Warm Wishes in Red


What's your favourite hot winter drink? As much as I like a good cup of coffee, I have to admit my favourite is hot chocolate. With full fat milk and lots of good quality hot chocolate. Maybe a marshmallow or two as well. Now I'm really starting to crave a hot cuppa... maybe a slice of cake too? Or a cookie? 

The first inspiration for today's card was the wintery inspiration image and sketch over at Fusion Card Challenge. I was inspired by the colour scheme, the red mugs and the snow. It's also Fusion's third birthday, Happy Birthday Fusion and thank you for all the inspiration so far and here's to many more. The DT has as usual provided incredible inspiration and there are some stellar guest designers as well, so worth hopping over to see. The background was inspired by the All Over Stamping challenge over at Just Us Girls. I'm also linking up over at Time Out where the theme is Winter (this is my second card for the challenge, and again I chose not to take the optional twist of white on white).

I have two favourite hot Winter drinks - strong coffee for everyday and occasionally mulled wine in the evening. I love your card. Thanks for joining us in celebrating Fusion's 3rd anniversary!

You had me wishing for a hot cup of cocoa too. Your card is wonderful and I'm so glad you shared it with us at Just Us Girls.

Wonderful winter themed card - nothing warms you up more on a cold day than a warm cup of hot chocolate (my fave!) Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill
