La ~ La Land weekly challenge.....

Morning! It is Wednesday again and that means another challenge over at La ~ La Land! This week Maureen wants us to make a shaped card ~ which means no square or rectangle cards. This one took me awhile but having been sick lately I came up with this one:


Sorry I don't have any idea where the template for the mug came from as I have had it sitting around a couple years. This sweet image, Whiskers Sleeping, I thought, was a perfect image for a get well/ thinking of you card. The little bird just looks like it is checking up on poor Whiskers! LOL Anyways I thought the mug shape would be perfect for a packet of soup/tea or even hot cocoa. I covered the top with some paper to make it prettier and the spoon is a stamp from Crafty Secrets that I just stamped out, cut and covered with my Spica glitter gel pen.

Paper ~ Bo Bunny
Inks ~ Twinkling h2o's and distress inks
Accessories ~ twine and button ~ stash, ribbon ~ Mike's, Snowflake ~ MS punch


To see the rest of the DT cards please stop over at the La ~ La Land blog. To play along just post a link to your creation by Sunday night and remember you do not need a La ~ La Land stamp to play along but you do have the chance to win one!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a fabulous day today!! (Sorry so short and sweet but I have had to type this up twice and my computer is in the basement ~ which is really cold this time of the year!! LOL)
