Thinking Mocha

Good morning, Friends! I had every intention of posting yesterday but ran out of time. We had to get Nick to the gym early yesterday for his basketball tournament. The team played three games yesterday. They won one and lost two. They didn't play terrible for a team that has been together for only a few short weeks! Then we came home for just a few moments and bundled up for a baseball fundraiser at our local parade of lights. The boys sold hot chocolate and cookies. Didn't make a ton of money but didn't do too bad either! Today we will be at the gym early again for two more games and then we go up to the 'ranch' where Pat's family is and have an early Christmas. Since we are all heading out of town later this week, we are getting together for a little Christmas! Very exciting! Anyway, it has been a busy weekend!! 

Today's card is one that I made a while ago. Not a favorite but there are things that I like about it. As I look at it, I do wish that I had paid better attention and made the stripes match. But I love these colors!! And I love the Mocha Morning designer paper!! My card base is Early Espresso with a layer of Crumb Cake that was run through the Big Shot with the Tulip Frame embossing folder. Then I cut a piece of Early Espresso and scalloped one end and tied a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon around it. I cut four squares of Mocha Morning designer paper, rounded the corners and glued them onto the Early Espresso piece. This panel is popped up on the card. Then I cut a square of Crumb Cake and stamped the tree from Thoughts and Prayers in Crumb Cake and the greeting in Early Espresso. I also sponged the edges in Crumb Cake. This square is also popped up. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
