Vinyled mugs with Snowman Soup

Good morning all,

I just wanted to share a very quick and easy gift I made for some very special people in my life.  You know the kind...The kind that are there for you whenever you need something, even if it's just an ear.  The kind that do NOT judge you no matter what.  The kind that call you just to chat.  The kind that invite you over for coffee just because.  The kind that ask for nothing and give you everything.  These two people are like parents to me at times.  I am so far away from my own family that it feels great to have someone to take that roll sometimes.  They are both very, very special to me.  So here is a quick and simple, but from the heart, present for them.

I bought a pair of mugs and vinyled "His'" and "Her's" on them.  I used my cricut and my SCAL 2 and my favorite font, Fiolex Girls (minus the hearts).  
Then I made up two baggies with SNOWMAN soup.  1 package of hot cocoa mix, a few mini marshmallows, two kisses and a candy cane.  
I downloaded the tag from here and it reads:
Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit
So here's a little snowman soup
Complete with stirring stick
Add hot water - sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick
 Now I know it might not be much for such generous people, but again, it came from the "heart".  Now whenever they have their morning coffee or tea they will think of me and know that I am ALWAYS thinking of them.
