Happy National Hot Cocoa Day

How perfect is it that the Coffee Lovers (and Tea and Cocoa Lovers) blog hop is during National Hot Cocoa Day? We all have our favorite hot drinks and cocoa is one that I love to have in the winter. 

My daughter drinks it all the time, but it's definitely my cold-weather treat. In fact, I'm going to get some right now! And I have little gingerbread boy cookie so he's going to get dunked just like in this photo. I used it for my inspiration for my card today too.



I won this cup and reindeer die from Gina Marie Designs from one of the hops and love it. It's just the right size for cards...I made the reindeer into Rudolph by using red cardstock and clear Nuvo drops. The papers are all from a 6x6 paper pack that is so old you can't find it anymore. The gingerbread die can be found here.


For this version, I used paper from Doodlebug Design Milk and Cookies (for the back) and the coffee cup paper I got here. The cup is the same but I added a tree die cut from the Hero Arts Santa Snacks Stamp and Cut set. The steam is a sticker from Doodlebug too.



Here's a recipe for Hot Chocolate cookies I'm dying to try...maybe today is the perfect day to do so!



Don't forget—Leave a comment on my blog on any posts during the Winter Coffee Hop (Dec. 8-Dec. 15, 2017) to be eligible to win this adorable mini stamp set from The Sweet Stamp Shop. Hope you'll stop by after the hop too, just to say hi once in a while!
