I hope you had a fabulous day yesterday!  My hubby and I just relaxed all day, and ate too much.

Today’s card is another use for the Cup of Christmas Bundle.  It shows that this stamp set doesn’t have to be for Christmas.  To me it seems more like a wintertime set.  And that is what I used it as.



To play along with the Global Design Project 221 Color Challenge, I made a cup of hot chocolate.  To me that is most definitely a Sweet Treat!

Here is the Color Challenge:

These colors, and especially the Early Espresso, made me think of Hot Chocolate.  I did a bit of a watercolor wash behind the cup using  watered down Shaded Spruce at the bottom and Early Espresso at the top.  It was supposed to be a little shadow and then steam coming out of the cup.  But when I added the tag it covered up most of my steam.  So I went with the tried and true “flicking” of color from Stampin’ Write Markers to give the background some color.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Hopefully you have another day of relaxing to do.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.
