In case you missed it on Day 1, I have a cute candy giveaway!


Today I am sharing (yes, you guessed it!) another Coffee and Cats Pocket Letter! Can you tell this is a favourite theme of mine hehe?! I am hooked on these Pocket Letters!  I even included a little shaker card! To read more about the origin of Pocket Letters, see here. They are fun to surprise your friends, and I like to add lots of crafty goodies in the back pockets!
