Chocolate, Coffee, or Tea at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. :o) It's time for more fun at Deep Ocean Challenge and I hope you'll play along with us! The new challenge theme is Chocolate, Coffee, or Tea. There are so many sweet possibilities.

I opted for a travel coffee cup shaped card to send sweet latte love, as I have wanted to make one for quite some time.♥︎ It will soon be off to a beautiful mother whose daughter is battling a terminal disease. Every little blessing means so much to those in dire circumstances.
The coffee cup svg file is from The Cutting Cafe. I used Maja Design papers for a light and summery version. The papers except the lid are from Vintage Summer Basics, while the lid is from Vintage Baby. Every sweet drink I share with a friend is sprinkled with love. ♥︎
Naturally my coffee cup sleeve is covered in lace. :o) The sentiment and its die cut layers are from My Craft Spot (no longer produced). I filled the center with pearly love, each one reminiscent of a beautiful memory she will forever treasure.
The interior contains a gift card pocket to surprise the recipient with a blessing. This little blessing of a free coffee break is dressed up and filled to the brim with ruffles of love... just like the frilly fancy lattes so many love.♥︎

Be sure to check out the beautiful creations from my teamies. :o) Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day! (Note: The Vintage Summer Basics links are to the 12x12 sizes, whereas I mostly used the 6x6 pad. However the link is missing and I'm unsure yet how to add a product to inlinkz... hehe!)

  12. So, let me tell you that this would be one of those cups that I would never use because it's just too gorgeous and you know, something could happen to it. But were I forced to use it, it would definitely have to hold one of those very fru-fru drinks. How else could you do it justice? :-) It's absolutely gorgeous, Karen!

  16. Hi Karen! Sorry I've been slow to come here... work has been busy along with my home life stuff! I try to comment when I have free time.. but it seems to be getting less and less as the holiday approach... We have to get ready for the holidays at work so all hands on deck so to speak! LOL :) Your card is simply BEAUTIFUL!!! I Love the shape and the pretty lace! Is that a shaker in the center with the pearls? So neat if it is... the paper is so lovely and matches perfectly along that fabulous ribbon bow... You always make such precious cards... I'm sure the mom who will be receiving this will cherish the thought you put behind it for her... :) Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
