Thanks a latte!

First and foremost - I would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the men and women who have, do and will give of themselves to protect and serve this country. We honor you on this Veteran's Day (and every day!)

Now.. on to the card. I picked up this stamp set (Art Impressions) at Archivers during Scrapfest. It's just the perfect card/gift card combination!

The coffee cup is paper-pieced and attached to the kraft layer. Once attached, I cut a slit at the top of the cup (under the *cover*) for the gift card to slide into.

The insulated wrapper is actually a wrapper from Panera. I love the texture it gives the card! (that idea is from my friend Bevie Pearl. She's a genius!)

The papers are from Echo Park and My Minds Eye.

I'm off to make a big pot of soup. I love holidays!
