Winter Wonderland - Hot Chocolate!

Here we are at another Sunday - and Happy Birthday to me! Yes, another year older and another year wiser, so the saying goes. Not sure about the wiser bit??

We had a great time nosing through all the lovely Vintage cards last week - well done all! This week at Winter Wonderland we have the theme of Hot Chocolate for you - yummy!!

I used the colours pink and brown for this one hoping it would convey the idea of chocolate drinks. The papers are from a kit named Mocha Love from Raspberry Road Designs. These kits are digital ones, but are so easy to use - and there isn't any waste! You just print the bits you want.

The image is by Stampin' Mama 4U, from the Digital Ink Co. Store. You really must check them out for some fabby images. There are new ones every day nearly!

I coloured it in with watercolour pencils, and covered it with decoart glitter snow and added a stripey stick to stir the chocolate with - yum!

I tried to make it more Christmassy by adding some pink holly with glittery bits by the flower, and accenting here and there with a bit of gold.

Now it's your turn! Head over to Winter Wonderland and take a look at the inspiration we have for you! And have a go yourself!
