A Warm Cup of Cocoa on a Cold Winter's Day

I really enjoy a warm cup of cocoa on a cold Winter's day....too bad it is not today.  The weather here is not your typical Winter isn't even cold....and it seems like all it does is rain.....and that just makes me depressed.  So I am wishing for a little bit of snow (sorry for all of you who don't like it or have to drive long distances in it).  Maybe the snow will make me smile.  Meanwhile I was able to create a card with a cold Winter's day in mind:

This cute little girl is an image from Your Next Stamp called "Ellie Loves Hot Cocoa".  I paper pieced her sweater in the same patterned paper I used on the card.  The rest is coloured with my Copic markers as well as a few red stickles to add some bling.  Kraft card stock is Recollections; turquoise card stock is Bazzill.  Patterned paper is from DCWV Tis the Season stack from last year.  Edges were inked with creamy brown chalk ink.  The sentiment comes with the stamp.  Heart button and twine from my "inventory" (still trying to find creative words). The small red hearts are added with my Irock.

Glad you came by today.  I appreciate all of the visits.  Enjoy your day....and a cup of hot cocoa if you are so inclined.

  5. This is SO sweet, Heather, and the sentiment is perfect with your adorable little image! I love hot cocoa too - but the lack of snow doesn't stop me from enjoying it! I don't like snow but am hoping for some over the next few days. I do like a white Christmas!
