Quick Make Hot Chocolate

Hello.  Welcome.  I was going to punctuate the title but couldn't decide......

Quick!  Make hot chocolate.

Quick Make, Hot Chocolate.

OK, can't do more than that.  But while I was waiting for glue to dry I made this.  No, really!  I was waiting for glue to dry.  

Super quick tag.  About 26 and a half minutes.  Don't look too closely at the embosssing!!  It's a bit specky.  Less haste, more speed obviously needed.  Anyway, tag cut from snowflake patterned paper using Stamplorations Luggage Tag die (large).  Add a scrap of green card.  The cup is from Unity's January KOTM (NBUS) stamped and embossed on some paper that I coloured with brusho's.  The sentiment was created by using Promarkers to make a quick plaid pattern on a piece of card and die cut with Stamplorations Peace, Love, Joy die.  It was fading into the brusho background so I cut two more joy's from black card and layered them to give a shadow.  A bit of recycled sari and done!!

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. Your cup of hot chocolate looks scrumptious, and I am duly impressed at how beautiful your tag turned out in only 26.5 minutes! I love the vibrant colors on the mug and marshmallows. If you're going to have hot chocolate, you might as well go all the way and add the marshmallows, right?

    Thanks for joining us for our Hot Drink challenge at Cut it Up. Stay warm! :)
