November Doodle Pantry Release

Okay, I confess - I am a coffee snob.  I won't drink coffee made from grounds in a can.  We grind beans as we go and we pay extra for the beans we like.  My son is worse than I am.  He roasts his own coffee beans.
Having said all that, I was excited with a new set from Doodle Pantry.  Great big mugs and really cute sayings  about coffee.
For this card I used the lined version but printed on one of the patterned papers that comes with the set.  I actually used  pieces of three of the patterned papers in this set.  To make the coffee rings on the paper and newspaper, I just rubbed ink on the bottom of a spray bottle I have on my desk and applied it to the paper.The sketch I used is the the #40 sketch at From the Heart

For this next card, I used one of the precolored cup images and then  super imposed a sailing ship from the Doodle Pantry set " Old Ship".  I will probably be sending this to my son sometime.  I think he will agree with the sentiment!
Recently I obtained a die by Memory Box which is three sizes of buttons.  I used it for the first time on this card cutting out brown c/s and one from an old dictionary page.  I like them because they are flat - great for mailing.

The sketch is Sketch Saturday.  It was a perfect sketch to change the card a bit, having the front smaller than the back.
I hoped you liked these cards.  I know you will LOVE the new release at Doodle Pantry so check them out here.
Oh, before I go, here is a pic of some of the images and sentiments in this set. There are more options than show up on this pic page.   Look at those biscottis  and beautiful papers- love them.
