  79. I would not have thought of using a coffee pot and coffee cups and saucers for a Christmas card. That's called thinking out of the box and boy did you! My mom loves hot coffee in the winter. We live in CT so it gets cold in the winter. Right now it's snowing. She would like this card but she would say it doesn't remind her of Christmas. I think it does or at least winter anyway. My sister loves hot chocolate but the natural kind, not the kind you can buy in the stores that are loaded with chemicals. My sister would love this as a birthday card. Can we stick a candle in the cups or the pot? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  80. What a great card for the coffee lover! That image you chose is just fabulous and the colours are striking. Love it!!
