Got Coffee

I am so fortunate to be part of the Sew Many Cards design team. It is one of the most incredible experiences I've had. Sew Many Cards has some of the most adorable images and I get to regularly use them. (I love it!!!)

I also have an opportunity to encourage others to use the Sew Many Cards images and to participate in Sew Many Challenges each week. (I love it!!! BTW... have you played along yet this week? The theme is Anything Goes. How easy peasy! Be sure to go to the Sew Many Challenges blog and check out the details.)

As a Sew Many Cards design team member, I also get to enjoy images from the companies that sponsor Sew Many Cards each month. I'm continually finding wonderful companies to enjoy.

The Cutting Cafe is one of the sponsors for April.

Regina Easter, the owner of The Cutting Cafe' offered a generous prize package to a lucky recipient.

Sponsor Blurb:

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.
Regina also generously gave me the Got Coffee image set so I could showcase some of her images. It is an amazing set with lots and lots of options for any coffee-loving paper craft. Check it out here.

Here's the card I created:

Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go fix myself a cup of coffee.
