One Last Christmas Card

 I saved the best for last!! I couldn't post this til the special person it was created for let me know she got it!! Now that I know she did I just had to share this!! I bought this stamp especially for my friend, Brenda. We share a passion for coffee :D



See the Java??
I also love playing with words and fonts so here's a close up of the sentiments on the front and the inside:


I swore last night that I was not getting on the 'puter for the next two days but I woke up at like 5am and couldn't go back to sleep!!
Hubby just poked his head in and said it's snowing! He's so happy!!
Merry Christmas!!
**Edit**
I got a couple of emails asking for the recipe and word art for this card so here goes:
Stamp: Whiff of Joy "Willow with Hot Chocolate". I think it's sold out at the moment but you could email Lora to see if she can get it back in.
Flourish Die Cut (now I can go to the 2nd floor to look as I've had my coffee and the dog is out playing in the snow..lol) - QuicKutz "Flourish"
Word Art - I make all of my word art in Digital Scrapbook Artist 2. There is a free version available here. If you are not familiar with this program it is amazing!! I own the full version but really the only parts I use are all of the stuff that is available in the free download.  It makes it so easy to manipulate, layer, text to curves and shapes, etc!! Love it!! Plus it has all kinds of free elements like backgrounds (papers!) and embellishments. You really need to try it!!! Make sure if you do get it to download all of the free digi kits... you will love them!!
Here's the sentiments if you want to grab them also:



The font is called Good Dog Cool and is available here.

I absolutetly love this!!! Your coloring is just beautiful!

Would you mind sharing where you got the stamp set/images? My friends and I frequent coffee shops all over the area in the summertime. I think this would make adorable cards for them.
