Big Birthday Wishes And Another Award

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. Today is my moms birthday. As I have said before she is very special and means the world to me. This year she wanted an MP3 player so she could listen to her books on cd so that is what my sister and I got her but I also wanted to make her something special too. One of her favorite things is coffee. Lauren Meader's new release this month was coffee themed which turned out to be perfect timing. I also remembered seeing this post from Dawn McVey and decided the To Go template would be the perfect packaging. This is what I came up with.

As you can see the coffee cosie fits perfectly on the cup! It will also fit on Starbucks cups as well. Here is a mini card I made a card to go with it.

Everything was done digitally except the sentiment. The cup image is from Lauren's new Fancy A Cuppa Digital set. The sentiment is from Ali Miles Birthday set.
I also added a Starbucks gift card inside the cup here is a photo of the complete gift set.

I am really happy with how this turned out. I hope my mom will like it too.
I also received another blog award this week.
This one is from Laurel
I am suppose to pass it on to 7 other bloggers now but I am still dealing with migraines so I am going to have to pass on that part. If you are on my blog list you can consider yourself nominated though. Thanks Laurel for the award it really means a lot to me.
That's it for now. I will be back soon with more to share until then I hope you have a great weekend and as always thanks for stopping by.
