Sweet Hot Cocoa!

Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest Addicted to CAS challenge.  Each challenge will have a code word to inspire your creations.

Patrice is in charge of this challenge and she came up with a fun code word!

will be awarded to the CAS PERFECTIONIST
(please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Stamps:  Winter Chuckles (C.C. Designs)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Gumball Green, Be of Good Cheer DP, Red Glimmer Paper (SU!)
Ink:  Gumball Green, Sahara Sand (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Coffee and Cocoa die (C.C. Designs), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Large Scallop Circle die (Sizzix), exacto knife, sponges, glue, and dimensionals

I absolutely love the sentiment stamps and dies from C.C. Designs.  The mug is so sweet ... and they think of everything with the design.  The rim of the cup is embossed when you die-cut the mug ... then I just used my exacto knife to cut along the embossed line so that the marshmellows could be placed "inside" the mug ... they look like they are floating in the cup!  Love it!  Fun card to create!

Here's a close-up of the hot cocoa:

I hope you'll join in on the fun challenge at Addicted to CAS.  Come and check out the wonderful samples from the other Design Team members.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
CAS200PARTYE Challenge - sugar & spice and everything nice!


Just a quick note to thank Chrissie and Jen for picking two of my cards (Poinsettia Flourish and Stringing Lights) for the LIM ShowCase this week.  I'm so excited!!
