Cocoa Anyone?

What a terrific day I had! The perfect day to end a terrific weekend. The decorations are down and things are slowly returning to our post-Christmas normal (what's that??) I hope that your weekend was not only terrific, but you were comfy warm!

One of my goals for 2010 is to really work on combining many challenges into one card, one posting. And with a few of the challenges this week, I was able to do just that!

Simon Says and Quixotic Paperie have a similar challenge lined up... this week it's about hot chocolate with marshmallows, whipped cream. YUM!  I just happen to have the most perfect stamp for the occasion. With record temps close to freezing just about everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, a hot chocolate with whipped cream sounds delish. So what's all that brew-haha about global warming?

The challenge at Charisma Cardz is to use brown, cream, pink, toffee colors.. what a great color combo... Love it and it's perfect for this image.

The sketch challenge is from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Both SCS WT252 and Cute Card Thursday have challenges to use something new - paper, ink, embellishments, etc... so I pulled out my new Basic Gray designer papers and another new set of Nesties snowflake dies.

Here's my card... six challenges in one!

Cute little guy... don't you think? Snowmen are like teddy bears.. they have their own personality and can make you smile in a minute!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll see you again during the week. In the meantime, be safe in all you do.

Details: Stamp from Darcie LLC, Basic Grey designer papers, White Neenah cardstock, Nesties snowflake dies 1 & 2, buttons from my stash, liquid applique, glitter pen, pop dots, copic markers, white glaze pen.
