Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge #17!

For this challenge we had one of my favorite winter treats as our inspiration~Hot Chocolate!!!

This is what I came up with:

I decided to use this newly released image from C.C. Designs called Cocoa Emma.  I downloaded it from All That Scraps.  I used this tutorial from SCS called Box In A Bag.  I thought this would be perfect to put some hot cocoa in and pair it with a festive mug : )  The sentiment is from the PTI set Holiday Button Bits.  I will leave a full recipe below.  Now go check out what the other Divine Divas created!  I'm sure everything is fabulous as usual!!! 


My next card is for this week's Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential Challenge ~HATS ON!  I used this adorable image from Sugar Nellie called Miss Claus.  I added some Liquid Applique and I love how it came out!  Just a hint~I've never used Liquid Applique before and was wondering why it just looked glossy.  Then I figured out that you have to heat it for it to puff up LOL.  You learn something new everyday : )  Thank you so much for stopping by, and enjoy your day!

Love these colors - - red white and blue and it still looks Christmas! I like the snowflake pane on the package...looks flocked or something...really cool. And that Liquid Applique effect is pretty neat there too - - love the accents on your perfectly colored Santa girl!
