Warm Wishes

Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a card I made for several challenges. I used the February Poppy Sketch by my sweet friend, Laura: code word: "coffee" from the current Addicted to CAS Challenge:

I think this is the most challenges I've ever combined into one card. HA! Here's my creation:

I stamped the sentiment inside the card. It says "warm wishes." The mug, the little heart-shaped steam curl and the sentiment are all part of the Hot Concoctions set from Paper Smooches. So cute!

I'll be giving this to my dear friend, Rosemarie, for her birthday in March. We've spent many hours chatting away over tea and coffee over the years, and I can absolutely see her loving a pretty little mug like this one.

Well...I'm heading to Boulder today for Subaru maintenance and while I'm there I'm going to check out the brand new Trader Joe's! So excited! Yep...CO just got their first three Trader Joe's stores---one in Boulder and two in Denver. Apparently, the grand openings of all three stores were C-R-A-Z-Y. Hopefully it's settled down a bit now. Anyhow...they're all located about an hour away from our house, so I figure I should visit when it's convenient (like today). Wish me luck!
