Coffee Lovers Holiday Blog Hop

http://tsurutadesigns.blogspot.com/
Oh COFFEE - just the thought of it brings a smile to my face.  So I wanted to do a fun holiday card that highlights - just that - COFFEE!  For my card I chose to use a cute little coffee stamp that my daughter, Heidi, carved.  You can see the blog post about it HERE.  And you can check out more of her great work at www.stampinking.blogspot.com
I stamped the cup she carved several times in green with special red cup right in the middle - that I made it the "STAR" of the card - get it - the STAR! I then stamped the great little saying from Stampin' Up's Perfect Blend set, added a couple cute holly leaves and colored gem berries and I'm ready to relax with my own cup of coffee.  Enjoy!
Sooooo - do you wanna win some fun stuff???  I'm giving away two packages of SU's glimmer paper - one package silver - one package gold - perfect for your holiday creations Christmas through New Year's.   
To have a chance to win - just be sure to leave me a comment (and leave some contact info) no later than December 14, 2014.  On December 15th I'll draw one lucky winner from all the comments submitted and contact you to arrange delivery.  Only one comment per person, per day please.  Good luck to you! ~Maureen
