Merry Monday: Java Time

The current challenge at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge is Java Time. There was no doubt that I was going to play along with this one given how often I find time to have coffee with girlfriends - it's a happy part of my life!

I love creating little scenes with dies and I knew I had a series of small dies with which I could make this scene with a warm cup of Christmas coffee (and a splash of gingerbread creamer, of course!) 

MM Coffee

I'm actually a huge fan of cold weather and snow. Colorado is wonderful in that it actually rarely blizzards - it snows, then the sun comes out and everything sparkles! I love being out in it - love to cross-country ski and snowshoe - but I equally love coming home to a hot beverage! Coffee is a daily part of my life. I decided long ago that it was less about the taste but more about the comfort of holding a warm mug. To me, that comfort and warmth and happiness while looking out a wintery scene is the epitome of Christmas.


I used sparkly Stickles on the lightbulbs, Glossy Accents on the holly berries, and a shimmer mist on the swirly steam.

  5. Adorable tiny little scene you created on your card, Kim! Even down to the smallest detail of the snowflakes falling outside the window makes this just perfect! :)

  6. Your warm scene, paired with your description of what Christmas means to you, has me smiling. Warm beverages, warm space, warm people...that's the essence of Christmas for me, too...
