Hot and toasty drink anyone?

I don't know about you, but in my "neck of the woods" it's feeling a wee more like winter each and every day. Today was in the thirties and to me... BRRRRRR! That's why Impression Obsession's latest challenge could be downright yummy! The challenge is to share your favorite drink! Well, this time of year, my fave would have to be a peppermint mocha. YUM! Thankfully Impression Obsession has an image that fits that bill perfectly! 

On to my creation! 

I started with this darling image called Comfort Cocoa. I just love how warm, toasty and delicious this image looks! I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and then finished it off by coloring it up with some Copic markers and here's a peek at the colors I used - R24, R27, G40, G82, G85, G94, W3, W5, W00, E50, E53, E27 and a little B0000 to highlight around the top of the mug. Add some sparkle on the berries and polka dots and the rest is just matting it up! I used a bunch of Making Memories scraps from my stash. This was actually from last year's collection. Frame it up with an oval Spellbinders Nestabilities die and some red mirror paper and you're almost done! I added some May Arts ribbon and a Kaiser Craft Sparklet. Here's a close up.....


I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card but I did stamp THIS sentiment, which says... "Warm and Cheery Holiday Wishes" Perfect, right? 

Want to see what some of the other IO gals would pick for their favorite drinks? You'll have to hop on over and see......

Thanks so much for stopping by! I've been working on a major project this week in my craft room and I'll have a peek at that coming up tomorrow. So, be sure to stop by! ;-) Have a great Thursday!!

Okay, I've been hopping, and when I got here, I decided that I just have to dump the coffee and fix some cocoa! After all, it's a wee bit too early for a peppermint-tini...lol! This is so much fun - love the mix of DP's, and the traditional Christmas colors - thanks for sharing!

Great card! Really reminds me of Christmas. Love the mirrored paper and bow, always love your little bows (you use the best ribbon also, wish I had your stash! :) ) Thanks for sharing.
