Bring me a cold one, will you?.....

Hello everyone: I don't know about you but I LOVE  BEER, yes, yes, my hubby and I enjoy a nice cold one (sometimes two😋)in all kinds of weather so, when I saw the CASology challenge yesterday, with the CUE CARD "COLD", the first thing that came to my mind was BEER, not snow, not ice, just beer, are you shocked? LOL!!
So I made this very simple and hopefully totally CAS card, hope you like it.

I thought I had a stamp with a beer mug among my stash, I knew I had seen one somewhere but alas!! I didn't and then I remember where I saw  a picture of a beer mug and it was on the SU 2016-2017 annual catalog as part of a set called Mixed Drinks, (I think I will order this set, love all the images) so, I grabbed the catty and traced the beer mug onto a piece of Vellum with pencil then, transferred it to my die cut panel by rubbing the image with the bone folder, then I went over the pencil lines with a fine tip black pen, easy peasy.
I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the foam, hope you can see it. The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles".
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and the horn are from a new Power Poppy set called "Marcella's Mixed Tape Volume1" 
I would like to link this card to the following challenges.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate this more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Very clever my friend! What else do you have in your bag of tricks. I also love a icy cold beer in the bottle. There is no other way.

I'm chillin'! This is adorable and I love all the white with the simple mug!

Well arent you a clever one, tracing and beautifully done too. Nothing like a coldy or two especially in the middle of a heat wave. Cheers big ears xx
