I used Diva Jen's sketch for my card and a wonderful paper pack by Teresa Collins called Santa's List.  Funny enough, I bought it in one store and then a week later bought it in another store because it caught my eye and didn't remember that I already had it.  Guess it proves I like it LOL!  I used the latte cups from Holiday Treats, one of the wonderful sentiments from the set, and one of the snowflake images on the tan panels, though it is really hard to see in the picture.  The hearts on the cup and by the love sentiment are the ones left over after using the Scalloped Trim Trio heart die.  The tab is the end of one of the dies from the Flag It die set.  Going to add a gift card to Starbucks to the card and use it as Christmas gift for a friend.

I do love this fun card, Marisa. Great dies and papers used.

I had to smile about you buying doubles. When my sis does that, I get the 2nd purchase...dies, punches, stamps. Ha
That's a load of fun.
