Hot chocolate....yum!!

Happy Monday folks!!  I'm grabbing the Christmas inspiration where I can at the moment while I still have the Christmas basket out, so here is my latest offering...


Because the lovely stamp is so large I chose to make an A5 tent fold for a change. The papers are, in fact, valentines ones but I think they also lend themselves to a nordic inspired Christmas card too. The image was, of course, coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment was added to a tab.  I used co-ordinating papers to make the little heart using a Marianne die set. 

I am entering these challenges

ABC Christmas - C for chocolate creams
Creative Inspiration #251 - Anything Goes
CHNC #163 - Die cuts or punches

Anyway, whatever you are going I hope it's a good day. See you soon xx

I'm a fan of that image Sarah and the sweet heart die. You used both of them so well on this terrific card! I need a cup of hot cocoa because it's freezing outside. Spring can not come soon enough for me lol. Have a great day!
