...I just wanna dunk you in my coffee


Every time I read this, in my head, I hear it in Gloria's (Madagascar) voice. Love that movie. Love doughnuts also, but what I really wanted was a doughnut set with the correct spelling! It's not that I'm a grammar nut, it's just that my mother's voice will forever ring in my ears telling me not to use 'slang' as she put it. My mum wanted us to speak correctly...which I guess would also mean that she'd want me to spell correctly... so we're just 'gonna' ignore that 'wanna'... right there...

The doughnuts on my card are from the We Go Together stamp set that was released yesterday and  they were trimmed out with the matching dies.

I used the new stitched rectangle sets to make the panels and mats.


Neat thing about the two sets of stitched rectangles - they mat perfectly together giving a nice fine mat. I made up the bunch below when I was testing the dies - they'll be great for some future project. I cut the white card with the Scalloped stitched rectangles and the brown pattern paper was cut with the plain Stitched rectangles.

Each set of dies has 6 dies, all based around a 4.25 by 5.5 inch card size
(this is the format I use most).


Our Coffee Bag of the day was made in patterned paper to match the card - I wanted to pop edibles in there - some little chocolate fingers for dunking in your coffee (M&S) and so I wrapped those in cling film before popping them in the baggie.



Did you enjoy the release yesterday? (scroll down) Anything you especially liked? let me know! I'm looking forward now to see what the DT come up with!

Right, back to the stock room for me! Nice chatting with ya!
