Inspired By #198C - Winter Love

 

ahhhhh Winter Love - even if only for the love of cocoa, I sure hope you'll be inspired to play along!

Here's my card:

Pigment Craft Co. These Hands*, and companion dies; a very old, much-loved embossing folder that I'm sure is no longer available!

Yes, I do like my liquids steamy, and pinks pale, like this pale rose one from Bazzill! 
and here are my inks:


There is another Holiday photo inspiration, and a Sketch that might tickle your fancy, too!  Stop by Inspired By today to see them, and the wonderful cards from our team!

Ooh, I do love to warm my hands around a warm cup when it's cold outside! I love your sweater and the red cup that coordinates with it! A great embossing folder too!

Perfect image for this inspiration photo! The red cup is so very striking! I've just bought my first Catherine Pooler inks and thinking I might end up collecting them all before too long. Ruh-oh :)
