Candy Card & Coffee Cup

Welcome by AGAIN today!  For this post, I'm sharing an adorable little coffee cup I created for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and a sweet candy card I created for the Visions of Sugarplums Challenge.  The coffee cup was something I found at a Scrapbook store in Loveland, Colorado while I was visiting my daughter on my recent trip.  They sold these adorable tiny coffee cups with plastic lids for just fifty cents, and the "wraps" for them were....well, let's just say TERRIBLY overpriced!

Anyway, I used the expensive wrap to cover my cup, and then I tucked a paper straw in it, and added a tiny tag stamped with a retired Paper Sweeties sentiment hanging from a rusty safety pin, and topped it with wool felt holly and berries using a Papertrey Ink die-cut set.   The final touch was some Ivory Burlap String that I tucked in behind the holly and berries.
My card was created using some Crate Paper patterned papers and a simple Christmas tag I had picked up in a random package.  I machine stitched all the patterned papers and inked them as well.  On top of the tag, I added some Flower Stamens, Seam Binding, and a striped paper straw.
A cute little piece of glittered "candy" was the finishing touch on this sweet card.  I thought it was just PERFECT for the Visions of Sugarplums Challenge.  Here's where I'm playing along:
