Hot Beverages Challenge

Can you believe it is already halfway through November?
Christmas will be here before we know it, the weather here in
Michigan has turned colder and we will be facing a long
bitter winter, a good time to stay inside and get cozy
with a nice hot beverage which is our theme this month at 
Double D!!

We have a fun mood board with steaming hot drinks
to warm you up inside and out!

(Coffee, Tea, Latte, Hot Chocolate, etc.)

I used a few dies to created my card and some fun designer papers.

Background paper I used was from Echo Park Celebrate Autumn,
paper to cut mug with was from My Favorite Petite Plaid,
mug die is from Cheery Lynn Designs and the 'cloth' underneath
the mug is from The Greetery Cozy Cup Coaster die.
The sentiment banner is from Honey Bee and the sentiment is 
Jillian Vance.

Make sure to visit Double D and see all the inspiring
creations from the teams, they are mazing as always!!

Entering the following challenges:
Coffee Lover's Blog Hop .... Coffee~Tea~Hot Chocolate

This is adorable Diane! I would love to find a plaid mug just like to use in real life. So cute!! This is a great use of your design paper too. We just got our first snow last night. Everything is white and beautiful! Stay warm and cozy!

Darlene said...

WOW what a lovely cup of hot cocoa! Would be perfect for the snowy day ahead of you today! I can imagine us sitting in front of that huge/beautiful window of yours watching the snow fall and enjoying the chocolate warmth in a lovely mug such as this. One day again we will have to do just that! In the meantime, stay safe & warm and just enjoy the beauty of it all (that is if your power stays on ... yikes didn't think of that till just now lol.) Either way, awesome card and wonderful inspiration to us all.

So pretty! Love that fabulous background paper and the plaid cocoa mug--how FUN! That napkin die adds so much texture and you have completed it with the most perfect sentiment! Such a cozy post!

What a cute card. I love that "placemat" behind the mug, it's perfect for the whole design. Fabulous die cuts, I just think this whole thing is wonderful!!! Oh, and I like the patterned papers too.

Like the mug of hot choc and the die for placement on looks like a napkin for wonderful framing.

Vicki said...

This is so adorable, Diane! That plaid mug of hot chocolate just speaks "happy". You know I love that napkin die cut too. Cute sentiment.

Barbara said...

Well, you got your snowy day for sure. Now you can have that hot cup of comfort of your choice. I think a plaid cup would be perfect for a coffee date. That plaid cup is the bomb!

Okay, you teamies are all inspiring me to buy some hot beverage dies. This one is so cute with the built in sentiment. Totally love the napkin die and will also have to get one of those. I'm hopeless. Love the pretty papers. You know I'm hopeless about those, too. Just received three new pads, sheesh. It's great, though, isn't it? Love your card!

Celeste Goff said...
