WHAT'S BREWING MOM?...having a cup of coffee at the cutting cafe

but first of all:
Happy Mother's Day!
i should be coming back home soon from boston from getting my son back from college. 
it is my greatest gift of them all.
hope you are having a great day too!

this is my second project for 
and we were asked to use the coffee shaped card cutting file
i just did not use it as a shaped card but as a tag.
 this jar was given away as a small appreciation gift for mother's day to one of my sweet neighbors.

What's brewing?
2.75 inches tall 
so super cute!
(the colors are darker than it is showing on this photo: the brown is darker and the blue is a darker baby blue)
you all know i do not own a cameo or mtc or anything like it so i cut by hand and this cup was easy to cut.

here you can see the re-purposed glass jar and the band i cut to embellish it.
the "what's brewing" sentiment and heart also come with this file. 

 here you can see the coffee beans inside the glass jar and a bit of embossing i did to that red strip.

below i linking the info to the file specific page and also added what this cute file comes with. 
i had fun working with this file. i used the pdf version of it and all the instructions to work with them are on the shop in case, like me, you are not too familiar with it. easy to use tough and if you encounter any problems along the way, regina is also just one click away.


thank you so much for stopping by!
