How've You Bean?


My attempts to complete a CAS-ual Fridays entry before 10pm on a Wednesday night continue to be thwarted.  I was called in to work last minute yesterday and so lost my most productive crafty day of the week.  I did manage to get a card made this afternoon though so I am squeaking it in at the last minute once again!  This is the first time I've used that Paper Smooches coffee cup although I don't know why I waited so long.  I love it and it's so perfect for paper piecing!  I have no idea who makes those fun patterned papers as they came in a grab bag that I bought.  I especially love the orange sheet and wish I had more!  The sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs' Coffee & Tea Set.  Simon Says Stamp is having another Anything Goes Challenge - sponsored by Paper Smooches no less - so I'm going to enter this over there as well.  I really could use a gift certificate!  :D

Such a fun card! The orange is perfect for the cup, and the brown one is very cool, too. And if _I_ don't win the SSS gift certificate, I definitely hope it's you. ;)
