It's Getting Cold Here

OMG! I'm so not a cold weather person! It only makes me want to drink more coffee - is that even possible?! LOL! So, over on the Ohio Rubber Stampers group I'm in they did a Crazy Calendar Day swap. Did you know that October is chocolate lovers month? Well it is and that's the crazy holiday we celebrated this month! I knew I wanted to do two things with this month's card too! I had to use one of my beloved Changitos and I wanted to do something different then I've done before! Well, I accomplished both! I made my own little hot chocolate holder! YEAH! First, here's the pics;

Here is the outside. I used all SU paper products here, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White and Brocade blue - matching inks too! The neat punch is actually a Fiskars punch that I had to have (yep, had to! LOL!) since it matched another punch I had just gotten, and used on the inside, of snowflakes! My monkey came from Mandy, of course! The snowflakes are from a retired SU set - sorry its not available anymore!



Here's the inside - I kept it simple so that the person I sent it to could personalize it to her needs!



I hope you like my little cocoa holder! I can't wait to make more!

p.s. - a little plug for one of my favorite stores here Limelight Papercrafts - 28% off selected items! Not a bad deal so hurry!!


Until next time....
