Curtain Call: Love with a Cuppa Cocoa

It's time for a new challenge at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  Stacey, our wonderful leader, picks all of the graphics.  Doesn't she do a fantastic job??!!  This is no exception...it's simple and sweet, and can really go in a lot of directions.


I'm seeing cocoa or chocolate, I'm seeing mugs  whether they be cocoa or coffee, I'm seeing colors and a rustic theme. And that's the direction that I went!

Wood You Be Mine

I was also heavily influenced by our sponsor - My Favorite Things Stamps.  The LEAD for the Curtain Call Challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate!  



I happened to get this set in a recent order - it's Wood You Be Mine?  I used two of the "wood" shapes along with a fun sentiment.  I was going for the rustic look of the inspiration photo.
Be sure to check out all of the design team inspiration over at the Curtain Call blog.  Then play along!  I look forward to seeing what you create.

Rustic's my thing and I also love puns so this card is perfect to me.

So perfect! Love that you used splatter to mimic the flecks on the mug! Such pretty twine too - and I LOVE the sentiment and how you paired it perfectly with all the wood grain! Awesome card!!

I once gave cups like these to a very dear friend of mine!! The same sort of handcrafted look and color, so your pic brings back sweet memories! :-)
Love the direction you took for your very inspirational card!!!
Love the colors and the (randomly???) spots of ink, the button and twine are the perfect finishing details and the sentiment you choose is sooooo very funny, perfect to give to a man, husband, wanna be boyfriend, not to sweet and definite clear and witty!!
Love the color behind the heart too, emphasizes it!
Small details, great effect! Perfect.
Have a wonderful sunday,

Bye,

Marjolein
