Eat, Drink & Try to be Merry

How’s that for a winter motto?!  The eating and drinking are the easy part!  Thankfully, this year, we’ve had a good number of sunny days and that helps more than ever for the “be merry” part!  We’re having a mild winter for the second year in a row and, while I know it’s not the best thing for the summer crops, I secretly don’t miss the snow that much!

This week over at CASology, we’re focusing on the word DRINK and what it brings to mind.

For me, this brings to mind one thing in the middle of winter:  coffee.  I drink my fair share of it, plain with just a little milk added.  Naturally, I made a coffee themed card!

I couldn’t resist stamping the sugar cube on some glittered cardstock!  The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory in plain ole black and white!  Thank you, Paper Smooches, for making such adorable stamps!

Be sure and visit the rest of the design team and guest designer blogs for more DRINK inspiration!  Then, be sure to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CST)!


Have a terrific Tuesday!

    I love this very clean and simple card. It's the kind that looks easy but in reality takes a bit of time to put together. The glitter sugar cube is perfect!
