Christmas Card Challenge Week #48

Greetings ya'll!

So another week has gone by, and we're at the end of October already.  Is it just me, or has this year gone by faster than last year?!  Good Lord, what the heck?  No wonder I feel like I'm rushing around all the time.  Time keeps moving faster and faster, and I'm left with tons of stuff left to do. lol  Anyway, you're not here to read about me complaining.  Onto this weeks Christmas Card challenge, which is: Liquid Applique.

For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I struggled a bit when trying to come up with a card for this week.  Ultimately, it turned out quite cute, but there isn't much liquid applique on my card.  I simply used it to create the marshmallows in my hot chocolate.  I thought the idea was pretty good, but not sure I'm digging the fact that I feel like I dropped the ball with this weeks challenge.  Bleh.  I guess it's not the end of the world. lol  I've also combined the following challenges in my card:

Inspirational Card Sketch #137 - Sketch
Play Date Cafe (PDCC#105) - Kraft/Taupe, Flesh, Cadet Blue
Alphabet Challenge Blog - T for Tea Time (I have a teacup on my project)
Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - Food & Candy (I have a drink, hope that's ok)
Lily Pad Blog - Texture Challenge (I've got lace, twine, and the paper is both embossed a bit and has glitter, and the liquid applique, hope that fits)
Sew Many Cards #72 - 2 different background papers
Winter Wonderland - CAS

I do hope you'll head over to the CCC blog to see what my friends have created for you today.  They're all just adorable! 

Have a great day!

I think it's very clever, Steph! The challenge didn't specifically say you had to use a ton of it, right? ;)
