Hey all!  How's it going?  It's getting closer to the BIG DAY...are you ready?!  I know we aren't!  Still have some gift cards to buy, and I need to get my cards ready and out the door!  *GASP!*  I know, this is bad!  
Speaking of cards, here is the one I made for Humor Me Wednesday at Catch the Bug:

Since Friday is National Cocoa Day, I thought this image from the Snowman Cocoa Set would be perfect for the celebration!  I paired it up with this fantastic glittery cup and mug patterned paper from the 12x12 Mrs. Claus's Kitchen pad from DCVW.  This is one of my all-time favorite paper pads!  Sure makes me wish I had bought more than one of them.  :(

I used green card stock from Recollections to mat the patterned paper and image layers.  The red piece going across behind the image panel is a very subtle red plaid from the same collection.  The image was colored with alcohol markers, and I gave some sparkle to the white parts of his hat with Stickles.  There is also some clear Wink of Stella on the body of the snowman.  The sentiment comes from the Winter Fox Lawn Fawn stamp set.
