Sending You a Cup of Cheer



Day 5:  My Card for the Coffee Lovers Holiday BlogHop and International Tea Day - Sending You a Cup of Cheer


Santa left the shop, leaving Mrs. Clause and his elves in charge, to deliver some much needed coffee, tea and hot chocolate for those in need and ones consumed in this BlogHop.  So make sure you leave him a treat.  Santa also made sure, before he left Mrs. Santa and the elves, that they had a large supply of each of the drinks to energize them.   Santa was very thoughtful of the reindeer, and rather than take his sleigh, he would go by air balloon to give his reindeer a rest before the big night.  And this is how my card came about.

  4. Well I'm at my own card now. I ended up changing the glitter balloons to a better match of the colors of the decorative balloon...I just got my red glitter paper today and it was a much better match than the dark pink I initially use. Happier with it now.
