A cup of cocoa for you

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I've had a pretty relaxing week. I took some time for myself, I spent a lot of time with my lil one, did some baking, some crafting... Due to the covid situation this year we probably won't be able to spend holidays with family, but I do want to at least send them a card to let them know I'm thinking of them. So the other day I made a list of all the people I want to send Christmas cards to and I realized I still need to make quite a few. Yikes! I will be busy making those over the next couple of weeks. Have you made all your cards yet?

So, what comes to your mind when someone mentions Christmas? My minds immediately go to Christmas lights, the smell of cinnamon, ginger and oranges and cocoa. Love me some of that. There is no better feeling than snuggle under the blanket, drink cocoa and eat some of those yummy Christmas cookies. Mmmm...

Did you know that the fall/winter coffee lovers blog hop started at the Coffee loving cardmakers blog? I love playing at their challenges. :)

This is also the perfect time for you to get some more Christmas cards ready if you still need some.

Most of the time I use rubber/clear stamps on my projects, but when I found this (digi) image I just knew I need to make a card with it.

Isn't this little gnome soooooo cute?! I love this lil fella, he makes me smile. :) You can find this cutie here.

I coloured the image when I was at my parents' place, so I used my mom's prismacolor pencils for colouring (and I just realised I forgot to add some details on the pom pom *ooops*). Usually I choose papers first and colour the image to match the papers, but this time it was the other way around; hence the non traditional Christmas colours on this card. I used several different embellishments on my card - lace, pearls, wooden snowflakes... 

Well, that's it from me today. See you again soon! :)
Stay safe! xx
