Got Coffee? Cards for a Cause and Cutting Cafe DT Search

One of my most favorite things is enjoying a really hot cup of good coffee.  My DH makes the coffe in our house.  He's so good at it, I don't even attempt it unless I'm forced into it when he's out of town.  

The Cutting Cafe has two brand new sets.   The Coffee Cup Shaped Template and the huge Got Coffee? printable stamp set.  I colored in some of the images on this linen textured DP with marker.

Aren't those cool images?  You can see what some of the other designers have brewed up here as well.
This second mug is for today's combined Color Challenge/Teapot Tuesday challenge Bashful Celery Melons (CC261) Cards for a Cause. You can read the story about Lindsey, the young woman  behind the challenge on the link.  You can email Cindy directly if you'd like to send Lindsey a card. 
This isn't Lindsay's card,  but since I was working with the Coffee Cup template, I thought I would make a really funky tea cup.  We were to use Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Mambo Melon.  This Basic Grey paper just happened to have all those colors in it.  We were also to use lots of stitching.  My little Sew Mini decided to act up for the first time but I did get lots of straight and zig zag stitching on my cup. 
Regina, the owner of The Cutting Cafe is having a Design Team Call.  You can read more about it here.
