Hot Beverages On A Hot Summers Day

Good morning friends~  Jo over at Christmas Kickstart Challenge has another awesome challenge going on and I thought I'd missed it, but thankfully there's still a few days left so you can join in on the fun too.  The theme is "Your Hot Beverage Of Choice".

I turned to an old PTI set that remains one of my favorites, "Cozy Christmas". 
I love the look of the vintage thermoses and I spent some time this past winter stamping a bunch of them and tucked them in a baggie for future cards. 

  Well, this challenge was the perfect time to pull them out and put them to use.

 I made a few cards using the pre-stamped and die cut thermoses and now I have four cards added to my box for this years card list.

Thanks to challenges like Christmas Kickstart Challenge, I should hopefully be on target with my cards this year, since last year I fell short.

I'm also entering one of these cards to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
