Nothing Like Cocoa with Friends

Good morning my crafty friends!!

I just realized its been a couple weeks since my last post!  My oldest daughter scored a leading role as Susan Walker in her High School production of Miracle on 34th Street * proud of her*, and the week before Thanksgiving, our house was all hustle and bustle with play rehearsals and performances .  After that, we went right into Thanksgiving where we hosted 13 here this year at our home.  Crazy but wonderful!!

Needless to say, my crafting had been put on hold!

Felt good to get back in the saddle and whip up a cute little creation using this absolutely ADORABLE ginger from Whimsie Doodles.  He was offered in their Christmas section as freebie.  Thank you WD!

This little cutie is colored in Copics *of course ;) *.  I then added some liquid applique to his marshmallows and puffed them up with my new Recollections heating tool *thanks hunny*.  I also added some liquid applique on him to mimic frosting.  On his button nose and candy cane, I added some glossy accents.  The card stock is a mix of Paper Studio and Bazzil.  The snowflake embossing behind him comes from a Cuttlebug eb folder.  I used a Fiskar Punch for the krafty border.  The delicious gingham ribbon is from Paper Studio and the button is from Paper Studio's Dress It Up Christmas button collection.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek.  Hope you'll visit again real soon!
