I'm loving this new set I won in a competition from Sunny Studio called Mug Hugs. I can't stop playing with them - you know what that's like when you get a set you just love to create with you look for all ways you can use it.

The challenge over at International Art and Soul is Inspired By A Book so I grabbed my set and went with one of my favourite books - Chocolat by Joanne Harris - I was lucky enough to meet her last year at a local literary festival when we went to a Q&A with her.  

So to start my card I grabbed some Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Gathered Twigs and Early Espresso and then spritzed them with some water having masked off half of the card stock.  I stamped out them mugs twice - once as normal and the other doing the reverse image with a piece of cellophane paper.  It came out a bit pale but I just went over the lines with a black thin pen.

I then used the same colours to colour in the mugs a chocolate colour adding a touch of Rusty Hinge too.  The heart was stamped inside the mugs and coloured in with Festive Berries.  I used an SU blender pen in light gray for the marshmallows and added some Dazzling Diamonds.  The little cookies are also coloured in with TH Abandoned Coral and Festive Berries for the sparkles.  The sentiment is stamped in SU Chocolate Chip and I've added a few heart gems I have.  

It's my 35th Wedding Anniversary in September - I'm wondering whether to give this card to hubby even though he doesn't like chocolate!  What do you think? 

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
Paperminutes - Chocolate
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Arty Divas - Anything Goes
Use Your Stuff - Books
Just Add Ink - The letter T for two, together, treats
Tuesday Taggers - Splash and Splatter
