CASology 109 - Java


This week's CASology Cue Card is Java!



This week is extra exciting because my daughter, Kate is Guest Designer. The only problem is that neither Kate (she's 11) nor I drink coffee. We don't really 'get' coffee. So we were a bit stuck. And I have a confession, I think in the end Kate made a more 'Ardyth' card than I did for this one!

I decided to strengthen my 'java' message by using coffee colours - espresso, latte (ok, it's kraft) and cream. I paper-pieced the holder on my cup. Both stamps are from an old Hero Arts set.

Now it's your turn. Before you go, check out the inspiration from the other DT members:

I don't know you made a pretty convincing coffee card;) I love the offset design Ardyth!

You don't drink coffee?! Wow! This is the perfect coffee card, though, for someone who isn't a fan!

If you hadn't told us otherwise, I'd say, gauging by your amazing card, that you're full-fledged coffee drinker! Love this!!

Ardyth, you and Kate both did a great job for not drinking coffee! I love this older Hero Arts set...your coffee actually looks piping hot and strong! Well done!

This is a fabulous card Ardyth! I love how you used this stamped coffee cup. I'm not a coffee drinker either and do not get the fuss over coffee at all. lol I really loved Kate's card too, she was very clever in the way she made it and using that wonderful sentiment! Hugs, Brenda

The bold espresso colored border really caught my attention and I LOVE the sentiment. Terrific JAVA card!

Your coffee card looks very inviting! I love that the sentiment reads what's perking and that your cup is just peeking from the edge! Wonderful and clever design Ardyth!

Both your and Kate's cards are great. (My husband and I don't drink coffee either, and neither do our sons.)
