Life's short...

Usually I'm not real chatty about my projects and cards but I have to chat this one up.  I had so much fun making this.  I made this as an ornament that could be hung on the Christmas tree. I used my sewing machine to sew on the pocket and across the top to hold the ribbon in place so it will hang on the tree.  I printed the coffee cup on coordinating paper so very little time was spent coloring.   In the little pocket will be a gift card for a local coffee shop.  My thought was to make this for one girlfriend that is a coffee nut but, I had so much fun making this that several people are going to be getting one of these cuties males and females.  The coffee cup and perfect sentiment are from Doodle Pantry, the set is called Coffee and Biscotti. This project came together so quickly and was well worth the time.  I know several people will enjoy this as a gift.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
