really love my final product. About 1/2 way through I was second guessing my colors, but they are some of my faves, how could I not like that? After it was all together I knew I made the right choice. I've been sticking to my crafty plan of not buying any more paper and using all my scraps up, which I did for this set of cards. It felt so good to almost deplete my yellow scraps and make a small dent in the green. Still have lots of scraps left, but I'm on my way to at least making the pile 1/2 it's original size.

Have a good one!
