Default DEC12VSNL Saturday, Dec. 15th - 7:00 PM EST ~ Comfort Food

Title: Comfort Food
Hostess: Lydia ~ Understandblue
Keyword: DEC12VSNL
Day/Date: Saturday, Dec 15th
Time: 7:00pm EST


Welcome to a DELICIOUS challenge! Do you smell cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg? Pumpkin pie or apple cider? Turkey and dressing? If so, you're in the right spot.


My challenge to you today is to make a card inspired by your favorite winter comfort food or drink. I have so many winter foods I love - I love pumpkin and all winter squashes, hot cider and peppermint mochas.


But the one that really fills me with the joy of the holiday spirit is an adorable little icon of the Christmas season - a gingerbread man. My grandfather used to take us to a bakery in Maryland that made the cutest little gingerbread peeps that I could not resist using one for my sample.

So what makes your heart sing when you pop it in the oven? Show me your comfort food!


VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE
UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday December 17th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, DEC12VSNL , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos


NEW : We have a special gallery for the Comfy and Cozy VSN. When you click on Member Galleries to access the drop-down list, either scroll to the very bottom of the list (or just hit the End key which will take you straight there), and upload to that gallery


It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure you layout is seen.

Okay we are headed out to dinner soon so have to hit the shower and will be thinking about this the whole time I'm sure.
and will work on it (much later) tonight or early tomorrow morning.

so, can we borrow someone else's comfort food?
(and not hubs he suggested fried chicken and gravy lol)
(which is not much better than mine taco's)

My favorite food lately has been carrots since I've been "dieting". I made a card with a snowman die cut that's got a nose that fits perfectly. My card can be found here:
