It's my challenge over at Quirky Crafts Challenge blog, and I set Baby It's Cold Outside - so let's make cocoa (or a hot drink), makes to feature cold weather and hot drinks! Because it is me I like to add a twist if I can!
We are sponsored by Bugaboo (who have a freebie every week, this week a Christmas one), Crafty Ribbons and a special extra prize from our Guest Designer Gloria (for USA entries only).
I used Poppi Xmas Cocoa and Circle Sentiments Warm Winter Wishes from Bugaboo, both coloured with Promarkers, and the Poppi image is die cut with Spellbinders, I made the sentiment the wrong size to fit any die so hand cut it. The papers are so pretty, they are by Dovecraft.
I added some liquid pearls to make the cream on top of my hot chocolate, and some stickles to the penguin's hat. The gorgeous purple grossgrain Let it Snow ribbon is unique to Crafty Ribbons, I just bought the "want it all" deal which is a metre of each colour.
The inside is finished with more of the same pretty paper.
Okay, I know this video doesn't have any sign of cold weather or cocoa, but I like it! If you want the cocoa and snow pictures (and a bit of Buble) there is one on the Quirky blog which has stills of both! There is also a lot of great inspiration by the rest of the team.
