Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Banner

Hello friends!  I hope you are doing amazing on this thankful Thursday.  Today I am hopping with some Crafty Collaborators along the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop as we share lots of inspiration related to, food and drink.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and enjoy your favorite coffee, tea, water or smoothie as we share some handmade projects with you!

Today's Project

Last year I started a personal development journey that reinforced everything that I have learned over the decades... however, it was a different approach creating a new mindset that has helped me maintain my weight loss through the past few months of recovering mono and recently Covid.  

A post-it note has been next to my fridge since July 2021 as a daily reminder to drink up and why it was important.  On a recent telehealth appointment after testing positive for Covid, I was told to "keep it up" with my water intake... granted over achiever that I am, I drink more water than most thanks to the size of our water glasses.

It was only natural the minute I spied the stamps that I have used today that the first card that I would make with them would be a reminder for my craft room!

Project Details

Vellum Cardstock was used to create my water glasses.  Heat embossing the Brewed for You glass images with White Stampin' Emboss Powder made it easy to fussy cut them.  Off-stamping the fill image with Tahitian Tide ink on the backside of the embossed images filled the glasses with water.  The Alphabest Stamp Set came in handy to create the reminder on a Basic White banner strip used from my stash of strip scraps.

I'll let you enjoy calculating how much water I drink every day as my glasses are 16-oz.  And, yes, I track my water intake daily!  How much water do you drink a day?!?

I hope you have been inspired to create a food or drink card for yourself as a reminder for habits that you need to stay on track with.  Now it's time to continue along the blog hop - you're currently with me, Angie McKenzie - to get more inspiration from the others... so look at the list below and continue along.  You definitely don't want to miss any.
