Birthday: Mustache with You Da Man



A fun card.  I have had all of the components that made this card for quite a while, but I have never used them.  I really like Lost Lagoon with Basic Black for a striking color combination.

Cup of Cheer: Take Life One Cup at a Time


Even though this looks like a one layer card, I put one 4.25 x 5.5 layer on the card base; I prefer a stiffer card.  The stamps A cup of cheer and Take Life One Cup at a Time are clear stamps; I do not know the manufacturer because I found them at a garage sale.

Early Espresso
