2017 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop #2

National cocoa day celebration took place under Coffee Lover's blog hop, and it was on the 13th. I finished this card a day and half later. lol, but I couldn't pass the opportunity to "honor" the National Cocoa day! Although I currently live on a tropical island, the average temp.of 83F all year around, when "winter" comes (meaning, December!), my head tells me to drink hot cocoa! And of course, at the grocery store, they ship those (seasonal food and drinks) from US mainland, according to the calendar, NOT the temperature! Just like October to November, we see pumpkins in the grocery store, and this island doesn't produce pumpkins at all! lol! 
Anyways, this is my card. Since I still needed to make more Christmas cards, I combined the hot cocoa with the Christmas theme. Inside, it says "for a happy holiday"! I imaged the ornament, hanging in the Christmas tree but I didn't have pine needles die, so I used the closest image die I had. Rather a simple card, but "faux stitching" both inside of oval shaped paper & rectangular paper give some interest on the card 😊 Entry #843!

Hot cocoa & the sentiment ~ Lawn Fawn 
Wonky oval die, Stitched rectangular die (from Blue Print #20), the handle die of the ornament (from Tag builder Blue Print #6) , Leaf die ~ My Favorite Things

One more day for the hop, and the last day will be celebrating International TEA day!

Have a nice weekend!

love always your card concepts. I haven't had the time to stamp and feel guilty. I think I collect more than I stamp right now. Love you Bunny...

Love your pretty ornament! Adorable! I hear ya about weather. I'm in the Southwest and it definitely doesn't feel like Christmas here, but I'm ok with that! I still put out my snowmen and love to partake in all of those wonderful winter goodies.
