All the posts about snow and the holidays had me thinking about a nice cup of joe or maybe it's hot chocolate. Who doesn't love to come in from the cold to enjoy a nice cup of something hot? And the holidays also have me thinking about early morning shopping trips and a quick stop for some Starbucks! I'm starting to get a little excited. Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and so is the annual family Black Friday shopping trip and lunch! Woo Hoo and lots of us will actually be home this year to participate. I'm going to digress for a minute here but I thought I would share a funny...we sold our house in our hometown so now our visits back require us to stay with my Mom. Well Mom has my sister and her growing family coming in and my brother with his three boys so there's not much room in the inn so to speak. Hubby and I will be staying at a hotel. And since we will only have one car I'll need a little help getting places. I asked him for his thoughts about transportation for Friday and he told me he would bring me anywhere I wanted/needed to be...but does it have to be at 4 am he said. OMG he had me cracking up! Of course he does!
Sooo let's get back to my card.
I used this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch and immediately flipped it too! Danabella has a tendancy to do that and I just loved the way it looked so I followed her. My image is Perk Me Up Peeps and it comes with the sentiment! I stamped it onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I then paper pieced the cup and colored the Peeps with copics. I added lots of shading on the paper and under the cup using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. I couldn't resist adding a winter theme since I had the Basic Grey Jovial design paper on my desk.
I had some crap on my fingers when I was working with the image panel and it made a smudge. I ended up covering it up with some clear baubles in the upper right hand corner. The snowflake border punch is from EK Success and I finished it off with machine stitching.
