The card I designed for today is my first one with this super cute set from the Holiday Catalog called Hug In A Mug!  Who would not love a Hug In A Mug?  I adore that name.  The set seems to be a little bit of a sleeper set possibly due to the Coffee Cafe in the Annual and then the seasonal coffee in the Holiday Catalogs.  But this one is just really cute.  I hope you will give it a look.

This card is a CASE from one of the Make ‘n Takes we did at World Card Making Day.  I loved the mug of steaming cocoa with the sentiment.  I added the hearts to the Pool Party layer to go along with the sentiment also.  Because of the quilt and the sentiment, I believe this card could be used for so many occasions.  A hug and a quilt are just year round love!

I have paired the stamp set with the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  This quilt pattern just emphasizes the Hug!  At least that is what I think of when I see a hand quilted quilt.  Also it brings back wonderful memories of my childhood!



These are the unlikely trio of colors I used for this card.  I would have never added the Lemon Lime Twist to these other two.  I did pull all three colors from the DSP.  And since it works in the DSP, it must work here.   I thought it would make the sentiment POP.  I hope you agree…..otherwise you are probably thinking I have lost my mind !  LOL…

Remember that today is the last day for the World Card Making Day Sale!!  It is also the last day to sign up for the October Paper Pumpkin….remember that October and November are coordinating this year.  I cannot wait to see what they are!
