Merry Monday....Warm Wishes

Merry Monday Peeps!!!

Today Lesley at Always Playing with Paper has a fun new sketch for us:

As you can see I flipped the sideways.
I did struggle a bit with this one, but once I got into it and decided on my image and paper, it came together fairly quickly, well quickly for me anyway, I sometimes spend two, three or more hours on one card. 
I did add an extra flag for my sentiment, but I think it looks alright.

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler card stock and all the DSP on here is  from the Festival of Prints pack.
 I stamped and die cut two mugs from the Scentsational Season stamp set and Holiday collection framelit dies make cutting the mugs out super easy! I made the "steam" using some vellum card stock. 
Cute huh?

Now be sure and hop on over to Lesley's Blog to see what the rest of the Merry makers did with this great sketch
Thanks for stopping by today and

Love the card and that hot cocoa image makes me wish I were drinking some right now as it is cold here in Minnesota this morning.
