Happy New Year 2024!

Played the Starbucks Holiday Game. Won several 5 stars reward stars. Completed all except for one (order using app, I tend to like ordering in person, using my personal cup and that way I get 25 reward stars & $0.10 off drink) challenges. For prizes I needed 1 more for all. Anyone else play and win anything? 


Starting off the New Year by making a Christmas card to help with the rush of the holidays.

Made a drink cup Christmas card.

Used CTMH To Go Cups die. 

Added some recycled snowflake pattern paper wrapping paper. 

Used some Kraft coffee pattern cardstock that I have had for quite some time and seem to be using up, first found it when I was on vacation many yrs ago in a Ben Franklin store and then found it in JoAnn's and not sure if it is available anymore. Anyone recognize it and know whether it is still available anywhere? Used crimper tool for texture. 

Stamped snowflakes on rim of cup lid. 

Used vellum and stamped Christmas sentiment (used heat tool on sentiment ink) on band which can be removed to see inside of card.
