First up in the spotlight today is a brand new set called Always Time.  As in there's always time for coffee or tea. {grin} Since the retirement of our A Cup of Life and Delightful and Delicious sets, I was feeling like we were in need of some new tea and coffee cups and kettles. So that was the inspiration for the set. I threw in a couple sentiments you may have seen earlier this year in our limited time Rise and Shine digital set, then finished off with some all new sentiments as well.



If you hopped along for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. you might have already seen this card I made with today's featured set and dies. I had a lot of fun coloring the kettle and adding in some fun little flowers and butterflies.
