Happy Sunday!

Boy, it's the middle of February already!  Time is flyin' by!  Hope everyone had a wonderful "love" day yesterday!  The Hubs and I are both sick so ours was pretty blah.  I did manage to cook us a nice dinner and he watched "You've Got Mail" with me (til he fell asleep).  lol

Below is my card.  I used the "Thanks a Latte" stamp set and coordinating die set from Your Next Stamp.  

I also used my Tim Holtz splatter stencil dabbing it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the cotton candy cardstock panel.  Then, I dry embossed it with the Tim Holtz grungy dot emboss folder. I only embossed the middle section using a small hammer to lightly tap the emboss folder where I wanted the pattern.  I stamped the coffee cup and lid onto patterned paper and cut a cup cozie from the same patterned paper.

Such a sweet card :)
I like your splatter behind the coffee cup.
Great idea to use a hammer to only emboss the area you wanted :)
