National Cocoa Day



It's time for another Coffee Lovers Bloghop! Lots of fun....lots of prizes!  Tea drinkers and Cocoa fans are also welcome -  I belong to this second group...tea and cocoa!  So in honor of today being National Cocoa Day I inked up this sweet little fox from Lawn Fawn enjoying a cup of hot chocolate!




This card is for my daughter's birthday tomorrow.  She loves snow......she loves hot chocolate.....mmm foxes not so much......but two out of three should work!  (The inside says "and warm birthday wishes")

I actually made this card yesterday afternoon using the sketch from Global Design Project.  I decided to take a bit of a snooze before writing up my post and slept right through the deadline....so much for a short nap!  But here is the sketch I used:
    
                                                    

You have plenty of time though to join in the blog hop!  Amy and her crew do a wonderful job putting this all together.......enjoy!
