A Winter Themed Challenge

It's a two week challenge on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. I am thankful for those two weeks, but I'm even more thankful that I have an entry. It isn't even Monday, much less my Wednesday near end of deadline posting.

I spent the entire day in TM yesterday. All of my time wasn't spent creating this card, but a fair share of it was.

For the challenge, I've chosen this delightful image called "That's Hot" from the Sassy Cheryls Stamp Store. This little fellow so reminds me of my grandson, MM. He loves being out in the cold and really loves hot chocolate. I've colored the image with my PrismaColor and Faber Castel pencils.

The DP papers are from Just So Scrappy 2's kit Snow Cute. The embossed paper is Neenah Metallic paper that is now being sold at Office Depot. It has the most gorgeous sheen to it. The card was designed and cut with my Silhouette Cameo, and the sentiment is from the Silhouette Online Store.

Our weather is turning cold starting today, so my cup is going to have a hot mocha latte in it this afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by and remember there's still PLENTY of time to get a card made and entered.
