Cup of Cheer

Hi friends!  It seems December keeps marching on and it's already time for another Mojo Monday sketch!  This week's sketch was submitted by Carole Burrage and is perfect for keeping things simple, or for dressing it up a bit more like I did.


I had the Delightful & Delicious set out on my desk because I wanted to make a little something to go with a gift card to a local coffee shop.  The sketch seemed like the perfect excuse to paper piece these cute little coffee cups, so I just went with it!  I had my heart set on using the sentiment "have a cup of cheer", but I couldn't find one in my stash, so I created one on the computer, printed it out and added as a little sentiment flag.  To dress things up, I added a bit of washi tape, a border punch and some sweet little jingle bells.  The finishing touch was a bit of stardust stickles swirls in the coffee and then a zigzag line down the seam binding to match the chevron washi tape.  Super fun and perfect for tucking a little gift card inside.

I hope you're having a fabulous December and can find a little "me" time this week to share your take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Wow Julee, so many details I enjoy about this card. Great stamps - I will now have to add this little set to my wish list! ;) Love the bells, and the sentiment - a great reminder that custom words can always be made with just a few clicks and a print. Have a great day!
