PPPR Coffee Maker Winter/Xmas TY Friend Card

Was happy when I found this Coffee Maker SVG file by Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. We have a Keurig machine. Hubby & daughter use the Keurig for coffee. I use it for hot water for my tea or hot chocolate. We use filtered water in it from our Brita pitcher which is the recommended and best way to keep it in good operating order. I also am the one that keeps it clean daily with the exception of my hubby does the annual cleaning with vinegar. Daughter works at StarBucks part-time so she is allowed to bring home 1 pkg each wk.

Have news about my daughter. She is continuing her Master's studies in Art Animation at University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) and received an A in her Summer class so she has a 4.0 GPA with all As (Spring 2016, Summer 2016) The best news is she interviewed with a company. GearBox, in Frisco, TX (not far from where we live) last Fri that had 4 openings and she was offered a position. It is an intern position but could lead to a more permanent position. She continues ( Fall 2015 - present) to work doing free-lance animation for a company, Levitate Media, in CA.

Added detail to the Coffee Maker. There are 2 enamel dots for the cup size buttons (which on our machine there are 3 buttons). Used foam for dimension. Used a stamp/die set for cup and stamp set for snowflake on cup & sentiments. Added a doily & a piece of Kraft Coffee Words cardstock for trim.
