Peppermint Hot Cocoa Thanks

Hi friends! Only ten days until Christmas, can you beleive it? You certainly wouldn't know it based on the weather here in NY. It's been in the 60's nearly every day, and my roses are still blooming! I'm really loving this unseasonably warm weather.

It's time for a new challenge at Stamp Ink Paper, and this week it's a theme challenge: Thanks. This is a two week challenge so you have plenty of time to play along. 

My card features some products from Lawn Fawn including the patterned paper. I stamped my images and sentiment from the Love You A Latte stamp set with Memento ink, and colored them with Copic markers. The little snowflake on the cup is from the Winter Penguin stamp set.

I'm playing along with three other challenges today. The Holiday Coffee Lover's Blog Hop wants to see a creation with coffee, tea or cocoa. The Lawnscaping Challenge theme is Tag It, and at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is also Tag It! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Love You A Latte, Winter Penguin (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Crumb Cake (SU)
Patterned Paper: Let's Bokeh in the Snow, Snow Day (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Real Red (SU)
Markers: Copic
Tools: BS, Rounded Tag Die (Clearly Besotted), Love You A Latte Dies (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Real Red Woven Satin Ribbon (SU), Silver Twine (Michael's), Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks for stopping by! Please visit the rest of the Design Team at Stamp Ink Paper, and we hope you'll play along, too!
