Cup of Cocoa...



Good morning all - brrrrr.... it's getting chilly out there.  Weather Canada says it's supposed to get down to -28C (-18F) this weekend.  Hmmm...  I wanted to put up the outdoor Christmas lights, leave it to me to do it the coldest day of the Winter so far.

I used this cutie pre-colored CDS Cup of Cocoa, that should help me stay warm and toasty.
 Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps Digi;  American Crafts papers;  Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  Circle and Beaded Circle Nesties;  Martha Stewart Crystal glitter;  Fiskars Threading Water border punch;  vintage button;  hemp twine;  snowflake tree ornament.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this cocoa card for the following challenges:  Crafty Creations - recycle (Christmas tree ornament);  Pixie Dust Studio -  blues, reds, creams;  Prairie Fairy - no black lines;  ABC Challenge - D is for Dazzle;  A Gem of a Challenge - sentiment, stitching, and sketch:



Do have a wonderful Wednesday - stay warm!

Lovely card! I won't tell you where I live, but, I'll tell you, it's certainly NOT that cold here! I think if it was EVER that cold here, we would be in a state of emergency!! Thanks for playing along with us at Pixie Dust Studio!
