Cute right!
If you can recall, last year the team did a Christmas blog hop where we made our card and also a holiday dessert. This year the team is creating a card and a holiday drink. There really are lots and lots of holiday drinks out there so it was hard to choose. But since Christmas is kid friendly, I went with a non alcoholic beverage and made Hot Mulled Cider. It's a recipe I have never made yet and wanted to try since it is so easy. If you'd like to make this drink I here's the recipe:
Hot Mulled Cider
16 cups pure apple juice
4(2-inch) cinnamon sticks
2 oranges, peels and juice
8 whole cloves
6 star anise
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes.
Pour into mugs and serve.
One very important thing that the team and I want to share with all of you is about breast cancer awareness. Our very sweet and dear team members/sisters have been stricken with breast cancer and we'd like to help and hope that you'll help by making a purchase with Belles n' Whistles where 10% of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research in both Jacque(former DT) and Elise's honor.
Here's a closer look at the card I made. This was the perfect time for me to use my snowflake punch, added some bling in the center an also used some flower soft for the snow at the bottom of the image and added some to the tops of both of their hats. I tried to go for a realistic snowfall.
