Hot Chocolate...Mmmmmm!!

I got a coffee machine for Christmas and now I can make espresso, cappuccino & best of all, frothy hot chocolate, to my heart's content!!

So I was especially pleased to see that a few card challenges this week used this theme as the inspiration to make a card, the colours of hot chocolate are just yummy, marshmallow, cream & brown, it's making me want one just typing about it!!

This card, apart from the sentiment, uses stamps from the 2009 winter magnolia collection & I think it looks a little bare however this is deliberate because as soon as there's a big 'O' birthday to celebrate I'm going to whack it straight on the heart in great big glittery numbers!! Lol!!

So onto the challenges...

Simon Says Stamp & Quixotic paperie are both running with a Hot Chocolate theme...
Charisma Cardz are asking for cards in a pink, brown, toffee, cream combo...
Just Magnolia are asking for cards with paper pleating for their special monthly challenge...

Ooh it's so late, it's taking me soooo long to make cards at the moment I don't know what's up with me, so just a quickie post tonigh to I can get me some shut-eye...
