Coffee, Coffee, Coffee


Nothing says the start to summer fun more than the end of the school year and that means making the kids' thank you cards for their teachers.  Their school has been so supportive but it means that I need six thank you cards so I'm trying to keep it simple.  Since one of them is a true coffee addict, I thought this would be perfect.  I pulled out some NBUS (Never Been Used Stuff) from My Favorite Things, the coffee to go die and the stamps are "Perk Up".  The apple is from MFP's Calendar set.  Even though as a teacher I hate the stereotype, it works.

I broke open some Smokey Slate for the background.  I'm loving the soft neutral.  I think I found a new favourite.  It's not as stark as white but still works well for CAS.  Now only 5 more thank you cards to create.
