Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge #28


Hello Friends and welcome back to my blog! 
SO happy you stopped by!

Today I have a card to share for the new challenge over on the PEACE ON EARTH CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG.  Of course the theme is Anything Christmas and we hope you'll come join in the fun! 

Here's a fun inspiration board we've created to help get you started ...

 There's nothing better on a cold Winter's night than a mug of Hot Chocolate with whipped creme & sprinkles!  LOL   Today I have used one of my favorite mug die sets by Elizabeth Craft called 'Hot Chocolate' (#1570)


 (I'm sure you're getting tired of seeing this set on my cards lol)

This time around I die cut the mug from both white & red card stock then clipped the handle & rim from the red panel and added them to the white mug. 

 The Christmas tree in the background is a VERY OLD Spellbinder's die set.
And my deer was cut from kraft paper using one of the dies from the Hunkydory 'Prancing Pixie's' die set.  I added various Stickles to the tree and red stickles to the reindeer nose.
