Melt Away the Winter Chill... with Basic Grey!

Morning! Don't fall off your chair, yes I'm posting again... :) This card was inspired by the COLD winter weather and the fact I like Chai tea to warm up. I found this saying from the retired set SU! Winter Wilma. Remember this from years back? :) The coffee cup is from SU! What's Brewin'?. I enjoy pulling out my old sets to give them new life!!

The coffee cup is paper pieced, sponged the edges inside my Nestie shapes, and been wanting to use this DP for sometime now! The DP is "Eskimo Kisses" from BasicGrey, Nesties are Labels Four and Tags Five, ribbon is retired SU! Cranberry Crisp, and my EK Boarder punch. Keep warm this weekend! Get some stamping time in (perfect weather for it!) and I can't wait to blog surf... Check out all those FUN and CUTE creations!

SMILES... Michelle :)

Great card. Love how you paired the images, papers and colors. The card evokes a warm feeling which is great for this frigid winter we're having.

FABULOUS card - and sooo great to see the versatility of this fabulous DP being used for something other than Christmas! Snuggle up and enjoy your hot chai tea - we're hitting over 100oF here over the next couple of days - iced tea for me - LOL

Michelle, what a brilliant card! I would love to receive it right now what with the heavy snow here in East Sussex, UK!!

Hi MIchelle, I love your card and great combinations of paper and ribbon colors. It is great to get some ideas for winter cards that will work past Christmas time. A good way to use up some of those holiday papers that I still have!

I love Chai Tea too! Nothing better in this bitter MN cold.

Hope you are doing well. Thanks for sharing! Blessings.

Hi Michelle, I love your card and the sentiment is lovely. This card made me smile and reminded me of how lucky we are. We may have a lot of snow to deal with, but we are all snuggled up in our warm house with all the supplies we need, and of course by that I'm including cardmaking supplies ;o) I LOVE those BG papers, you've done a fab job!! x

Love Love Love this card, Michelle!!! It is just the most WARMING card in every way! Let's just say I love it when you take out your old SU stamps and give them new life!

It's so nice to have a moment (finally) to pop in and visit. I smile from ear to ear the entire time I'm here.

Thinking of you and sending WARM thoughts your way!
