Think Cocoa!


Good morning!  It has gotten a bit colder around here (even though we have no snow), so it's the season for a "hot drink" as my daughter would say!

I combined a few challenges when I made this card:

Anything Goes Challenge: The Color Blue and One Other Color (blue and brown)
Creative Belli Challenge: Snowflakes and an Old or Forgotten Embellishment (Doodlebug glitter brads---have had these forever and have hoarded them because they are so pretty. I'm finally using them up...will need to buy more for sure!  Now to dig into the lime ones I bought....)
SCS Sketch Challenge: #366
Sentimental Sundays: Anything Goes (must use sentiment)
Sweet Stamps: Winter
House that Stamps Built: Blue and Brown Card Challenge

Changito is colored with pencils...actually I had to color him twice, the first time the color was all wrong.  Isn't it crazy that you can have a tin of 120 pencils and you can't find the perfect color?  I mixed a bit of brown in with the blue to make it work.  I added some glitter accents to Changito's clothing and the sentiment; the brads are also glittery.  The snowflakes are Spellbinder's dies.

Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Not Quite Navy, Little Yellow Bicycle DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter, Doodlebug Brads
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Dies, SU! Dimensionals


Thanks for stopping by today; I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are!  Time to go make a "hot drink"....

Love the way you have used the chocolate Designer Paper to punch out the snowflakes. Even your snowflakes makes me think of cocoa with marshmallows!
Very fun

Have a great one
