The Christmas Kickstart Challenge #14 - Your Hot Beverage of Choice

It's time for a new challenge here at The Christmas Kickstart, and also time to welcome a new elf. I'm sure many of you will recognise Monika from Creative with Monika

"Hi, I’m Monika from Munich-Germany. I was born in Indonesia and moved here with my German husband in 2001. I have 2 sons (aged 13 and 12 years old) and I work in Accounting. I love making cards and started in 2009 when I moved to Munich. Since coming to Germany I studied to be an Office Administrator-Accountant and got my first job here in 2013. You may know me from a card challenge with Lilian named Creative with Stamps.

The theme for this challenge is:

Your Hot Beverage of Choice!

We're equally happy to see coffee, tea, hot chocolate or a glass of mulled wine - anything that would warm you up on a chilly winter's day!

Monika created a sweet paper-pieced card for this challenge; you can visit her blog to find out all the details of how she created her card. 

For my card I broke out this gorgeous image from Picket Fence. This really is a terrible photograph of a sweet card! You can find out the details of this make on my blog. 

As always, we have Rudolph with us and he has another lovely Random Raffle Prize on offer in the form of a gorgeous clear stamp set from Kaisercraft.

Kaisercraft Mint Wishes CLEAR STAMPS

Please come and play along with Monika and myself for this new challenge - we're very much looking forward to seeing your hot drink related creations!
