Hi, Friends......

Mmmmmm....yummy hot cocoa with whipped cream and a sweet minty candy cane on a very chilly Idaho evening!! I just love that there are Christmas challenges all year round. It gives me wonderful motivation to be making my holiday cards ahead of time and a great excuse to use Christmas memes! :)

Here's another "Scraps and Strays" card I made using a leftover cocoa image from the Winnie & Walter Freebie: Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 - Holiday Mint.    I even had the stray sentiment floating about in my stash and layered coordinating scraps together for a fun and festive card!! Yay!!

I drew in some of the layers of whipped cream with a Distress Marker....very daring of me!!  lol... and also put a layer of Wink of Stella over it, but you can't see the shimmer in the photo.  :(

Products used include:
Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 - Holiday Mint
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts stamp set
Versamark Ink
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Scraps from DCWV and Core'dinations
Distress Marker in Antique Linen
Zig - Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen
Twine from stash

Hope you enjoyed this card that might not be quite as out of season as it seems!! We are in a winter weather pattern right now in Idaho....we had blowing snow all day long and temperatures predicted to be in single digits tonight.  Brrr.... Sending sweet and warm wishes to you!!!

  11. How did I miss seeing this adorable card? Not only do I love the card but that cat meme has me chuckling, as usual. I'm as impressed by your ability to find funny cat memes as I am by your card-making skills...haha! So, after seeing this sweet card, I'm off to check out the W&W freebies, because I don't remember seeing this cocoa mug at all. I could use some of that cocoa right about now because it's 64 degrees and I'm still working on my taxes, ugh.


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
