To everyone: Thank you for your prayers and well wishes for my sweet reds. They are fever free and doing so much better today. We ventured into town for a little change of scenery and some fresh air. They're still coughing and tire easily but they are definitely feeling better. They're also back to fighting with each other and being sassy redheads....so I know they are getting back to normal. ;)
For my mother-in-law's birthday, I gave her one of my signature gifts....the pretty coffee mug with matching place and cloth napkin. She loved it and said that all of the girls at her office would be jealous. You know how important that coffee is at the office. :)
And that's why I like to make cards like this one. Everyone loves cards that have coffee or cocoa on them. They just evoke that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when holding a warm cuppa goodness.
For my card, I used Karen Lockharts Itty Bitty Cocoa and Cookies stamp paired with some sentiment words from Papertrey. I colored my image with Copic markers, adding some grey shadow as an outline. I cut and layered my image with Spellbinders Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle Nesties Die Templates. Tied buttons, patterned paper and a pretty ribbon finish off my card.
