It's also for both of today's challenges. A simpler version of Kelly's card, letting the cup do the honors. I did stamp a little bit under the cup, just a few tiny flower stamps, same as what is in the bottom corner. So what do seeds and a coffee cup have in common? Well this will go to someone who likes coffee and is a wonderful gardener: my aunt Joyce who is caring so beautifully for my Uncle Don in the worst of circumstances. She loves flowers and has unbelievable gardens. The inside will say: 'and a fabulous cup of coffee' and maybe I'll send a gc for coffee. I know she likes coffee, but it could be tea. I really like the TLC for today...I didn't even need to watch the video the second time around. If I had planned a bit better, this would have gone even quicker. Almost forgot, the cup is cut from a gel print I did yesterday with ai inks. As far as today's CAS goes, some of the colors I used for the print were new and the stamp set is new to me. I often buy CS stamps from previous owners. It was never used. Thanks for all these great challenges!

Great sentiment. It reminds me of a book I have which is almost impossible to read because of the way it's typeset and odd colours of font, but s total delight in terms of poetic prose and a love of flowers, and suggestions for unusual seeds for small and large gardens. The cup is beautiful and I love the tiny matching heart. I'm glad you had such fun with the challenge.

Beautiful take on Kelly's patterned cup card. Adore your Gel print and the wonderful colors there. I like the bit of floral stamping on it too. Wonderful sentiment and I am betting your Aunt will be thrilled with the whole package -- even if there isn't a gift card inside. LOL. Wonderful gift to a special person in your life.
