Warming my hart

I needed to get back into making something in my room! It's just been too long since I've finished a card that I had to 'think'. I love the OSW, and it's a great way to make a bunch of cards when you just don't have your creative care kicked in. So.... Without further adieu... here's what I came up with... with the help of others of course

I stamped her with Sugar Nellie 'Hug in a Mug', my sentiment is something I made up and printed out digitally. ;) Distressed around the image using my finger nail because I can't find my dang tool! (see prior post for explanation) and used some of my new Sketch Copic's... paper used from Basic Grey.

I'm entering this in the following challenges (because they inspired me)
1 The Sugar Bowl - with the sketch and 'LOVE' themed and of course using a SN stamp2 Truly Scrumptious - for colors of pink,brown and green.
3 Tuesday Throwdown - for distressed
4 Stamin' for the Weekend - for something to warm you up (Hot cocoa)
5 Cupcake Craft Challenge - something with food (The Hot cocoa)
6 Stamp Something - something winter
7 Copic Creations - anything new (copics)
8 Crazy 4 Challenges - something vintage (distressed look)
9 Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Hot Chocolate
