Hot Chocolate!


I can't believe that there's a person on the face of the earth that really doesn't like chocolate. If they say they don't, I really think that they're just trying to be different and not follow the crowd. I'd bet that unless they're allergic to it, they are all closet chocolate eaters!

I fell in love with Willow With Hot Chocolate the first time I saw her. You can get this cutie from Summer at Roses on Paper. She has a great selection of Whiff of Joy Stamps and at a great price! Willow reminds me of my girls when they used to come back in from shovelling the driveway or building a snowman after a big snow. I can see them curled up on the couch with their socks sticking out. Oh the memories this image brings back to me.

I colored her with copics and Prismacolor markers and used my Clear Stars Jelly Roller to outline the flowers on her pants. I love the Dasher Paper from Basic Grey and the flowers are from Prima's Christmas collection. The brads and ribbon are from my stash. I love this layout and it's from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #45.

We haven't had a really big snow yet but I'm sure it's right around the bend. And when it comes, I'm one that will proudly say that I have hot chocolate waiting!

You've been sooo busy Susan. What a huge collection of gorgeous cards you've made this last week. I too am a lover of hot chocolate, but while you're waiting for your snow so you can snuggle up on your couch, I'm waiting for some more sun so I can sit outside in the evening with a nice cold glass of bubbly!!!!!
