Pumpkin Spice Latte

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Man oh man do we have a mess to clean up outside our house! After Irma (then a tropical storm) came thru here on Sunday, we have limbs & branches & leaves & acorns EVERYWHERE! First time in history a tropical storm warning was issued for north Georgia. We had a lot of rain along w/ all the wind, too. At least there weren't any tornados. It was just too cool for those..our high temps on Sun, Mon, Tues were only around 60 degrees. 

With those fall like temps, I'm thinking it might be time for some Pumpkin Spice Latte! I'm not a big fan of pumpkin anything, but it sounds good. The first thing that came to mind when I rec'd this new Pumpkin Spice greeting, was latte or cappuccino. And I thought I had one of those go cup dies, but I didn't so I used this fancy one instead. (Hint to Sue: that coffee cups image I asked for a long time ago would have come in handy 😁)Anyway, after I die cut the cups I sponged the edges & cut one handle off & put it on the other side so they could be facing each other. The Bee Trail was stamped w/ the Distress ink to serve as steam & I added a small label & little pumpkin to each cup. The kraft bg was embossed & the edges sponged then the larger pumpkin & greeting were added.
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used for the pumpkins.

Haha! I had the same thought Julie, but I don't have any mug dies! I feel like if I think enough, I can fashion one some how. This card is just beautiful, and the bee trail for the steam was a stroke of genius!
