TE Sneak Peek: Destination Cuppie

seattle cuppie

Welcome to our first day of sneak peeks for the July release!  We have Destination Cuppie up first; since it’s Summer vacation time, it’s just perfect for Cuppie to travel across the U.S. on his adventures!!  His first stop is on the Northwest coast, Seattle, WA!  Jessie did a great job illustrating these sets, you cuppie fans will adore them!  I used the Paper Loft Morning Rain papers, which I got at CHA, with the umbrellas, it’s just meant to go with this cuppie (maybe I should have drawn in some rain).  The thing is, is that it rains most days in Seattle, and on the 2 trips I have made there, I can attest to that but can still say it is a fun place to visit!  So many fun things to do – I meant to have some pictures from our visit to share with you but we don’t have access to them on our server at home *bummer*.  Pike’s Market is one of our favorite places, it’s rich in culture and you can get the freshest seafood and flowers there, it’s unreal!

Next on Cuppie’s stop is to the most expensive place to live in the U.S. San Francisco!  Having grown up in the Bay Area; this place will always hold a special place in my heart, so I can truly say I left my heart in San Francisco – I took for granted I would live around there for a long time, so there are a few places I neglected to hang out when visiting there, like this famous tourist spot with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background (I’m sure on one of our future visits there to see family, we will make it a point to get back there!).  In fact, on our trip last May for our nephew’s 1st birthday, we did a little geocaching around there and when I went to grab some photos of our trip, I realized I can’t find them even though I looked on ALL the sd cards I have – ugh!!  What is wrong with me not being able to get pictures I need when I need them?  Anyway, I have so many fun memories spending the day there with friends and family (many days I played hooky in high school to hang around there with my best friends) and of course, the nightlife – I used to LOVE going dancing on the weekends there!! I can’t forget all the rich culture, with fabulous museums and wonderful places to eat too – I just adored the different cultural areas: Chinatown, Japantown, Little Italy – there is something for EVERYONE there!

Now a little detail about my card since I rambled on about how much I LOVE the City!  I used October Afternoon Fly a Kite papers and the cardstock is from the June Key ingredients pack.  Ivory silk ribbon and cream glitter candy dots were used as embellishments, and Tim Holtz distress ink!  Here is a close up of the bridge, covered with red copic atyou spica glitter pen!
