I'm not a coffee drinker, but that doesn't keep me from making a card for my friends who DO drink coffee.  Here's my card for today's set, Java Time.  For the front I stamped the smaller cup three times -- in colors taken from my patterned paper.  After cutting them out, I made a slit in two of them and stacked them together.

For the inside, I used a Lucy Label Pop-Up die from Elizabeth Crafts for a bit of interest.

I made a second card using my Circle Flip-Its die from Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix.  The birthday greeting is from another MFP set, Bearded Iris.

Please check out the cards made by the rest of the MFP team.

Here's the Design Team for today:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
