Hot cocoa

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you´re all warm and well. We have - 12 degrees Celsius and lots of snow, it reminds me of childhood winters. And I think -12 is so much better than - 18 which we had a few days ago, but I do love a cold winter with snow as long as my home stays warm and I can have a cup of hot cocoa :)

I found a lovely cocoa cup template at Clear & Simple Stamps, they have fab freebie templates, even I can follow them, hehe. This template was perfect for scraplings (all those broad 12 inch long scrap pieces). I would use this for coffee and tea lovers too.

Stamps: Simon Says Stamps fab penguin, Hero Arts alphabet.
Inks and colours: Versa Colours for distressing, Faber Castell markers, Stickles on penguin (doesn´t show too well on my photo)
Papers: Scrap pieces and DCWV cardstock with white core
Tools: Oval Scalloped Nesties, QK candy, DYMO for sentiment (the cheaper DYMOS works perfect with cut cardstock too)
Embellies are from my stash. Marshmallows are Haribo - yum.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge- hot cocoa or brown and pink, I used both :)
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - hearts.
By The Cute And Girly- Something new; I´ll give this cup to a new friend, she has had a cold for four weeks now, I hope she´ll like it.

Warm winterhugs
