Merry Monday #281 - A FUN Inspiration Photo

Hello friends.  This week's Merry Monday challenge is being hosted by Kim and she has a FUN inspiration photo to inspire you this week.


How can you not be inspired by a photo of a cup/mug of yummy hot cocoa like this?!  I used a FUN image from Darcie's Stamps called Cookies & Cocoa to come up with this festive card.

 Isn't that just the cutest little mug?!!  I colored the image with my Copics, and then after I finished I realized that that's probably whipped cream on top of the mug and I should have colored it a LOT lighter!  Oh well, we'll just pretend it chocolate flavored whipped cream...yummmmm!!  I die cut the image with an oval shaped Gina Marie Designs die, and then added it to a card base that I added a couple different DSP's from SU!'s Fresh Prints and also a vellum and Real Red snowflake from PTI's Fancy Flakes dies.  I finished off this card some white bakers twine (SU!) and a small tag from PTI's Tiny Tags.  


How will YOU be inspired by this weeks photo??  We can't wait to see what YOU come up with!!  Check out all the fantastic cards from the DT for more inspiration, and then play along with us...all the details are right HERE.

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