Hot Chocolate Kind of Day...Inkspirational Challenge #175~Designer's Choice


Hello,

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #175~Designer's Choice, with a theme that is PERFECT for this time of year...


and especially for me, whose card stash is so low (despite the hours I spend in my craft room!), it's embarrassing! Slow production + rotating strikes at Canada Post means my cards will likely appear in mailboxes well into the New Year. Then again...Christmas should be celebrated as far into January as possible, right? Right! *grin*

My wonderful teammates have interpreted the prompt in most fabulous festive ways; please visit and leave them some love, which I know will be deeply appreciated:




that, one might argue, isn't really 'Christmas,' based on the sentiment but...check out the traditional colours and the 'festive love' being spread! Besides, Christmas Day, for me, is always a hot chocolate kind of day, because that's pretty much the only time I drink it *grin*


Turning the stage over to you!

Looking forward to visiting you in the gallery, especially
because I need more Christmas card inspiration (and more hours in the day, apparently)!

Delicious! I adore your coloring and your cardmaking style. Okay, I'm craving hot chocolate now. Happy weekend and good luck getting more cards made. I do hope the strikes end so you can be a happy mailer again.

I'm now up to date. I'd share a cup of cocoa (non-dairy) with you in one of those darling cups, Carol.
