Dueling Darlings-Coffee!

The Dueling Darlings hostesses this month are Terry L (Dazzlers) and Tami (Divas). They chose the  theme of Coffee!  That will make quite a few of our duo team so happy!  I am a tea drinker, but I certainly have many, many friends that I can send a coffee card to.

 This particular card will be added to the Splitcoast Teapot Tuesday challenge.
An amazing act of kindness and compassion on our recipient's part and we want to pay it forward to her. Pixie Adams is a coffee shop owner in Oregon who temporarily closed her shop and redirected customers to a competitor coffee shop down the street after learning the owner of that shop had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Not only did Pixie close up her shop, she actually worked at the other shop for a day to help raise money for the shop owner and his family.

You can read more about this story here:

 And, my 2nd card above.  Everything I used on the cards is from the kit : )  The stamps are Concord and 9th!

Here are the links for all of the Dazzlers and the Divas.  I look forward to seeing all of the different versions or interpretations of the kit!

Such great cards. I like how you used so many of the kit components to make them. The Oregon coffee story is a great one. One thing I know for sure is the Pacfic Northwest takes their coffee seriously! Good job this round.
