Two Cups of Cocoa



Here are my two cards for the March Rudolph Day challenge! I used a SNSS Cocoa Mouse image for both cards, coloring one in green and one in red. I added felt and punched cardstock snowflakes with brads and scalloped borders on both. The embossed panel was done at a stamp meet, and I cut the piece to make a panel for each card. Sorry, I don't know who makes the folder. The sentiments are from wooden stamps I bought at my LSS recently and they have no name on them. The red & green foiled/embossed papers are from Artsylicious.

It's going to be a 2-cup cocoa day here in PA as we're bracing for more snow .....again :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

You better make your cocoa very hot...sounds as if you'll need it. Boo on the snow!

Both are so festive and cute! Every time I see Cocoa I just want to give him a hug! Great cards for the holidays.
This just has to be the last snow up that way! Y'all have had more than your share by far.

Y'all need to stop it with that snow stuff already. You're just out of control now. Two cocoa day indeed!

I love your two sweet cards! I like how you changed up the color schemes on both. They are wonderful.

Despite my post today pondering if this is a stupid hobby (that was really last night's deal) I do plan to stamp and create and make Rudolph cards. Now let's see if reality gets in the way of that.... !

I had to have this sweet mouse set, also. I have used this one lots. You color much better that I, and I just love those stacked snowflakes. The folded papers are a real dream. I want to make a trip to our favorite new store, but the sideways bursts of flurries have me being cautious. Grrrr!

Bonnie said...

I can't decide which color cup I like the best! They're both charming! Stay warm and safe, Carol!

So cheery and bright and fun, Carol. Hope you're staying warm!

Just darling and I can't make up my mind which is my favorite, so I'll have to call it a tie. They have downgraded out snow amount to just 1-3 inches and 50 degrees by Saturday so hopefully it will melt away. Enjoy tomorrow.

Love both cards Carol. Cocoa was one of the first images I did in my first coloring class.

Hope the weather does not get too bad...you have had your share. Personally, I am ready for winter to be done! I am sick of it.

Both of these are too cute Carol! I love that little mouse in the cup, so cute and adorable. I love the embossing and the papers you used on both. I hope you didn't get much snow. It snowed here most of the day, but only laid in the grass a little, then later started melting. So we dodged another one thank goodness, but wasn't the wind terrible today?! And speaking of hot chocolate, I'm going to make myself one now. lol Stay warm my friend. Hugs

FAB design and layout. Great use of matching embossing folder to DP. Adorable mouse and snowflakes.

MaryH said...

Two real cuties. I adore this little mouse peeking out of the teacup. Love the way you colored & made him look different on each card, and the pretty embellies you used. I have that EF, and don't know who the maker is, but I have it written on my sample, if you ever need it. It's a larger EF. Hope the snow was just a dusting. TFS & hugs
