May I Offer You a Hot Beverage?

The holiday mini catalog goes live this Friday!  I did pre-order a couple of things, but I've been having so much fun playing with new goodies from the main catalog that I haven't shared any sneak peeks yet.  Well, here's one!

I made this card with the adorable new stamp set called Hug in a Mug; it comes with all sorts of stamps to decorate the cups (and add toppings to the drinks) plus several sentiments.  SUPER cute.  It's a photopolymer set, so I eyeballed the solid color for the mugs (those are separate stamps!) and the toppings without a Stamp-a-ma-Jig (though I did use the SAMJ for the sentiment).  I don't drink coffee, but I do enjoy hot tea (having my morning cuppa right now) and hot chocolate, so I had to get this stamp set :)  The pattern on the sides of the main image is from the Coffee Break DSP, which again, I got even though I don't drink coffee.  Because I know lots of people who do.

So!  Check out the Global Design Project sketch:

As Anne Shirley would say, lots of "scope for imagination" with this sketch, but I had to bust out Hug in a Mug when I saw the Just Add Ink inspiration challenge:

Though I think one should enjoy one's morning cuppa sans cellphone.  Although I guess I can't judge since I'm writing this blog post on my computer while having my tea :)

That's it for me today, peeps.  Hoping to grab some stampy time this afternoon to make something for tomorrow...there's a plethora of sketch challenges this week.  Cheers!
