Yummy Cocoa

Hello peeps!  Today I used an image by MelJen's Designs called Penguin's Cocoa.  Isn't that penguin just the cutest thing?  He actually looks warm and toasty sitting there with his mug of yummy cocoa.  He's one of the images in MelJen's Designs latest release, which you can find here



I used my copics and prismacolor pencils to color this image.  The "Let it Snow" sentiment is a freebie from Melissa and you can find it here.  I added some snowflakes with pearls and used Glossy Accents on his beak and feet and on the cocoa, too.  I sprinkled Glamour Dust on his hat and the snowflakes for some sparkle. 



Be sure to stop by the MelJen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog to check out all the beautiful cards made by the talented DT.  We also have a new challenge for you...it's the sketch that I used on my card.  I hope you find time to play along with us this week in our challenge.



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
