Here is my Java Time Project:

I created a gift bag and gift card.  The bag is Kraft Cardstock using two 4 1/4" x 11" pieces of cardstock.  The bottom is scored at 2 3/4" on both panels and adhered together to form the bag.  I used an oval spellbinders die to cut an opening at the top on both panels, then stamped using the coffee rings stamps from the Java Time set.  Added wired ribbon, a doily, and the stamped Java Time stamp sentiment.  The gift card is a 3x3 card using Kraft and Vanilla cardstock; the image was stampd using Chery Cobbler ink and Memento Rich Cocoa ink for the sentiment.

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) All four winners will be announced on
