Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Cuppa Cocoa


Time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  This challenge is entitled "Cuppa Cocoa" and our sponsor is My Favorite Things.  The LEAD for this challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate to their store!

Loved the blue and brown colour combo in the inspiration picture so that was my starting point.  Verve's Better With You set provided the hot chocolate mug, of which the bottom and handle are paper pieced.  A stamped heart image and a little red sequin heart provided a pop of colour and the twine bow balanced things off nicely.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Curtain Call Inspirations Challenge and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Curtain Call Crew samples as well as our two guest designer samples!  Should you wish more details on the Curtain Call Crew's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.

Jody Morrow, MFT Designer
Heather Jensen, Guest Designer


You have until February 10th at 8:00 a.m. CST to complete a new card/project using the inspiration picture and linking it up accordingly.  The Lead and Show Stoppers will be announced on February 14th.
