Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I'm linking up to the Holiday/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop on this auspicious day,
by paying tribute to the comfort drink of choice for both young and old--HOT COCOA!

On a piece of Grout Gray card stock, I stamped the Sweater Stitch Background
in Grout Gray ink, and die cut the rectangle element from Blueprints 24.
The mug was die cut from Green Eyed Monster, the heart and cocoa from scraps,
and the whipped cream from Whip Cream card stock--how appropriate!

I added some dimension to the mug by ink distressing with the same ink color
and distressed the edges of the heart with white pigment ink. I used a Copic
marker (#E000) to emphasize the yumminess of the whipped cream. 
The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of Gravel Gray card stock
and adhered to the bottom of the panel.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Amy and Chaitali for another successful hop!
