Just wanted to espresso my thanks!

Good morning! Today I am a guest blogger on the Everyday Cricut blog! I've been following Everyday CricutJoy, and Melanie for a long time, so I was ecstatic to be chosen! For today's project I just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to participate at such a fabulous blog!
I made a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card with Stampin' Up Early Espresso cardstock. The Very Vanilla layer was cut a 1/4 inch smaller and embossed with the Sizzix Texturz backgrounds #1. 
I used the Love you a Latte Cricut lite cart for both the mat and frame and the espresso machine. The frame was cut from my Gypsy at just under 4 inches. I used Stampin' Up Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Lucky Limeade cardstock for the cuts. I inked the edges of the frame with some Early Espresso ink. 
The stamp I used is from the fabulous My Creative Time stamp set Classy & Fabulous which you can view HERE. I masked out the espresso from the stamp, since it is already on the cut. :) I used some small Stampin' Up pearls to accent the frame and finished it off with a small twine bow. I just love this Chocolate Truffle twine from Trendy Twine! And with that, that's all for my post today!

But wait, there's also a
GIVEAWAY!

As a design team member for Emma over at My Creative Time, I am giving away some must have blog candy!! It's the Happy Hunting stamp set, courtesy of Emma over at My Creative Time!
This is one of the sets from Emma's newest release and is perfect for those Easter projects coming up! All you have to do is leave a comment both HERE and on the Everyday Cricut blog post and a way to contact you!

You can also head on over to my Facebook fan page for even more updates!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!

Jeanne, great card. Wish I had the cartridge that makes the expresso machine. But you inspired me to think of a way to make a thank you card for the coffee "maker" for our club.Thanks.
