Everyone needs MORE than just a COFFEE BREAK!



COFFEE CAFE BUNDLE 

(a cautionary tale...of sorts) 

Okay, I admit that at first glance, I passed this BUNDLE up in the Annual Catalog.   But, I really couldn't get the sentiments out of my head.. 

Life Happens...Happiness is...



They are perfect, spot on, appealing, masculine and/or feminine,  occasion friendly...the list goes on.  I mean, this is a BUNDLE that you just want to make a card and send to a friend...JUST BECAUSE!   

BUT...
When the HOLIDAY Catalog came out and I saw the coordinating stamp set MERRY CAFE...I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!!

Additionally, the coordinating DSP, Ribbon is delicious as an iced frappuccino (you get my gist!).  
COFFEE BREAK DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (DSP) featuring Early Expresso, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Soft Suede and Whisper White coordinating inks and cardstock available on my ONLINE Store.

The designs are so yummy....I couldn't wait to use the DSP to make a rustic Christmas card with the CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS Bundle!  How's that for versatility!  

Coffee Break DSP and BURLAP Ribbon add rustic charm to the Carols of Christmas Bundle!



Here are more  fast and easy cards featuring the COFFEE BREAK Suite: 
Totally elegant...EARLY EXPRESSO, PEAR PIZZAZZ ink and card stock embossed with the HEXAGON embossing folder, CRUMB CAKE card stock and BURLAP RIBBON!

It's OKAY to let off some special steam when life happens!!!  Featuring ....GOLD FOIL, WHISPER WHITE, PEAR PIZZAZZ and LINEN THREAD...see below for more information on products available on my ONLINE Store. 

My favorite classic and endearing sentiment on this card featuring WHISPER WHITE, EARLY EXPRESSO and the COFFEE BREAK DSP on BURLAP and wrapped with the 1/4" COPPER TRIM!
