Warm Hugs... 2015 WINTER/HOLIDAY COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP, CAS(E) This Sketch #152

Hello,

I'm flying in just under the wire to get my card in for today's National Cocoa Day celebration, which is part of the bigger enterprise - hostessed by our wonderful Amy T and her fabulous crew - the 2015 Winter/HOLIDAY COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP. 

On the main blog, Amy comments that she is "floored with the generosity of this AWESOME Paper Crafting Community!" Well, I think I speak for most of us in saying that we're FLOORED by you, Amy. The time, energy and creativity you invest in putting on these events where we're given a chance to play and win outstanding prizes is remarkable. You're a gem, my friend!

Anyway, here's my very straightforward card...a snowflake embossing folder, which seems to have been my go to item today, as you'll see in my next quick post, and two mugs of cocoa from MFT's Merry Christmoose set.


ETA:  On the advice of my sweet friend, Leigh (THANK YOU!) I'm also sharing at CAS(E) this Sketch #152



Keeping it quick...we have a whole lotta hopping to do! (Whew..#321 @ 5:58...talk about cutting it close!)

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday evening!
