Did you say Coffee? Or was it a nice Cuppa Tea?

Two new cards for you today both guaranteed to warm you up if you are still feeling the Winter chill ;)
Also this will satisfy my friends on both sides of the pond as I know my neighbors are all "Java" fans and my family back "home" wouldn't be seen without their "Cuppa".

Both cards have a few challenges too:

Coffee Card

Mojo Monday had a great Sketch
Totally Stampalicious want a Coffee themed project
Daisy Doodles had an Artists Choice (free week) as long as it was a Digi image
Double Dutch were having a Boys Only (or Men) theme
Crazy 4 Challenges also want a Masculine card
Crafty Catz want Something for the Boys
Creative Inspirations also want a Male card
One Stitch at a Time had a recipe of 1 Ribbon, 2 DP and 2 Brads

Card Recipe:
Image - Dustin Pike
Paper - All My Memories
Die Cuts - Spellbinders and Quickutz
Embossing folder - Sizzix
Border punch - Martha Stewart
Brads - Recollections for Michaels
Medium - Copic Markers
Rhinestones - $1 spot

Tea Card

Critter Challenge had a super sweet sketch
Crafty Pad wanted an Oval and at least 2 ribbons
365 Cards Day 13 had "A Whole New Dimension" as the theme where they wanted just a piece of the image popped up
The Pink Elephant had a Spring theme
Stampin B's want Spring or Easter

Card Recipe:
Image - Mimosa with Tea
Paper - My Minds Eye Where the Heart Is
Buttons - The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Die Cut - Spellbinders
Ribbon - American Crafts
Medium - Copic Markers

I stamped the hands and teapot twice and popped it up.

Now which brew would you prefer, a cup o' joe or a nice cuppa tea?
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
