CAS Christmas September Challenge

Hi everyone.  It's the start of the September CAS Christmas challenge.  This year is flying by so quickly!  This month is being hosted by Nance (Soul Stampin').  I think you'll have fun with this one! :)


I know this probably doesn't look like much of a holiday treat, but I imagine this cup is filled with a delicious eggnog latte - yummy! :)

I bought this stamp set from STAMPlorations recently.  There are four different designs for the inside of the coffee cup.  I LOVE the Christmas one with the poinsettia.  So pretty.  I also love the colours of white, red, and light blue together, so that's where I went with this one.  I kept it very CAS by just fussy-cutting my watercoloured Christmas cup and popping it up on foam for dimension.  A simple sentiment finishes the card.
