A Few for a Couple

Good evening, All!  I've got a few cards for a couple of challenges, but I'm going to apologize right now (photos are not working for me in the evening photo sessions).  I played in a Christmas challenge recently, and now I've got the bug -- or at least at the moment!  These first two cards will be entered at the Twofer Card Challenge #21 Sweets:

My common element is the sweet latte in the holiday cup.  The card on the left is a holiday card, and the cup on the left is well.... for encouragement, so it will be entered at Time Out #146 Encouragement.  Here's a closer look at both but check out that shine, one with gold ep and the other with pearl paste!


Then while I was on a roll, I made a 3rd card with similar ingredients, still using the holiday cup...

A holiday card and a shaker.  You can't really tell but the frame is actually a gold shimmer cs, glitter red Stickles for the berries and a mixture of glitters inside.


   #1 - HA Coffee Cup Tags (NBUS, used in all 3 cards)
   #2 - MFT Blueprints 27, SSS Gingham stencil, MFT Hug In A Mug
   #3 - LI Stitched Rectangle die, MFT BP 27, MFT Hug In A Mug

This has been a photo-heavy post, but I wanted to get this posted and entered before I head out on vacation.  I'll be checking in with your blogs, but may not post since I won't have all of my supplies with me.  Thanks for stopping by, and hope your days are cozy, warm and cheerful!
