Warm hugs & cocoa wishes - TMS #229


We finally got some snow over the weekend!!!  It's so beautiful!!  Now we'll just need to find the time to go skiing! 

Today is Tuesday and that means it's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches #229.  Please check out the DT's creations, then play along with us for a chance to win!!

Our family are all excited about the snow and the fact that winter is finally coming because all fall, our weather has been going back and forth between "normal" and "unseasonably warm" or "unseasonably cold."   Weird!  But as soon as the temperature even begins to drop, my youngest daughter wants hot chocolate!   I've never been much of a fan (I can hear you all gasping!) but I do enjoy some after being out in the cold.  With my DD in mind, I made this card...


I love the polka dot paper!!  It even sparkles..


Here's the great sketch we are playing with this week...


Our sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!  Plan along for your chance to win!!


My image is Cookie Warms the Heart digital stamp with a sentiment from Hot Cocoa Sentiments digital stamp. Both are from Sweet 'n Sassy. Cookie is colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  The DP is Recollections "O Christmas Tree."  I used Fiskars Threading Water border punch and hand cut the banner.

I'm submitting it to these challenges...
Merry Monday #88 - use an animal
Bearly Mine #117 - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...

What a great take on the sketch and such an adorable image and sentiment. I love cocoa in cold weather since I don't drink coffee. I bet your daughter will love this one!

Such a cute card! We've had the same sort of weather, huge swings in temps, which makes it so hard to adapt to. We've had 30 degree shifts over a single day. INSANE. I hear you on the hot chocolate - although with enough whipped cream I'll have some :)

Sweet sweet sweet card! I'm a warm weather gal all the way! I'm not a fan of hot coco either.

Debbie, I just noticed in your "About Me" that you are a home schooling mother of 4 and a pastor's wife, what a coincidence, so am I!!! :) Have a blessed Christmas season and a very Happy New Year! xo

Angela said...

Grandma Bonnie said...

Super Cute,Debbie! These images always make me smile!

Jenée said...

Cute card, Deb, and I'm right there with your daughter -- give me some yummy hot cocoa! You've done a lovely card, and I especially like that sentiment -- just may have to "lift" that from you.

Lola said...

I like those little mice! He's so cute. Yeah, I prefer coffee to hot chocolate, but my daughter loves the hot chocolate too. Such a sweet card to bring in your winter weather!

Bonnie said...

Such a sweet card Debbie! Adorable image and I love the polka dots! I'm more of a cappuccino gal, but I won't turn down a hot chocolate stirred with a peppermint stick and topped with whip cream!

Loll Thompson said...

I'm probably the biggest fan around of Cocoa & Cookie mouse, so this card melts my heart! The polka dot papers are really cute, and I just love how you did the sentiment! Cute!!

You had me at polka dots but then "sparkles"!!! Ack! Love it. Super cute card, great to see you Debbie.
Thank you for joining us at Merry Monday!

Ha Ha, while I was scrolling down in the comments to the box, I was thinking of what I was going to say, which was, "You had me at polka dot sparkles," and then I happened to glance at Lesley's comment! I couldn't believe it! That little rat stole my line, LOL!

Okay, then, I can still tell you that I love your sweet little mouse sending hot cocoa wishes, Debbie, and I love that you made your card with DD in mind!

Happy Holidays! I hope you get to go skiing!! Darnell

LeAnne said...
