Sisterhood - Warm Thoughts

Hello my friends . . .
Well here we are in Brrrr February!
Today's card was created for the new challenge over at 
Terri is our hostess today and she asked us to
think and create 'what keeps you warm' through these cold winter months.

My first thought was a warm sweater and hot cup of tea!

Anyone who knows me knows that I wear flip flops unless there is snow on the ground! 
(call me crazy! lol . . . my sister is the same way ... must be a family thing!)

My feet don't get cold but my arms and hands sure do!
So, my first thought was a sweater and I just happened to have this
adorable Stampendous sweater stamp!
Also, through the winter months I drink a lot of hot tea and hot chocolate.
Sometimes you just need to get warm from the inside ... out!

Very striking colours Darlene and a super winter time card.

I am a flip flop girl as well, well without the toe post that is, but usually a pair of fluffy socks as well, whatever makes you comfy I say.

Many thanks for joining in with our February theme at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges.
