Think Cocoa! (and some fun news....)

Good Tuesday morning! Are you all keeping warm? I don't even want to know the temp. outside, but I'm thinking a cup of hot cocoa would be pretty good right now!
Today's card uses Melissa's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. It was a fun sketch; I will have to say it was a bit of a challenge though.... I really loved the DP and didn't want to cover it up, but had to add the smaller panels . Then I thought of vellum and my problem was solved! I thought.... I forgot that you could see adhesive through vellum! Then I got the idea for the Bella Dots; good thing I had some chocolate colored ones!
Little "Changitette" is colored with pencils and her jammies/slippers are paper pieced. (I sure had fun cutting those out!) I added a bow to her hair, too. The snowflakes are Spellbinders dies that I coated with glitter.
Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Imaginesce DP, The Paper Studio Vellum
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sharpie Black Finepoint
Embellies: Chocolate Bella Dots, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in Polar Bag
Extras: Crayolas/Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Dies, Foam Tape
And now for the fun news.... Since I have discovered Melissa's challenge blog, I have been a pretty loyal player. Melissa asked me awhile back if I would be a Guest Designer for the month of January! Of course I said "yes" without a moment's hesitation! She has a lot of fun in store for January, so I hope you will play along! Thanks Melissa for the fun opportunity!
I hope you all have a great day! Stay warm!
