Yummy Hot Chocolate

Good Morning All

Well the snow just keeps coming, but at least there is a bit of sun inbetween the flurries and occassional blizzards.

And what can be more warming during the 'Big Freeze' then a lovely mug of yummy hot chocolate...mmmm.

And hot chocolate is what this card is all about...

It covers 6 challenges....

Simon Says - Hot Chocolate

Cute Card Thursday - New (new theme or new stash)

Fab 'n' Funky - Anything You Want

Charisma Cardz - Colour Combo 'Pink, Brown, Cream & Toffee'

When I saw the Simon Says challenge I instantly thought of this House Mouse stamped image which I recieved as a RAK sometime ago, and have been eager for the perfect opportunity to use it.  I have used new ribbon and chalks on my card and there is a heart gem, so I think thats all the challenges followed.


Stamp - House Mouse (RAK)

Papers - K & Co and Basic Grey

Colouring Medium - Watercolour Pencils, Promarkers and Chalks

Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

Punched Leaves - Martha Stewart ' Frond Leaf'

Embellishments - Ribbon, Flowers and Gems


Thanks for stopping by and keep warm and safe everyone.
