Good Morning
Well it's freezing and raining here in Wales today. There is a real Autumn feel in the air!
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to use the word HOT in our projects.
Well have you ever had a time where everything you did went wrong? Well that's what happened to me on this one and by the time I finished it I was tearing my hair out lol!
I decided to make a card with a mug of hot chocolate and a little bag of marshmallows to go with it yum yum!
The card is 6x6 and I printed all the papers from various Pink Petticoat downloads onto photo glossy card. The mug is cut from Cricut cart Christmas Cheer @ 6" shadow in pink, base shadow in mocha and base in pink and white dots. Also extra base in silver mirri just for the steam. I cut a circle from Plantin School cart @ 5" and offset it on the card and embossed with Cuttlebug folder Divine Swirls. I handcut the sentiment Just For You and Hot Chocolate which I computer generated using font Cheri and mounted on to silver. Added a pink gingham bow.
The little bag is cut with Cricut cart Tags Bags which I opened in DS and just added a circle from Plantin School(no welding needed) for the window. The scalloped circle frame is from Storybook and again just added a circle in the middle from Plantin School to make it into a frame which is cuttled with Swiss dots. I added acetate to the window and filled with mini marshmallows then some Tuille net and a tag.
My original card had Liquid applique as the topping in the mug but I was not happy with it so this morning I ripped it off and replaced it with marshmallows lol!
Hope you will visit the Cuttlebug Spot this week and see my DT sisters fabulous projects and we would love to see your 'HOT' projects and as usual there is a prize for the winner!
Thanks for looking and have a lovely week everyone!

Woo Hoo Julie! I'm first to post. I guess we were both thinking along the same lines, lol we both went with Hot Chocolate! How funny, I had a hard time with this one too my friend, kept making changes to it. Love yours with the added little box of marshmellows. Super cute take on the challenge my friend. TFS

Hugz, xx
