Cocoa wishes

Hello, hello!

Yeah! As promised I made time to get crafty yesterday and even jumped back on the whole video thing with a new start-to-finish series for November. It totally helped that I was able to take advantage of the Black Friday sale over at Tiddly Inks and get a new cutie to color up. I hadn't been keeping up with new releases over there all summer so it was a nice way to add a few new favorites that I'd missed. :)

I settled on Cocoa Wishes Wrynn because she is so cute with her giant mug of steaming, hot cocoa. And I had just the papers to go with her thanks to my pal, Lisa. Lisa sent me a lovely birthday present that included the fabulous Yuletide 6x6 paper pad by We R Memory keepers. I've been anxious to get my hands on that cool tree print so it was a no-brainer that it would feature heavily on this card. And if you are interested in watching my creative process for the whole thing you can check out the videos on my YouTube channel. I'll also link it up over on the Color Me Copic blog soon too. 

Alrighty, another shout out and BIG thank you to Lisa for the awesome b-day gift before I sign off for the day. TTYL!

Amy this turned out so cute! I just love Wrynn on it with her yummy hot cocoa. I really enjoyed all three videos as well. I am going to try out the hair combo, but as I said I am sure it will turn out darker as it always does. lol... I am very glad that you like the paper pad. I didn't know it was one you wanted, but I do know that you don't always have the chance to get WRMK so I just had to send it to you. The snowflake is a die by Cherry Lynn Designs (my first of theirs) and I LOVE it. It is so intricate, but comes out so easy it is not funny. :O) Have a wonderful start to your week. We are very very frosty this morning, so I am off to start my car and get it going. Hugs, Lisa
