Be Warm

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday!
Hope all is well?!...

With the new year starting and my kids finally back in school, I feel somewhat 'refreshed'. I'm staying caught up with DT work (as of right now) and I'm finding time to create, whether it be for a challenge or just for fun. :)

So today, I'm sharing a simple card I made for the current Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge.

Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge 5

Well, I probably could have thought of doing something more outside of the box...though, that doesn't always necessarily go well for me. (which I know things take practice but let me be honest, I'm not always that patient with things. lol) So, I went with using a 'new to me' stamp set from Concord & 9th.

I had this stamp set for a little while now but just never found the time to ink it up...until now that is. ;) I also been doing some more coloring and this time I tried adding some shading (so to speak) or maybe gradient colors for my cups?...(I'm not always sure on the term to use, though I think you know what I'm talking about?...Hopefully.)

I did keep things nice and clean. After coloring my cups, I used the matching dies with them and I also used the die for my 'steam'. Before adhering things to my card, I added my sentiment pieces, in this case 'Be Warm". So what do think?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!
