Holiday Cheer

Hello, all!  Thanks for stopping by.  In case you don't know, there is a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop going on right now.
For the full details and a list of all the fabulous sponsors go to Amy Tsuruta's blog.  She's the mastermind behind the whole thing.  Now, I don't drink coffee, but I am surrounded by people that do.  I think non-coffee drinkers are in the very small minority, at least around here in Southern New England.  So, I created this cute little gift card holder that will hold either a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks gift card (it will actually hold any kind of gift card, but this is a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop)
  The holder is made out of an A2 sized envelop.  Then just decorate it to your heart's content.
 Don't you just love those paper pieced coffee cups?  I do!!  Here's a picture of the inside:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a Merry Christmas!!

I think you are in the minority not drinking coffee! Love the colors of your card and the layout. I like how you used the tag for the sentiment and put the coffee cups on top of it.
