Cocoa Wishes

Splitcoast Stampers is celebrating their 300th sketch challenge this week with a big celebration and some fantastic prizes that will be randomly given away! Check here for the details and sketch so you can play along too!
I used this adorable Sweet n Sassy stamp set called Cup of Cocoa that I found at L&L Rubber Stamps (a local craft store in Ephrata, PA). I stamped it with versafine onyx black ink, then embossed it with clear detail EP, and colored it with Tombows. I used a Deco Art Glistening Snow writer to accent the snowflakes on the cup and marshmallows in the cup. I embossed the Cool Caribbean mat with the CB snowflakes ef, and layered the main image with CC and chocolate chip. The dp panels are retired SU holiday papers and they're layered with real red and chocolate chip. The little clip was from my stash and I tied a little piece of brown hemp around it for interest. The sentiment was stamped with chocolate chip ink.
It's really soaked here in PA with the monsoon we've had over the past 2 days, but we really needed the rain. Unfortunately, the suburbs are suffering with major flooding today, but thankfully we're ok here. Enjoy your Friday and make it a great day while you're at it! Thanks for stopping by.
