Crazy For Cocoa Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Crazy 4 Cocoa blog hop!  We all adore Cocoa and thought it would be fun to showcase him all month long.  Today, as part of the fun, the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas have joined together with a few of the talented Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge ladies to bring a great Cocoa Mouse blog hop to you!  Make sure you've got your warm drink and some chocolate...let's get ready to hop!

If you arrived here from Mary Faus' blog, {aren't her cards adorable?!} you're in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by today, you'll probably want to go back to the Sweet 'n Sassy blog and start the hop from there.  You won't want to miss a thing!  Such fantastic cards and projects to be seen!!!

My card today features the De"light"ful Cocoa Digital Stamp.  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.  I used a glaze pen all over the candle and jar to give it a glass effect.  The candle flame has some sparkle thanks to a glitter pen.  I used The Sweet Stop Sketch #138 for the card design.

Cardstock - Recollections, Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper - Echo Park (Season's Greetings)
Stamps - Sweet 'n Sassy (De"light"ful Cocoa, Do Not Open Til Christmas)
Ink - SU (Creamy Caramel)
Embellishments/Tools - Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, Sakura Glaze pen, Sakura Clear Star pen, The Twinery Baker's Twine (Maraschino, Honeydew), Spellbinders (Petite Ovals)

Beautiful card, Stephanie. I haven't seen that Cocoa image before and I thought I'd seen them all. (Or that I practically have them all)
I see that you are a sister in Christ and I am following your blog now.
