Mmmmm, chocolate!

This month’s image for the From the Heart Stamp of the Month challenge is a cute snowman with his warming cup of hot cocoa. What more do you need on a cold winter’s day – apart from some  snow! Somewhat lacking in my part of the world this year.

Materials used: SAM_2624(watermarked)
From the Heart stamp set – Snowman and Cocoa
X-Press It card
silver mirri board
X-cut bag die
Trimcraft Silent Night designer card pack
silver mirri card
silver ribbon
Copic pens

SAM_2621_1(watermarked)The image on the front of the bag is just matted onto silver card. The little tag uses two images, the snowman from the second image has been fussy cut and attached with gel glue.

Both the snowmen have glitter added to their hats.

Since this is a gift bag I have used it for a gift of hot chocolate and mini marshmallows- yummy!SAM_2622(watermarked)

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
