Warm and Cozy Sweetness!

Back again with some sweetness.... Cocoa (or coffee) sweetness that is... I hope you all had a fabulous day off... my boss was nice enough to send me home an hour earlier than closing time... so I came home to the DH and girls and we went to do a little shopping... came home and started to whip up this cup of sweetness....
This was my first time making this mug card... inspired by this post here... there is also a link to the template if you fancy a cup... it was really fun to make and I won't say easy peasy like snap your fingers type, but it was sorta easy... just depends on what you envision... =D
Instead of slipping in a packet of cocoa i did a pull out card... the ribbon is attached to easily pull out the card and with a little imagination it could reflect steam...
Here's a pix of the pull out card fully out... isn't the DP for the mug base just so psychedelic... LOL... i thought it was great... hehehe! tried to coordinate the DPs to each other... i think it came out okay... this creation is for the following challenges:
1. LPSC # 41 - Sketch ~ the front of this mug is based on the sketch over at LPS... using different shapes
2. Diedrich Dare # 10 ~ a mug of inspiration...
Hope you will hop on over to the challenge blogs and play along with them... =D
I'm so SUPER excited over some great news that I can't share with you just yet... but I can tell you i'm grinning ear to ear again.... keep coming to visit and you are bound to get the word... =D until tomorrow friends, have a wonderful day!
