Crazy4Cocoa Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Crazy 4 Cocoa blog hop!  We all adore Cocoa and thought it would be fun to showcase him all month long.  Today, as part of the fun, the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas have joined together with a few of the talented Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge ladies to bring a great Cocoa Mouse blog hop to you!  Make sure you've got your warm drink and some chocolate...let's get ready to hop! 


I'm using this Cookies for Cocoa digi image and I've colored him with Copics. I always put my sentiments on the bottom of the card, but I decided to try something different this time and put the sentiment at the top. The Spellbinders fancy label die was used, and the sentiment was printed using Chocolate colored ink. The cardstock and ribbon are both Chocolate Chip too, and I used some Echo Park Vintage Garden dp for the background. This sort of makes you hungry for some chocolate doesn't it? That's a good thing, because the C4C28 challenge found on the SNS Connection this week is to create a card using "chocolate." Use an image with a chocolate theme, or some papers, card stock or embellishments using chocolate colors. While all the Cocoa Mouse digi images and clear stamps are on sale during December, this is the perfect time to grab those cute Cocoa mouse stamps you've been wanting!


And here is the list of those participating in the blog hop today:


Carol Longacre {you're here}




But wait...there's MORE!!!  We want YOU to hop along with us!  All you have to do is make a card or project featuring Cocoa Mouse and add your direct link to the linky tool below. One participant (drawn at random) will win their choice of ONE free Cocoa Mouse clear stamp set or FOUR free Cocoa Mouse digis!  You have until Saturday, December 17 at 11:30 PM EST to add your direct link...go get stamping!

Love the browns and pretty ribbon. Yes, this would make me very hungry for chocolate but I've just had some of my chocolate peanut clusters I recently made from Emily
recipe (My Little Slice of Bliss).
Just give me a bit and I'll be ready again. LOL

Carol, your card is just adorable.
