Merry Monday #263

Hello friends.  This weeks challenge at Merry Monday is a photo inspiration one, and we'd love to see how you interpret this:


Since I tend to take things quite literally, I went with the hot cocoa and mugs in the photo and came up with this:

I started by stamping my sentiment (Mug Hugs by Sunny Studio) repeatedly on the card base using Pool Party ink, and then added a strip of Classic Kraft Pattern Paper and POW Red Glitter Paper to the left side of my card.  I stamped and fussy cut my mug out and then paper pieced the mug with some more Classic Kraft Pattern Paper (PTI) and lightly colored the marshmallows with a Copic C1 marker.  I colored the larger heart with a BG13 marker and pop dotted it to the mug, along with a smaller red glitter heart.  The candy cane was stamped with Real Red ink and also fussy cut out, and then added to the mug.  I finished the card with a little wooden snowflake (SU!) and some red & white bakers twine.

How will YOU interpret this inspiration photo??  Check out how the DT was inspired and then play along with us!  You can find all the info you need right HERE.


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