We have a winner!

Using several of your suggestions, I've "revamped" the snoozer card. I had Ky draw names from those who submitted. I really like it now, and am excited about sending it out to the winner, Dawn Mercedes!

I couldn't really send out a coffee cup-themed card without a little Joe to go with it, so she'll be getting a Starbucks gift card. (see it peeking out of the card?) And then, because there's a saying that goes with the set about good friends with chocolate, I'm sending her 5 yards of various colors of chocolate ribbon - one yard of each pattern. And, as promised, she'll also get the card.

Dawn, please email me your mailing address and I'll get this out to you! Thanks so much to each of you for taking the time to comment on my card! It was fun reading all of them. :)

Here's a close-up of the coffee cup piece. I drew over the steam with my stardust glitter pen and restamped the cup in Cool Carribean ink, put Crystal Effects over it and let it dry, then cut it out and mounted it with 2 dimensionals in the center so the cup curves out.

The beans also have Crystal Effects over them. I pierced all around the edge of the Chocolate Chip piece, added 3 copper brads in the lower-right corner. I replaced the Close to Cocoa ribbon with Chocolate Chip ribbon, and tied a small piece of hand-dyed Cool Carribean ribbon in the knot.
