Christmas Sweater Giftcard Holder Card - HA ChristmasSweater - CTMH WholeLatteLove

Click here for What's Happening Thurs 2/18.

After the week we have had here in N TX I'm not wanting more snow but decided to make this Christmas card with a Hero Arts Christmas Sweater die and mix in some CTMH Whole Latte Love stamp for a latte drink.

Used some inks to color background.































Mon 2/15 it snowed 4". I shoveled & cleared front walkway & sidewalk. Wed 2/17 it snowed more. Photo is of our house on Wed 2/17. Thurs 2/18 hubby shoveled and cleared walkway & sidewalk. Snow has melted. We are going to redo the landscaping of the front yard so we had a company remove the unwanted plants, etc. Good thing we had it done a week ago.

  2. We had 6 inches of snow - it snowed a bit today but did not really stick but the 6 inches are still there! LOL - nice coffee creation! I always like a coffee creation - the sweater is nice with the Let it Snow sentiment -

  3. Lovely card Melissa. Nothing like a warm sweater and hot drink in cold weather. I like that your Starbucks drink inspired the colour scheme of the drink inside the card. Thank you for entering the Use some Gold Challenge at CHNC.
