Holiday To Go Cup

Yikes!  I skipped yesterday!  Here's my sixth make for the Coffee Lovers Holiday Blog Hop.

It's been busy.  A trip out of town today included a stop at Starbucks to get the ugly sweater cozy.  I had my cup filled with Chestnut Praline.  It was delishl!



I used the template we worked with at my last craft club meeting.  I used an actual cardboard cozy to wrap around the middle.

The papers are Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Magic from my stash.

Here is the sample from club and what I had started there.  I always take pictures so I can remember what it's supposed to look  like when I finish the project at home.



I changed it up a little as I put white on the backside as well and also wrapped the cozy all the way around.  I added a Starbucks gift card.  This one goes to my brother-in-law.



Here's the completed insert.  I used a sentiment from that awesome freebie digi set given to us by Verve Stamps for this hop.  


I  HAVE BLOG CANDY FOR THIS HOP.  JUST LEAVE A COMMENT HERE.  NO NEED TO  "FOLLOW" ME UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO. LIMITED TO COMMENTS FROM THOSE LIVING IN THE U.S.A.
