Coffee and Biscotti...Yum

...and let's add hot cocoa!  I haven't found  good store-bought biscotti biscuits so I make my own about twice a year and freeze.  They aren't the easiest things to make and are a little time consuming, but they're worth it.

I want to give a few gift certificates to some people for thank you's in helping with my house issues.  Starbucks...here I come!  The Coffee and Biscotti set is a wonderful November Release at Doodle Pantry.  Lucky me...lucky you!

It's been a while since I've done a "swing out" card. I think it is something fun and unexpected.  I added a lot of glossy accents to give the mug dimension. Some more accents and I called it finished...haha
