Hello and welcome to the November edition of Coffee and Cards With Celeste and Deb! Can you believe Thanksgiving is past us and we are less than a month away from Christmas? I can't...this year has just slipped on past me. This month Deb and I thought it fitting that our theme should be "gratitude!" To create my card I started with an A2 card base made out of Stampin' UP crumbcake cardstock. I then cut a panel slightly smaller than the base and stamped the rick rack border from the Hot Off The Press Stamped Stitches stamp set using Memento ink in rich cocoa. I then stamped the floral vines from the Stampin' UP Thankful Forest Friends stamp set onto the card. I stamped the sentiment from WPlus9's Pretty Patches: Pumpkin stamp set onto the card and then stamped the pumpkin onto a separate piece of crumbcake cardstock using memento inks and die cut the image using the coordinating dies. I added it to the card using some foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP for a ittle extra dimension and that completes my card.
This month we thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway. Here is what I have for one lucky winner!
How We Roll stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, a "create" die from Taylored Expressions, and a mini cube of Delicata ink in White Shimmer!
As for my coffee choice I opted for a large iced Peppermint Mocha latte from McDonald's. I'm training for a half marathon in April and did a long, tough 11 miles this morning, so this seemed like the perfect way to cap off my run!
Now be sure to pop on over to Deb's blog and check out her fun cards and what fun goodies she is offering for a giveaway!
