Really cute, it would be nice if there were options to add a kid or a pet to the scene.

Love, love, LOVE this design! I'd almost like to see the "Stay Toasty" in a brush font ... or switch the two fonts you are using. Just to see what it would look like. Great job!

You come up with some absolutely adorable illustrations! I'm loving the chest hair – ha! The kerning seems a little off to me between the S and the T in "Stay" …maybe you can increase the height of the S so the T can be nestled in a little closer?

Adorable illustration, I like A version better. If one thing I would play around with the placement of the handle. Not sure you really need it either

I like A better. I think the outline is a little too busy.

A - the simpler text doesn't take away from the awesome illustration :)

I chose A because i think it is much stronger without the stroke outline on the text. this is super cute and sure to be a winner!

I like the bolder looking type in A. It's a nice weight for your illustration.

haha! Love this. A for me, I don't think the text needs to be outlined since the illustration isn't outlined. Such a fun design, you're definitely one of my favorites

SUCH A FUN DESIGN! I voted A BTW, but agree about the spacing between the S and T. it doesn't seems as noticeable in B though.

Definitely A. The outline in B make the words look not part of the cup. Very sweet ;)

I think the type in A works a lot better. Also, this design is probably the best thing ever! Awesome work!
