Hot Drink

Here's a Christmas card using a non-Christmas stamp (by Stamping Bella) - I hope it's Christmassy enough - hopefully the holly and the gold on green sentiment have ramped up the Christmassiness.

I'd like to enter:

Looks Christmassy to me! Actually, she looks like she's waiting at the bus stop all ready to go Christmas shopping! :)

Thanks for joining us for our Hot Drink challenge at Cut it Up. Stay warm! :)

I think it is a great idea and looks Christmassy with the holly that you added.

Great colors, and texture, I imagine your little lady sitting on a bench in the shopping mall taking a break from an exhausting day, while sipping some cocoa or coffee. Great job. pjs-projects.blogspot.com

This is so cosy! It definitely looks Christmassy, just shows what your colour choice can do. I love the red mug, that looks so warm to hold, clever use of colour. Thank you for joining in with us at the Christmas Card Throwdown. Lucinda (DT)

The hollies and gold make this card Christmasy, but also the tartan patterned paper, nice festive detailing with this non holiday image.

Tartan always looks Christmassy on a card and is lovely matched with the green here. I'm admiring her bag too.
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.

I think it's fab! I do like the dark green tartan, always looks festive. And the little pops of red are super. Thanks so much for playing along with Christmas Card Throwdown. Deborah, DT.

It's Christmassy alright! :) The green and gold look fab together, I always forget I like that combo, thanks for the reminder!

Always nice to get extra use out of a stamp beyond its original purpose! And it certainly looks Christmasy with the addition of the holly! Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers.

I'm all for stretching our stash and this is a great way to do it Marina. I love your tartan stool and the holly and sentiment make it Christmassy enough IMHO!
Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers and I hope you will join us again soon.

Your color choices definitely make this Christmassy! Super job making this non-traditional image perfectly festive. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at CCT!

It's totally Christmassy - I wouldn't guess if you didn't tell us. Clever use of holly leaves and tartan patterns.
