CCCB32 a Cuppa...or two

Happy turkey day!
The bird is in the oven, the side dishes are done and I had time to make a card!
It has been a while since I have been able to play and I am so happy to be posting something new.  The City Crafter Challenge blog has a little "cuppa" challenge going on right now and here is what I came up with.
I am using some new goodies and others from my stash.  The inspiration for this friends and caffeine card is totally from the new Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 and I just LOVE it!  I used various papers from the 6 X 6 paper pad and I even stamped my fancy mugs directly onto this delightful teensy print from the Circa pad.  I love how small the print is and that it has all of the colours in the collection.  The stamp is a Stampington & Company that I had in my stash.  It is called "cup collection".  The burlap is cut from a basmati rice bag and I am using the inside of it without any printing on it.  I layered a beautiful Maya Road black on kraft precut doily and a red hand cut out and distressed the edges from the Cosmo paper pad.  The sentiment is from the Just Rite Caffeine/borders set that I stamped in Memento Tux. black ink onto a PTI cs scrap and used a Labels die cut.  The buttons are a hoarded T!m Holtz, a Jenni Bowlin and a beautiful black from U Italy with a funky texture.  I like the way this turned out and will be making more in this same themed style for a few friends that live far away and we can't "have coffee" on a whim.
