QKR Stampede Challenge #225 - Warm Thoughts

Happy New Year to all!  I hope everyone survived the holidays in one piece!  Our kids were here for Christmas, but we were alone for New Years.  It's time for our 1st challenge of the New Year at QKR Stampede and our theme is "Warm Thoughts".  I chose image #7602 1st Morning Cup, colored her with copics, cut out with SB large circle die, and matted with SB large scalloped die.  Layout is for Mojo Monday Challenge #478.  Yellow and blue paper is Bo Bunny dots and coffee cup paper and border are freebies at MeinLilaPark, all distressed with walnut stain distress ink, and gems are from my stash.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see the WARM cards my DT sisters have made and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
