As I personally hop through all the linked projects, I will be pinning projects to a special



Remember, the link up is on THIS post along with all the information.  I also have the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post for easy hopping and linking up!

I decided that my first project wouldn't be a card but a giftie:


I'm smitten with these sweet 4 oz coffee cups!  They are the perfect size to pop some sweet treats into!  I received my first batch from my bloggie friend Tonya but have since ordered in, um, larger quantities.  For smaller quantities, be sure to check out the Bella Creations Etsy shop.   

I decided to maintain the white base, I did cover one in THIS post.  I wanted that Savvy Deer Head to be the star of the show!  I covered the antlers with glossy accents and dumped Stickles dry glitter onto it.


So today, my giftie to one lucky coffee lover is

Evalicious



Truthfully, I was thisclose to keeping this set.  I should have bought 2, what was I thinking?!

Anywho's, this is open to all my coffee lovin' friends, including my international ones!  Commenting to stay open for the Wake Up Clear Stamp Set until Sunday, December 14th @ 11:59 pm pacific.

I'll definitely be back with more coffee projects this week!
