Cocoa Thank You

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
It's the first day of February already. Hard to believe that January is in the history books. All of my to-do's didn't seem to get accomplished so hopefully in February.
Most of them revolve around my craft room. But, I also want to get our file cabinet cleaned out and in order. Then closing out 2017 on my Quicken account. I started in January but didn't get it finished.
Then comes the 2017 taxes. We did have someone doing our taxes for us but last year I went back to Turbo Tax. Since we can itemize any longer, it didn't make sense to pay someone to do them. I put all the info together for them anyway. And gathering that information and putting it on a spreadsheet usually took me 2 days. So I will gather the information and let Turbo Tax do the return.
Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created using the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #669. Robin was the hostess and she chose berry burst, daffodil delight, old olive and pool party. Optional was to add some sparkle.

I needed some thank you cards for gifts that I received from my Pre-School students. I thought a card that had somewhat of a coffee theme would work for some since I received several gift cards for local coffee establishments.

My card is using the SC678 layout from Splitcoaststampers.  Cathy was the hostess and she gave us a great layout for our cards. It worked out well for me.

My coffee cups are part of the CottageCutz Cocoa & Sweet Treats die. I cut them in daffodil delight and berry burst. Stamped my sentiment with the Love Letters set from Lawn Fawn in berry burst.

My background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "delightful daisy" collection. The bottom rectangle panel is part of the Year of Cheer Specialty designer paper also from Stampin-Up. It is shiny so I covered the optional and also with the wink of stella I added to the snowflakes.

I finished off my card by adding a few snowflakes to the top of the card. I did that to balance it out a bit.
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time........God bless.
