Time for a Coffee Break!

Today I want to share my Cuppa Joe project with you.  It was really quite easy to make and although it will need a hand made envelope, due to the coffee pot handle, it will fold flat.

I finally decided to dig out my Cricut Expression.  I have to admit, it was covered with a mighty huge layer of dust.  But what's worse is that I even have some cartridges still in the store packaging, this one included.  I guess you would say that I just lost interest in it, until now.  Now I'm Cricut cutting out things like a mad woman.

I cut the coffee pot, cup and saucer using the cartridge From My Kitchen.  The cup is actually a tea cup on the cartridge but I simply folded under the base of the tea cup to make it look more like a coffee cup.  The card was made by cutting ovals and creating an easel style card. The patterned papers are from Teresa Collins, and the sentiment is from K Andrew Designs, the butterflies were fluttering around in my box of embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this little crafty coffee break.  Visit my blog, Needful Things, if you would like to see some of my other creations.

Happy Crafting!
