Cute Card Thursday - Banish the Blues!

A perfect antidote for the Winter blues, our theme this week on 
is 'Banish the Blues' to add some humour to your cards.
We are sponsored by The Stamp Shoppe this week!
I love these fun sentiment stamps from Stampin Up, only bought them the other week but then discovered I don't have a single stamp of someone eating chocolate! Can't believe it!  This Whiff of Joy image is still one of my favourites and as I always have a cuppa with some chocolate or maybe that is always have some chocolate with my cuppa, works for me!
Other challenges ~
Friday Sketchers ~ for the fabulous sketch
Paperplay challenges ~ stamp it out 
I have just taken delivery of my very first tin of Prismacolor Pencils and so enjoying playing with them but I cannot find a good tutorial.  Anyone know of one, I would be very grateful for the link!
You can see my results next week when I show the projects I am working on this week for the latest Whimsy Rubber Stamp release, 16 new stamp sets and 2 new dies, all I am going to say is you will love them!  
You can see some sneak peeks from the design team as early as tomorrow!
Check the Whimsy Inspirations Blog over the next few days for the daily sneak peek schedule!
Thanks for dropping in, have a fantastic day!

What a sweet card! I'm on a diet mind you so it wouldn't apply to me! I, too, just received my very first tin of Prismas. So far I have admired how pretty they all look in a row so if you do find a good tutorial please post a link! Hugs, Lesley

Gorgeous card the colour combo you've used!
I agree chocolate and tea go well together :0).

Look forward to seeing your sneak peaks.
