This week's inspiration comes from Designer "Deanne" and is creating a Christmas card using "the inspiration photo" shown above.   For more inspirational cards go to
Merry Monday #232

When I saw this photo, I immediately thought of a nice cup of steaming hot chocolate!   And thought of what JOY it would be to have a cup.   My card also has three little gingerbread cookies as well.  I mean, you can't have hot chocolate without cookies, can you?  LOL 
I used some dsp that is still my favorite along with some greys, and of course Whisper White.  Threw in a little spoon to add to the delight of stirring my hot chocolate.

So, as you can see, a pretty tasty looking cup of hot chocolate!
This was lots of fun and looking forward to the next challenge at Merry Monday.   Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have the time to leave a comment.   Heather :)


  1. Hello Heather and thank you so much for your sweet comment on my Merry Monday card.
    Yours is so yummy as well, I adore those little Ginger Men cookies happily peeking out from this beautiful cup. I love the sparkle too and that adorable little spoon is just the perfect detail for your lovely card.
    I always, always finish the inside of my cards, it saves a ton of time when it comes time to mail them, it doesn't take a lot of time to cut a couple of more panels and stamp a few images, I don't make the inside to involved, there should be space for a hand written note. Finishing the inside of all my cards was a New Year's Resolution in 2016 and, when the Holidays came around, I was perfectly ready to send my cards to family and friends.
    Thank you again for visiting.
