    I love how you did your background. Mine is always square and I don’t have a die cutter but I have plenty of glasses and jars and round things so I could do your background like that. I also have fancy scissors so I could make that cut on the circles. I want to use what you did on a card.
    That little smiling tea/coffee cup is so adorable! She makes me want to take a sip and I don’t care for coffee or tea. I love how you put that white button on there because I thought it was a donut. Was it supposed to look like a donut? I also love the snowflake. What a great card!
