Warm Wishes!


Hi there! I'm sharing the card I made for the Fall Coffee Lovers bloghop. Precious Remembrance Shop is one of the sponsors so I thought I would feature Dyane's fabulous products!


I've used three sets on this card. The cup is from the Coffee Love set, the leaves and speckles are from the Fall Colors set (one of my favorites!) and the bus is from the School Days set.

 

My thought process for this card comes from two different sources. The first being bus stop moms! How many times have I driven by seeing the kids huddled together while waiting for the bus. And then there is the huddle of moms. Some in their bathrobes or PJs, some in sweats, some in their work clothes. Most of them holding their cherished cup of coffee!

The second comes from the memories of Sweet P and her mommy hitting the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru before school for 1st grade teacher mommy's much needed kick start of hot coffee!

I'm happy you took a minute or two of your day to spend it with me!

Hi Lisa : ) This is so sweet and it is exactly what I though of when I saw your card - bus stop Mom's waiting with their coffee cups to give their kiddos a happy send off!

I love the design and colors you used! No time at all when Sweet P will be in Mommy's class!!

Lisa, it is a work of art - caffeinated! Love all of your perfect details for Fall, and the little bit of road dust from the School Bus is darling! You've put your mixed-media panties on for this one, my friend - love it!!!

Precious, precious! I LOVE this so much, Lisa! You paired my favorite PRS coffee cup with some of my favorite colors and patterns! This is just delightful! While I never had to wait at a bus stop (would you believe in my whole life we could always walk to school?), I do cherish my coffee before I head off to work at a school! Off to Pin this card so I can refer to it for inspiration!
