I've used a new digital stamp set from Sugar Tree Stamps, Hug in a Mug, KN002 This is the first time these stamps have been offered.  Sit back and enjoy.  In addition to the coffee set there will be Birthday, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Baby & Owl themed sets and A2Z will be adding new inventory monthly. 

I don't think I've ever seen this style container, so it's on my cute list.
Copics markers, scrap papers, Nuvo Crystal Drops (black), & 
Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched rectangle dies

I know this is iced coffee, but, but I would use it for an iced tea drink too.
Copic markers, scrap papers, Spellbinder die & Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangle die

I think the cup says it all, don't you?  This is also my  card that I sent to my partner in Card Chain Challenge, where every month, we send cards to a person from anywhere around the world.  
Distress inks candied apple, carved pumpkin & abandoned coral flicked with water, Sizzix friend die, Elizabeth Craft Design Stitched Rectangle die & Copic marker for the coffee

Great cards! Love the patterned papers you selected to coordinate with your card images! I think that "iced coffee" is going to be a real hit! The coffee cozy around the to-go cup is fun too!

I've had fun playing along with A2Z. Looking forward to seeing more in the future!
