MCT Thrifty Thursday: Love You A Latte!

by Veronica

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I have all of my cards ready and waiting for The Hubs. He'll find a new card waiting for him each day from 2/8 - 2/14. It's just my little way of reminding him how much he means to me.

The Hubs is NOT a coffee drinker - at all! But I love a Starbucks Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte! (I should mention that I also LOVE the Keurig he bought me for our 11 year anniversary last December.)

When I tell the cashier what type of drink I want, he writes my order on my cup as "SKVL" so the barista knows what to make me. At home we call this a "skivvel", so I know that The Hubs will enjoy my little order written on his 4.25" square card.

The original sentiment from You Are Perk-fect says "like you a latte!", but I prefer "love".

Little tidbit: When I was little, my Mom used to scratch out the "from" on Christmas gift tags and write "love" to replace it. I think this just stuck with me.

I borrowed the "LOVE YOU" from Chocolate Greetings. The cup and size stamps are from MCT's Coffee Break stamp set. I also used a few dies: 4x4 Journal Die + More (stitched square) and the layering arrow banners from Fly Away With Me Sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today! Check out the other designers' creations on Emma's blog.

I hope you were inspired!
