"Anytime is Bean Time"

The first thing I do after I get up in the morning is have a cup of coffee. A BIG cup of coffee! We were gifted a Tassimo one Christmas by one of our sons. I drink the "Gastown Grind" like a true Canadian, and my husband drinks the bolder Gevalia. We LOVE our coffee. I'm not one for Starbucks or Timmy's on a regular basis. I'd rather go home and have good coffee. Lolol---

Anyway, this coffee card was a natural for me. I used the paper coffee cups digital from my Etsy Shop, and made up a sentiment to go with it. I am offering the sentiment for free below. 

I used Graphic 45's Le Cirque Collection designer cardstock for this card. The flowers were some I had in my stash.

This card will be available in my Etsy Shop for purchase! 

And here is the free sentiment. Many of you probably already have a coffee cup or mug of some kind you can use with this sentiment. You know the drill, just click and save it.  Enjoy! 

Have a great day everyone! 



  1. Thanks for the freebie Carmen - I can see myself using that sentiment for my Son in Law as he is a big coffee drinker!
