National Cocoa Day- CLC and Stamps of Life


Happy National Cocoa Day!  The Coffee Loving Cardmakers are collaborating with the Stamps of Life for a fun blog hop!  This hop has prizes... but you'll have to read all they way through for details. 

You should have arrived here from Laurel Seabrook's blog. 
If you didn't start at the beginning or got lost along the way, head over to Stamps of Life or the CLC blog to get the full list.  I am last on the list, but hopefully you won't find me to be lacking! ;)

My card today is holiday themed, but I think you will find it filled with fun, non-traditional colors. 



My card features a whole lot of scrap paper. I couldn't even tell you who it is from, but it is so fun, I just couldn't let it go.  So I busted it out and used the Stamps of Life Hot Chocolate dies to make this fun cup and this tasty looking hot cocoa.  I loved this paper so much and it matched the background paper well, so I die cut that background piece using AE die.  I thought the sentiments would be fun as shown. You'll notice I used some glossy accents on the whipped cream and added these from sprinkles.  

Here is another shot:


Stamps of Life is offering a $25 dollar prize to someone who comments along the way.  Commenting is open from Dec. 13 - 20th.  The winner will be announced on Saturday Dec. 22nd at 6 am PDT. 

Thanks for visiting today!
