Bundle Up

Good Morning! I just put my kiddos on their bus and wanted to share a card with you real quick this morning before I start getting crafty today. This card says it all...bundle up....a definate must on a cold day like today. The current temperatures in Maine right now are 27 degrees. I realize some of you are sitting at negative numbers right now so I can't complain too much.

For my card I used the colors cocoa brown and light pink. I just love this color combination and with most of the challenges I used for this card haveing something to do with hot chocolate or keeping warm I thought these two colors were perfect. I have to say that this is so far my most favorite card of 2010.

The image that I used is from Elizabeth Bell and is called "Hug in a Mug". The flower that I used is from my stash (I'm not sure what company) and is actually two flowers put together with a brown button in the center of it.
I made this card using the following 7 challenges:
Incy Wincy: Bling It Up
Quixotic Challenges: Hot Chocolate
Crafty Calendar Craft: Keeping Warm
Simon Says Stamp: Hot Chocolate
Rosie Dee's Challenge: Anything Goes
Supplies: Elizabeth Bell Hug In A Mug Stamp, Studio G Series 21 Stamp (sentiment), Pink Flowers, Brown Button, Bazzill Basics Berry Blush Cardstock, Brown Cardstock, White Cardstock, Celebrate Pink Ribbon, Nicole Crafts Pink Gemstones & Martha Stewart Pine Leaf Punch
Thanks for taking a look at my card. I'm off now to work on my next card and to do a little blog hopping. Hope you all have a wonderful day today and don't forget to bundle up and keep warm.
