Canadians love their coffee! I have now lived in Canada more than half of my lifetime. I have to do what the Canadians do -have their daily cup of joe. Like anywhere in the world, the "invasion" of American Starbucks is inevitable.
BUT when it comes to things distinctively Canadian, our Tim Horton's coffee (also known as "Tim's" or "Timmy's") has always been a staple. The last time I went to Tim's for my morning fix, I noticed the vintage image on the coffee cup. It's retro, home-spun, and warm -just the perfect image for coffee lovers. Then my "A-ha" moment came...why not transfer these images onto CARDS!
Both cards were made from the same cup!
I plan to mail these to a Canadian friend who now lives in Hong Kong. I sent her two cans of Tim Horton's Coffee this June. I think she will love the cards!
ADDED note: I used the cup that I drank and washed it and dry. THEN I cut up the images out for my cards. The material from the cup are so sturdy! They are perfect for a card. I think I must do this on a regular basis now!
