Holiday Card 37 - Hot Cocoa Happiness

Hello, everyone! Today is the start of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! The theme is Fall or Winter - plus Coffee, Tea or Cocoa, of course!  I'm also finishing off Beccy's Place and her Month of Holiday Cards Challenge! Today is the final day and the theme is Do What You Love! I love snowmen, hot cocoa, and making cards, so that's what I'm sharing!  Thank you to Beccy for the wonderful month of inspiration!


I used my Cottage Cutz Teapot Snowman for the first time, and he's so cute! The patterned paper is MME Winter Wonderland, and the sparkly red strip is a scrap from yesterday's card. I added a sentiment from AC Digitals - Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa and a little cocoa cup puffy sticker from my Dollarama stash.  I finished off the card with a few snowflake sequins.

I would also like to support the following challenges: Archi-scraps AG Christmas 1/3; Cardz TV 76 AG 1/3; Crafting by Designs Get Ready for Christmas 3/3; Crafty Catz AG Twist Too Cute 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Make Your Own Background UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Use a Stencil UE; DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d; If You Give a Crafter A Cookie Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the candy canes) 2/5; Kitty Bee Designs All Wrapped Up Dress Warmly 1/2; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 2/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 3/5; Simon Says Stamp Work-It Wednesday Ho-Ho Holidays 3/3; The House That Stamps Built Repeat Impressions Anything Goes Challenge ~ N2818 3/3; The Outlawz Monday Greetings GCC112618 Add Some Red 3/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5 Wk 2

Love the teapot snowman Kitty, what a cutie! Your card is fabulous... there are so many wonderful, festive elements. I love the sparkle from the strip of red glitter paper at the bottom of the card, as well as the little scattering of snowflakes. The winter scene in the background is really cute too. Fabulous!
Cheers,
Beccy

Oh my goodness, KT! This is so happy! I love the snowman popping up from the hot chocolate pot, and your pretty soft colors! So sweetly "country" and full of joy! I found your subscribe by email option, and have signed up that way - changing how I do a few things these days. Also, I love how you have the challenges lined up on your blog. Did you make a separate "featured post" for each day, or did you use the "link List", or "blog List" options? It's a great idea! Thank you! hugs, de
