I was inspired by the lovely image over at Inspired By Challenge on this wet and cold Friday here in the UK.  I love blankets and am actually snuggled under one as I type.  What annoys me the most about the menopause is the hot flushes and the fact that I can't curl up under blankets for long before I have to throw them off again - anyone else suffering like me?  lol!  Maybe you're not at that stage yet ....but it will come!

So for my card I used an old set by Clearly Besotted called Warm Solutions which also came with matching framelits.  I started out with some SU Soft Suede card stock and used a TCW stencil called Mini Honeycomb for the background - simply inking the same ink onto the card stock.  I inked and cut out my three mugs and stacked them as in the picture.  I used some SU Really Rust - a very old ink but one of my favourites and also some Soft Suede.  I also added some Tri Spectrum Sparkles in Smoked Quartz to the circles on the middle mug to give it a bit of sparkle.  I added the sentiment in Adirondack Espresso ink, sponged the edges and roughed them up a bit and added it to the matching card stock base.

My card won the challenge - how lovely.
