Mass production Thank You cards

As one of the room moms for Kathryn's class, I am responsible for making thank you notes for the parents that donated to our gift basket fund raiser (our basket theme "Coffee Lovers"). I mass produced 13 of these 4"x4" cards.

After they were finished, I had this conversation with Doug:
Me: "Sweetie, do you think the parents will like this card or toss it aside?"
DH: "It's cute. Why are there lips?"
Me: "That's a coffee bean."
DH: "Oh. I guess I'm not used to coffee-themed cards."

This afternoon my parents came for lunch. I had an identical conversation with my mom.


I used CTMH papers and cs except for the SU chocolate chip cs (embossed with CB swirls). I paper-pieced the coffee mug. I stamped in Memories black ink, except for the lips/coffee bean, which is in choc. chip ink. I colored in the "coffee" with an SU chocolate chip marker, then used Diamond Glaze. It's hard to see in the pic, but I distressed all layers with chocolate chip ink.
