Nothing says 'good morning' like a spirit of praise, some sunshine and coffee!  I knew right away I wanted to use some yellow cardstock with a sun ray die and paired it with a couple sentiments from the Fill My Cup set!  I layered up a couple of the cloud images after coloring them with Zig Clean Color brush markers. 

For my second project, I wanted to make a couple of treat bags to give out as a random act of kindness with coworkers.  Who doesn't want to arrive at work and find a little chocolate in their mailbox?!  Using an envelope punch board, you start with a 5" square of designer paper and score the first corner at 2", next corner at 3", the next corner at 2" and the last corner at 3".  Round all corners then fold in flaps with exception of the top corner.  I added a 'belly band' of coordinating designer paper and decorated with paper pieced, die cut mug/cup images.  I attached a tiny tag with twine.  This is a great way to use up those scraps of patterned paper.  Enabler alert: If you haven't tried these Skinny Cow chocolates with a coffee flavored caramel filling...you really must!

The placement of the sunburst to the left of the sentiment looks wonderful...a refreshing, new way to use that idea! What blessed co-workers you have! They will be delighted to receive those goodie bags.

OOH I love the idea of the Skinny Cow bar! We get the ice creams over here but never seen these, how wonderful do they sound. Both your projects are great and thank you for the info on how to make the envelope.
