Your Paper Coffee Cup Should Always Come With a Zarf

zarf is something that helps you hold a hot cup without burning your fingers.  Zarf is a peculiar looking word loaned from Arabic and originally denoted a metal holder for a drinking glass — which would be unwieldy to handle if it contained a hot beverage.

I know I'm just odd when it comes to words, but a zarf is a zarf.  

I printed out a coffee digi from Hero Arts (no longer available) and colored the cup after setting the sentiment of "Take a Break" on top of the zarf  on the cup in Word.  I colored with Copic markers and free hand cut the cup out, outlined in black and found an old Hero Arts card that was sold in Target years back.  I think it looks well on that background and I believe I even used the stamp that came with the card package.

It's very simple, but I rather like it.
