The winners will be announced on So Suzy's Blog and So Suzy's Facebook page on May 4th, so be sure to check to see if you are the lucky winner!

Now that I have gotten all the logistics out of the way, I have two cards to share with you.  If you know me, you know I love to make "coffee" related cards.  When I saw So Suzy had this coffee stamp released this month, illustrated by Tracy McLennon called "Coffee at Heart", and the newly released sentiment called "I Mean Coffee", which goes so well with the coffee stamp,  I just had to have it!  My second card, the sentiment I used is called "Procaffeinating" which was designed by Cornelia Wenokor is a free stamp for the month of April, there are only a few more days left this month, be sure to get yours!

Here is how I put my card together:

1.  My card is a top folding card, A2, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  I die cut the layer with a rectangle stitched die,
3.  I used a stitched die to cut the 1/2 circle out, I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black ink and adhered it to my card,
4.  I stamped the cups from the Coffee at Heart stamp set with Memento Black ink several times and cut them out with my scan and cut,
5.  I colored the cups with Copics,
6.  I stamped the cup holders with different design paper and fuzzy cut it out and adhered it to the cup, I also stamped the hearts on colored cardstock and fuzzy cut them out and adhered it to the cup holder,
7.  I finished my card off by adding some sequins.

For my second card.....

1.  My card is a top folding card, A2, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  I die cut the design coffee paper with a rectangle stitched die,
3.  I used a stitched die to cut the top solid cardstock, I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black ink and used foam tape to adhere it to my card,
4.  I colored the cup with Copics and added some glossy accent on the heart to make it stand out,
6.  I die cut a circle out with vellum, adhered it to the card and used foam tape to pop the coffee cut onto the vellum
7.  I finished my card off by adding some enamel hearts.
