Meowy Mousemas - Hot Cocoa Pocket

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to Day 4 of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! We would love to see you over there with your winter/holiday projects using images of coffee, tea, or cocoa! The hop runs from December 11 to 18 and anyone can join!


Today I am sharing another hot cocoa pocket!  Yes, I've made quite a few of these! This was the first one I made and it's a bit different than the other ones I've shared. 


I used an adorable image from Imagine That... Digis by Kris called Meowy Mousemas. I used the pre-coloured image because it already looks so cute!  I die-cut the image with a stitched oval (Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval Stackables) and inked around the edges with a red ink pad.  The patterned paper is from MAMBI and I inked it with Broken China Distress Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Poppystamps You Melt My Heart. Behind the image I added some gorgeous red Christmas ribbon. Inside the pocket is a packet of hot cocoa and a candy cane.


For those following the adventures of my elf Eli, today I found him trying to make friends with my cat Snowie.  She's doing a lot of sniffing, but in the end, a friendship was not formed.  Eli had limited success trying to buddy up to my cat Kiwi here, but there is still one more cat that Eli will try to befriend, and that's Honeydew, so stay tuned!  Eli is linking up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli and his friends, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, Loopy, Elfin, and Hope, in their funny elf antics!

Cute card, those will make great little gifts. I have no idea how you were able to get that adorable picture, I am sure it was not easy but fun!!

scrAPpamondo said...

Oh, poor Eli, no cats want to have a friendship with him! Snowie seems a bit suspicious with her sniffing! He is a lady and Eli gets too chummy with her :D
I have knew that Eli is looking for a little love with an other elf, ehehe... ;) I'm curious...:D
How cute your pocket cocoa card, love so much the colours and the sweet image, and the lovely bow is so warm!!

Elfin says Hi to Eli. I love the image on the hot cocoa pouch Thank you for joining the DL.ART Thankful Thursday December Linky Challenge. Katie-DL.ART DTmember

SHartl said...

Wow is Eli brave to make friends with your cats! My Loopy doesn't want anything to do with animals, except for stuffed ones. My mom, who adopted our dog Toby, brings Toby over every other week and he tried to grab Loopy and run through the house with her. So she is NOT interested in being anywhere near dogs or cats! Your cocoa pouches are so cute and fun that I picked up a box of cocoa packets today and am going to try my hand at some of these pouch cards myself!

Sandy said...

What a great idea! Love the cocoa pocket. Happy Holidays! Thank you for joining our challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. - Sandy, DT Sweetie

I just love these cocoa cards you are making... and your cat is so sweet.. does yours climb your christmas tree? mine does, even though shes recently been very ill and diagnosed with renal disease, she still seems to have the energy to get up the middle! Thanks for sharing with us this week, over at Glitter n Sparkle, Vic - D.T x
