Collect Moments

Start the day off right: the first cup of coffee is always the best, and I don't know if you noticed, but having it in a pretty cup makes it taste better too.

My daughter (who lives in another city) and I will often have a virtual cuppa together while chatting on the phone; a text will get sent to warn of the phone call in 5 minutes - just time to make a cuppa, get comfortable, and put the feet up!  Lovely!

I wonder how many moments of friendship have been spent over a cuppa?

I stamped the image on a scrap of smooshed card from another project, just enough!  The edge of the card is inked with a toning colour.

I definitely agree a pretty cup is needed to enhance the coffee experience, Carol! Love the floral patterned stamped over the smooshed colors. Thanks for sharing with us at CASology this week!

If a pretty cup makes the coffee tastes better, then this is one tasty cup! Your smooshing is beautiful. Great card and moments with your daughter. x
