Coffee Anyone?

 Hi guys.
     I thought that I would put my post up tonight as I haven't been getting it done in the mornings. It must be due to our new (earlier) schedule.  lol..  The M&Ms are enjoying their classes so far, but Thursday Maddie was up at 4am with the flu and Mitchell soon followed at 5am with a fever and a very bad cough.  They were both very upset to miss school, but there was no way either one of them could have made it that day.  On Friday Maddie was able to go back, but Mitchell was only feeling worse.  As of today however he still have a cough and his soar throat isn't as bad and all the sneezing and fever have gotten better.  I am happy to say that they are both heading back to school in the am.  :O) 
     So lets get to why you are all here.  I was playing around with a couple of stamps that I bought when we went clothes shopping for the M&Ms in August.  This one was on sale for 50% off and I thought it was a very interesting idea for a stamp set.  It comes with directions that show you how to  make a card that you can put a gift card in.  Unfortunately I didn't have any gift cards handy, so I put my B&N member card in to show you.  Because I am actually sending this card to someone I made a little envelope to fit in the slot and then put a little special something in that.  Anyway you can see the idea.  I wasn't thinking however and signed the inside before I took my pictures, so I don't have the inside to share with you.
      I have to tell you that when I picked out the papers that I wanted to use to paper piece the coffee cup and sleeve I ended up using some gorgeous papers from a Halloween 6x6 stack that I also purchased on our trip.  I loved this paper pad, and now I am so glad that I purchased it as it turned out to be so versatile.  Even if it I hadn't used it for this I still would had bought it as for some odd reason I seem to be obsessed with getting Halloween stuff  this year.  I am just in the mood lately and Halloween really has never been my thing before now.  I don't know why I want it all this year. lmbo... Weird!!!
    Thanks for stopping by.  I hope that you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Monday.  Talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

The cup warmer part you check off what you want the order to say.

At this point you wouldn't have to make a card you could just attach it like a postcard, but I had more I wanted to say.

My homemade envelope.  The Thanks a-latte!  however is one of the stamps that comes in this set.  Love it!

This is adorable Lisa...I love that it's a g/c holder and a card, and how sweet is that sleeve with those cute sentiments on it!!
Wonderful card!
Good to hear the kiddos are feeling better and heading back to school, hopefully they won't have too much make-up work.

Glad the kids are feeling better and this card and idea are adorable! Love how you paper pieced the cup too, it really looks like it is from a fancy coffee shop. Too cute!

I have seen a lot of blogs in blogspot. What purpose do they serve? Is it possible to make money through blogs. If yes how?.
