Merry Monday #227 - Holiday Cheer

Hello friends.  Less than a week till Christmas...are you ready?!  Nina is hosting our challenge this week at Merry Monday, and she would like to see some Holiday Cheer on your cards.


I used PTI's Cuppa Love stamp and die set to create my mug that is filled with peppermint hot cocoa!  Take a look:



I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks to stamp and sponge on my mug and then added the holly die cuts from PTI's Shaped Sayings: Christmas.  Hard to tell in the photo, but I WOS'd them so they're really sparkly IRL!  The tag die cut is part of the Cuppa Love set and I stamped it with PTI's Tag-its #9 stamp set.  My background is plaid DSP from SU!'s Warmth & Cheer pad and I embossed it using SU!'s Cable Knit EF.  It sure has been Wintery here in Michigan, so a cup of Holiday Cheer sounds real good right now!!  :0)

Looking forward to seeing what all of you come up with for this weeks challenge!  Check out all the fabulous inspiration from my team mates right HERE and then play along with us!  :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
