Warm Wishes!

Warm Wishes are being sent your way! 
We have a color challenge for you this week at 

When I first saw the colors for the challenge I thought this is great!
I love neutrals! I had all kinds of ideas too. But then I sat down to 
create something and all my ideas seemed to run for the hills.
Nothing was working.
Do you ever have days like that?

My favorite part of this card is that background piece. I stamped two
retired Stampin' Up! background stamps on top of each other and then
sponged some ink over top. 
The big mug of cocoa was inspired by the -21C temp we were having
the day I made this.

Now it's your turn.
Hop on over and check out the rest of the DT's cards here and then
have some fun in your stamp room!
I hope to see your card in the gallery.

Happy Stampin'

Susan, I love your card! I am a coffee lover, so any stamps coffee related, I just have to have it. Your coloring is spot on and the colors are perfect for the challenge.

What a sharp card...I love it!
Thank you Donna - I am not a coffee lover but I do love coffee stamps and coffee themed cards. I need to find a chai tea stamp!
Such a cute card and I love how you did the background piece!! Looks great!
