Merry Monday # 281 with Kim!

Welcome friends!  Glad you are back to play along with our Merry Monday Challenge where we encourage and inspire you to make your Christmas cards RIGHT NOW for next December!!~
Kim is our Hostess this week with a photo and asking us to use it as inspiration for our card.
I pulled out the Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers series from PTI and die cut the smaller jar from vellum and colored on the backside of it with a brown copic to look like hot chocolate.
I added embossed marshmallows on top and colored a bit with a C1 copic.  I also added a peppermint stick to the hot drink! *wink

 Please stop by the blog and see how the other team members used this photo and I will look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

Heart Hugs, friends!
