Happy National Hot Chocolate Day!

I just have to celebrate National Hot Chocolate Day with a steaming mug of chocolately goodness and a cute card. This one features a favorite Whimsie Doodles free digi image named "Ginger and Cup." (Downloaded from
I printed the image on kraft brown cardstock, added the color and a bit of shading with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The white (and red nose) "frosting" is added with Uchida Liquid Applique, applied and allowed to air dry to attain a glossy look. I also printed off an extra hand holding the mug. Colored and fussy-cut it then mounted it with foam tape to add dimension. The sentiment was printed on my computer.

  1. So yummy, Kathy! Love that little snowman cup.

  2. Wonderful card design and I love that gingerbread man and his cup of hot cocoa. The green plaid paper looks great with it too.

  3. Love how the highlights on the candy cane give it a 3-d look. Great job.

  4. What a sweet card, love that sentiment. It's what gets me into trouble during the holidays...all those yummy sweet treats!

  5. So cuute! And love the two part sentiment!


Thanks you for your comments. They bring joy to my day!
