IB49 Cozy Peppermint

Hi peeps!  Happy Thursday to you all!  Brrr...it's cold here in PA, we even had a few snow flurries yesterday!  My Inspired By card for this week should warm you up:


And here is Laurel's sweet prompt; don't those candy canes look pepperminty-delicious?!


My layout was inspired by Try Stampin' On Tuesday:


I had several candy cane stamps but wanted to do something a little bolder, so I stamped the Buffalo Check stamp with Real Red ink on some white cardstock and used the candy cane die from Scentsational Season to tuck inside the mug from the same set, heat-embossed in silver:


I embossed the circle with a knit embossing folder and added a silver glimmer paper scallop, a Soft Sky tag and some Soft Sky seam binding:


The sentiments on the front are from Papertrey and on the inside, Close to My Heart!  I also embossed the Smoky Slate card base with the Subtle EF, just for fun!  I hope you can find something that inspires you in our latest challenge prompt, and share it with us at Inspired By!  And just for fun, Laurel has encouraged me to add this to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!


Santa visited Dana's work....Cassidy got all dressed up in her Christmas finery to tell him what she wanted:


Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!
