Thanks a Latte!

Coffee of the Day - Sweet Potato

Crossing another card off of my 'honey do' list, and of course this one was loads of fun to make! :)

Some very special friends of ours sent me a most delicious package of coffee a little bit ago, so I wanted to make a coffee themed thank you card for them. Out came a stamp I had not used in ages - one of the cutey Riley & Co. moose stamps.

papers are from the Basic Grey Hey Boy collection, sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Perk Up set (another from this great set is stamped inside), flowers are a combo of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, linen thread is SU!,  and wood veneer pieces are by Latina Crafter. a Starbucks coffee cozy was re-purposed for a bit of fun! :)

a word of caution with these particular wood veneer pieces - as cute as they are, they are VERY THIN. the first banner I used broke apart just from trying to put glue on the back. quite flimsy. cute, but not easy to use. for the bigger pieces, it's not a big deal, but tricky with the banner. I decided to use foam pop ups on this one, just on the ends, to minimize the amount of handling required. it still almost broke apart. I'm a bit worried about how it is going to do going through the mail, even with all of the bubble wrap I added. crossing my fingers. I would recommend hand delivery for the future.

Hope you have a great weekend! :)
