cup of cheer...

Hey friends!!  Hope your weekend is going well... for everyone of the east coast it is my hope that this snow storm ends quickly and life gets back to normal for you in short order!!  Still raining here in the PNW and while I'm getting a little tired of it I will take rain over snow any day!  All this rain makes it easy to stay inside and make cards and so I have another card to share today.  This one is for the current Merry Monday Christmas challenge to create a card with your favorite hot beverage.  My favorite hot beverage is a Starbuck's tall Chai Latte all soy... no water.   I combined it with the current Color Throwdown challenge (who can resist a color combo of pink, aqua, kraft and white??? not me, lol!!).  I used my favorite Christmas/hot beverage theme stamp set Holiday Treats from Verve.  I die cut the little go cups and then stamped one in pink and one in aqua.  The little doily I placed them on is a My Favorite Things die and then I added that to a banner cut from pink using the smallest MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax die.   The rectangle of patterned paper was die cut using a Reverse Confetti die.  I thought the main panel looked a little plain so I added some partial embossing before layering everything up.  Another quick and easy card, but I like quick and easy so it is all good, lol!!

Coffee is always a good idea ;-) I love that they're small-ish and allows you some white space on your card. Gorgeous design! Thanks so much for playing the Color Throwdown Challenge this week!

I really love this card with its color combo! Like you, I tend to combine stamps
and dies from several companies; I guess it's OK, right? :)
