You Don't Have To Drink That, Buddy

See below to win!*

Love the movie, Elf, and the quotes from it float around here a lot, including the title quote when Buddy tries coffee and hates it. I'm joining in Tsuruta Designs Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with this gift bag I made. I think it would be perfect size for a gift card and maybe a candy bar.

I used Doodlebug Designs ribbon from Heather (thanks, Heather!) and stickers, along with a free digi art mug outline that I inked with Barn Door Distress Inks. Easy Peasy! I had fun designing a holiday mug for the hop.
