16 September 2022 MTTCC #43 Theme is Christmas Food and or Drink

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart always gets excited when I can craft Christmas cards. These cards are for My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog. I have been on this blog's design team for 15 of the 21 months it has been running. The theme for #43 is Christmas food and/or drink.

Competition starts September 16 and ends September 29. 

CARD #1=

Christmas-time blessing of cupcake and cocoa card=

 a. white with red bow patterned cardstock = Mint Berry paper pad from The Paper Studio; I've been trying to bash this 2016 published set in 2022...regrettably I still have sheets to use as I'm typing this draft...sigh... 

CARD #2=

Hot Cocoa, please! Christmas card

a few design and vendor notes for card #2: the cut-apart card, the little burgundy flag, the mixed food and stocking print and plaid cardstocks are from Bo Bunny; the white diamond-cut glitter cardstock is Pen + Gear; the star cardstock is Lake Life pad from Fancy Pants Designs; the taupe flat card base and matching envelope are from Paper Source; and the "MC" dazzles are from Paper Wishes website.

the cardstock print behind the hot cocoa card has gingerbread men cookies, spices, partial candy cane can be seen in the lower left part
