Hot Cocoa

If you are looking for the Whoo's Your Valentine Blog Hop, please click here.

Hot cocoa on a cold winter's night will warm us through and through and fill us with delight. That is what we hope this hop will do for you so grab a cup of cocoa and start hopping along.

Jearise from Lorby's World is our hostess and she has a special give away on her blog so make sure you start there to see what she has and how to qualify for the drawing.

Let's get warmed up here with my project!  I decided to make a card for a friend to cheer them up:

Outside of card

Inside of card

This is an A2 size card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  The first layer was cut at 4"  5 1/4" using a retired CTMH paper pack called "Wonderland".  I used Chocolate ink to edge the layers of the card as well as to stamp the 2 sentiments "4 My Friend" from the stamp set of the same name and the sentiment "a cup of good cheer" from the "Cup of Cheer" stamp set.  

I also altered the inside of the card.  I cut 2 layers for the inside:  4" x 5 1/4" and 3 3/4" x 5" and edged both with Chocolate ink again.  I then stamped those cute owls using Crystal Blue ink.  The owls come from an exclusive stamp set that comes in our "Whoo's Your Valentine" kit.  I then added some "bling" from our Bitty Sparkles set.  The sentiment on the inside of the card comes from our "A Friend Like You" stamp set and was stamped with Chocolate ink.
