Cocoa's Keeping Cozy!

Hello and Happy New Year to all my delightful friends and family!

I love this sketch from Korin at The Sweet Stop! I wish I had not gotten sidetracked and attached my ribbon before placing my circle! I guess my creative juices decided to go a different direction! But I love this sketch (I know I already said that but I really, really do!!) and I really wanted to follow it to the "t" (boo-hoo) so I may just have do another card!

Isn't Cocoa the cutest, I mean for a mouse you just gotta smile! This happens to be a digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and Korin Sutherland is the illustrator of this darling rodent. Have you EVER used the word darling in a sentence with rodent? This may be a first for me. I have to admit the photo does not do it justice, you may have to click to enlarge to see some of the elements (like the Glossy Accents and the Crystal Tiny Twinkles). Well, thanks for looking and I hope you are keeping cozy in your neck of the woods! You can catch all the ingredients to this card at the end of the post.

Paper: BoBunny (designer paper); Neenah, bright white card stock, Bazzill cardstock; Stamps: The Greeting Farm (sentiment); Cocoa, digital image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps; American Crafts ribbon; EK Success, Scallop Diamond border punch, Marvy Uchida, scallop circle punch; Spellbinders, Nestabilities Classic Circle Die; Crystal Tiny Twinkles (Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit); Ink: Palette, black (sentiment) and Copic Markers to color are cute 'n cozy Cocoa!
