I decided to make a fun little coffee gift set using the new digis French Blend and Cake Piece, as well as the Coffee Sentiments. I took a cardboard box left over from a Market Day purchase and painted it with acrylic paints. The papers are from the Basic Grey Sultry collection. The gorgeous buttons are from S2G! don't you see why I love these buttons?! I turned the cake into a wonderful chocolate raspberry torte by going over the squiggles with a pink glitter pen. I added some little black polka dots with coal shimmerz, which I also used on the fleur de lis on the take out coffee cup & litle dots there as well. I really would have pink take out coffee cups if I ever had my own coffee shop! didn't it turn out cute?! giggles! The box is wrapped in the most luscious velvet ric rac trim tied in a bow. It is filled with 3 types of single serve coffees: chocolate velvet, caramel truffle, and french vanilla. so VERY yummy! the card obviously matches the box. oh yes, the fork is painted with Hi HO Silver shimmerz. The box is 5" x 5" square.

Now on to the winner of the wonderful Shirleys 2 Girls blog candy................

the winner chosen at random by my hunny bunny hubby is................................................

p.s. I would like to add - please if you would stop to say a prayer for our fellow S2G teamie Deanne Burton and her family. They have just discovered that her MIL, Linda's cancer has spread, and the family is obviously devastated. We all know that God is the Master Physician and the bringer of comfort. May He hold them close in His arms of love - now and always.

Chris said...

I'm confused, I thought we could comment till tonight, but you are awarding the blog candy already, or I just misread.
Well, I'll still comment cause I want you to know I liked your creation. I'm more of a cake indulger than a coffee drinker.
but if they're passing out diamonds put me in the front of the line.

Justine said...

Great project Jennifer, I would love to indulge in a store bought flavored coffee. They really aren't into that sort of thing here in Sicily. Drinking a Cappuccino after breakfast hours is soooooooo TACKY but most of the Americans don't know that. LOL After breakfast it is straight Espresso......
