Warm Cocoa Moments

How has your November been going so far? The weather seems to be changing over here in the tropics:-) I do declare I get the cool Christmassy breeze, Finally! Yay! It's here!

Here is a card, simple by design.. But truly captures what is important during the holidays.. warm cosy moments. I made this card for my husband because he generally likes very CAS designs:-) I had to photograph this on the sly so he wouldn't see this! he he

I stamped some faint snow flakes in a powder blue to decorate the white space.. I also added some Stickles here and there..

Here is a close up of the little mug of coffee.. I 'wrapped' my candy cane around it and also added Glossy accents to make the chocolate look liquid! It turned out real nice! ( I then added a grey shadow with my Copics under the mug, you cant see it in this pic but if you scroll back up, you will see it quite well in my first photograph)

Hope all your preparations and planning for Christmas is well underway:-) so far I am really enjoying getting my cards ready one by one:-)

Supplies list:

Stamps- Cosy Moments, Decorate You both by Hero arts
Colour medium- Copics
Accents- Stickles Glitter, Glossy Accents both by Ranger
