Cocoa and Me

( ** Please scroll down for my Greeting Farm post ** )

Hello again!  I hope you're managing to stay warm wherever you are.  We're having extremely cold weather and today is suppose to be even colder than yesterday :( 

This morning I'm sharing a little project I made for a friend.  I found this little pail awhile back at Target in their $ bin.  Well, it was cute, it was cheap, and it was blue (one of my favorite colors) so of course it jumped into my cart!  I used CC Designs' Meoples Dress Up Snowman Stamp set to decorate my pail.  I also used the CC Designs Cutters Snowman Outline Die to cut this cute snowman out.  I colored the snowman with colored pencils but there's very little coloring so that took no time at all.  I stamped his hat and scarf on dp, added some shading, and heat embossed the Liquid Applique.

I also decorated the lid of the pail using the CC Designs Cutters Cocoa and Coffee Die  and a stamp from the CC Designs Winter Chuckles Saying Stamp set. 

I tied ribbons on the handle and filled the pail with hot cocoa packets.  Be sure to stop by the All That Scraps Blog to see what the rest of the DT is sharing today.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs,  Anita
