CASual Fridays with Nora


I was delighted when my friend Nora Noll, of A Creative Touch, invited me to play cards with her, and CAS-ual Fridays!  I've long admired Michele's products - and that she even spells her name properly!  ha!

Nora gave me the choice of sets for us to play with - there was no denying that my love of  Hot coffee has been brewing for some time... and this little Fri-die and I had fun creating hidden messages.

 
 

 You may have noticed that I've stretched the mug die at bit, and they are a tiny little note card, attached to a card?  This is how they began:


Would you like to see how they were created?  Come follow me at IG @mfergu01 and send me a direct message... I'm happy to send you the instructional photos!

Thanks, Nora!  I can't wait to see your cards!  It was a blast hanging out with you - even if it was a virtual hang out ... and thanks to CAS-ual Fridays for making it happen!

Michele Gross said...

ohmygoodness! These are fabulous! I love that they open up and the big huge mug is genius!

Hahahahaha!!! Isn't that inside sentiment just the truth some days?!! What fun cards! Love the coffee mug note cards popped on top of your cards. The cards by themselves are great, but those mugs just add a little something 'extra.' You're so full of sass - and it's one of the things I love about you! Bev

Awesome! You are so fun and clever, Michele. Yay for finding a crafty kindred spirit! Love the sense of humor in the cards. Great use of the supplies and I'm impressed with the crispness of your dry embossing. :) Hugs!

You are so clever, Michele ~ It's no wonder Nora chose you to play along with her! Your little notecard mugs are so cute and I love how you played with the punny sentiments :) I also love your CAS designs on your cards and how your embossing on the 2nd card looks a lot like steam coming from that delicious cup of Joe! Once again, you've nailed it, my friend!!!

These are so cute and ingenious, Michele. The elongated cup holds the sentiment perfectly. I love the embossed background on the tall cup one.

You are so creative, Michele! Creating two different cups with one die is genius and even as a note card!!! Love the half striped background on the first card!

Of course Nora wanted you to be her special guest, you are the bee's knees! Your cards are simply marvelous! I love the frame on the first with the clean design. And the second...polka dots...this could make me a coffee drinker LOL!!

Sharron said...

Super fun and perfect with the die cut and embossing! Love that cup with the polka dots inside!
