Welcome to the first challenge in December! We have a couple Christmasy challenges for you this month - but don't feel you have to make a Christmas card. You can be inspired in any way you want! This week's inspiration from is this fun collection of mugs from Garnet Hill.

Today is the quickest creation!!! I had made a card but realized this a.m. that it was the wrong week for the inspiration photo I used for it so back to the drawing board and I only had 45 minutes. Yikes!!! Hope you like what I came up with!! I used the Peace and Joy stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs and made a Hot cocoa mug. The paper is from Memory Box. I embossed snowflakes on the blue background using the snowflake from the Peace and Joy set. I will leave more details on this later since I only have 5 minutes to post before having to run my daughter to piano lessons. I am already late. Eek! What a way to start the day.! is my creation:

Be sure to check out the cards made by all the Divine Divas for this challenge!






(Keri is sitting out our December challenges.)

Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC17. Have fun!!

Thanks for stopping by!! I can't wait to blog hopping after my hectic beginning. Gotta run!!
