Sending You Warm Wishes


Nothing warms you like 
a cup of cocoa on a cold winter's day.



When my kids were younger we went sledding down the hill in our backyard almost every day....and afterwards we would come in and have hot cocoa.  
That is what this card reminds me of.

The background is cardstock I printed using my Cricut Imagine "Christmas Wish" cartridge.   If you have a Cricut Explore you can print this in the Cricut Design Space.  The image was also print & cut with my Cricut Explore....she is one of Sherri Baldy's 3D pre-colored Besties Coffee Bestie but since I don't drink coffee I wrote Cocoa on the cup.  The snowdrifts were made with a die from Paper Sweeties Sweet Cuts die set Thanks Snow Much ... I lightly chalked the tops and then sprayed them with Diamond Dust so they would glisten like snow.  I finished it off with a few snowflakes.
