Holiday Card 44 - Cocoa Penguin

Hi, everybody!  I'm back with a second holiday card today!  It's Day 6 of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! The theme is Fall or Winter - plus Coffee, Tea or Cocoa, of course!  There is only one day left at the hop, so please hurry if you want to join the fun and be inspired!


This adorable clipart image is from Diddybag, which I fussy-cut and popped up on foam tape.  Behind her is a journal card layered onto a patterned paper square.  The white panel is dry embossed with Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry, and I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment.  I finished off the card with some holographic silver leaf trim from my Dollarama stash.


I told you he'd be back!  My elf Eli is very excited about the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and wanted to show off his other favourite snowman mug.  He's joining Diana and her elf Hope at DL.ART's 6th Annual Elf Antics Linky!

I would also like to support the following challenges: 2 Crafty Critter Crazies AG w Animals 4/5; ABC Christmas Y for Your Favourite Thing (critters on my cards) UE; Carlin's Kaartenparadijs Christmas w Holly Leaves (see leaves on cocoa cup) 2/3; Choux Choux Paper Art VOSP2 Home for Christmas (the penguin lives outdoors so she's already home but she lucked out with the cocoa) 2/4; CRAFT Christmas the Last Stretch (one of my final cards for the year - I've been mailing them out and just need a few more) 2/5; Crafting by Designs Holiday AG 2/3; Crafty Gals Corner AG Christmas 2/2; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use a Sticker UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper December UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Use a Stencil UE; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; Cute N Crafty AG 5/5; Dare 2B Artzy Winter 2/3; DL.ART Thankful Thursday December Christmas 2/2 wk1; Double Trouble Thing 1 Embossing (dry embossing), Thing 2 Join Thee Amigos Blog Hop Challenge and Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Thing 3 Let it Snow 2/4; Happy Little Stampers Christmas AG Optional Snow UE; Joy Clair December January Mood Board (I was inspired by the winter drink theme) UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 2/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 2/3; Three Amigos Blog Hop Christmas/Winter/ Holidays UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5 wk1
