The Hug In A Mug stamp set is sort of a “sleeper” in the Holiday Catalog.  I looked at it but passed it by in all of my flips through the catalog.  That changed when I was given the set as part of the festivities at Brian King and Pam Morris’s World Card Making Day in Atlanta.  After the hot chocolate treat favor we made with the set, I was definitely in love.  So I have made some hot chocolate for you today.

I apologize for my poor photography.  The foil in this Foil Frenzy DSP is hard to photograph.  It just wants to shine!!  Today’s card is a 4 X 4 card.  I can see making a lot of these for the winter months (or when Mother Nature decides to stay cold here in the south!).

I hope this card will give you incentive to check out this stamp set.  It is on page 42 of the Holiday Catalog.  It is a set that would be perfect year round.



Again, the DSP was my color chart.  The Foil Frenzy paper is wonderful.  It is more of a Craft than Crumb Cake but it all works together.  I added the white layer to tie in to the stamped layer.  But it is super quick and easy card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  I appreciate your visiting and hope you have a fun and safe Halloween.
