Holiday Card 40 - Peppermint Mocha

Hi, everybody! It's Day 4 of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! The theme is Fall or Winter - plus Coffee, Tea or Cocoa, of course! There is so much inspiration over at the hop - I hope you have a chance to check it out!  Today I went with a coffee-themed holiday card!


My card was inspired by Verna's card here - it was so cute that I had to make my own version! The to-go cup and peppermint candy are from Krafting on the Download - Peppermint Mocha Chic (I won this a while back, thank you!).  The cute little gingerbread man is from an ephemera pack in my old stash.  I made a gathered strip with red crepe paper and backed it with snowflakes.  The buffalo plaid paper is from Carta Bella Christmas Delivery 6x6 pad.  Lastly I added a sentiment made with my Dymo label maker. There is no stamping on this card.

Cute photo alert!  Diana at DL.ART is having her 6th Annual Elf Antics Linky again this year! Maybe you remember my elf Eli from previous years - well, he's back!  I was taking a photo of our adorable cat Snowie - she thinks she's hiding when she sleeps with these white stuffed kitties!  However,  look who decided to photo-bomb us!  Eli, you are not a white cat!

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Thank you for letting me be your inspiration. I really love your rendition and of course, plaid and gingerbread men are always a "win" for me.

Kitty your card is lovely! The background paper is gorgeous and really sets off your snowflakes and posh coffee. The little gingerbread man is so cute! Lovely work. Beautiful photo of Snowi (and Eli), hiding in full sight.
