~ Peppermint Latte Thanks ~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you all are having a good weekend.
We went to a fundraiser last night for a local policeman who was shot and killed when responding to a domestic violence call. There was a significant amount of money raised for the officers family. It felt really good to be a part of it.
Lots of local companies contributed in a big way to the fundraiser. In addition to having a great pasta and meatball dinner there were lots of donated prizes to be won.
And guess what? I won 4 tickets + a parking pass to a Pittsburgh Panther basketball game in February. I was so excited when they called my name. My hubby & I love going to the games but tickets are hard to come by, if you don't hold a season pass. Now we just have to decide who to take along with us.
Today, I am working on getting my Christmas decorations put away. But, I thought I would take a little break and do a blog post. So let's get started on some details of this card.
I created this one for the color challenge #616 on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and my color trio was dapper denim, melon mambo and pear pizzazz. Optional was something new - a new year's card, new die or stamp or a new technique. 
dapper denim, melon mambo, pear pizzazz
I have something new on my card with the CottageCutz Peppermint Latte die and the Stampin'-Up thankful thoughts stamp set. I needed a thank you card for a gift I received for Christmas that was coffee themed.
My layout is from the MojoMonday #478 sketch. It worked well to show off my image as well as the sentiment.
My background striped panel is designer paper from the 2016-2018 in-color paper pack from Stampin'-Up. I cut the image and sentiment panels with the stitched rectangle and stitched circle dies from CottageCutz.

I used dimensional adhesive to lift up the cup a bit from the white panel. Just some added card interest. The sentiment is stamped in dapper denim ink from Stampin'-Up. To complete my card I scattered some die cut melon mambo hearts.
Well that's it for me for today. Time to get back to the packing away of my Christmas stuff. So until next time.........God bless.
