We’re winding down to the end of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – tomorrow is the final day! I kinda feel like this kitty today!
I think the dog days of summer are matched by the kitty days of winter, don’t you?! >^.^<
This is one of the few snowy wintry items in my crafty stash. I only have it because I got it as blog candy from the very generous Tina. (Thanks again!) I fell in love with this cute little digi from Sami Stamps at the Cat Lovers Hop and it’s still on available for free HERE, if you’d like to get it and see the rest of the adorable Cats in Cups set she has. I like using dark copies of a die behind a light copy to give it a shaded edge. The frame around the sentiment that I made up and printed out are just the ends of the die cut off and adhered together.
Here’s a better angle to see the Wink of Stella on the snowflakes. Just a pinch for a nice finishing touch!
Oh, and I was looking through my photo gallery and found a picture I had taken a few weeks ago in anticipation of National Cocoa Day, but forgot to share:
I also wanted to try using STENCILS to sprinkle powdered sugar over cocoa for designs, but I got mixed results. Mostly because the cocoa was too hot and melted the sugar…
Those Cafe Mocha m&ms are AMAZING, by the way! Although my favorite seasonal treat are still Ghirardelli peppermint bark squares!!

Love the die-cut frame you used for the most adorable image…love the colors too. Beautiful card.
OMG, this is the cutest of them all. Love your card and what a super background. I guess it is a die, such a great one.
D.Ann, This is AMAZING!!!! How fun and cute at the same time!! Thank you for this sweet card and sharing it!! Happy Holidays !!
Fabulous Card! LOVE IT!!!
Such a sweet image! I feel like that kitty too 😉
OMGoodness, D.Ann, we did use the same image haha! And our cards look so different! I love how you coloured this! And I meant to mention in my blog post that it was a freebie and forgot – I’m so glad you did! This image is adorable! Beautiful card!
Great polka dot cup. Doesn’t he look so comfy on top of it. TFS
Love it! Thanks for the tip on where to get the free digi! And that snowflake die… yum! Love your card!
What another fun card, D.Ann, love the kitty napping in the cup! TFS and Happy Friday!
Love that cute image teamed up with the hilarious sentiment!
Cocoa beach…too fun.
That die cut frame is so pretty! Love your card and the colors you used. I’ve been to Cocoa Beach a few times … been while, tho.
Can you imagine all the chocolate lovers on a cocoa beach?! Great photo. And what a sweet card! Love that die, and that sweetly sleeping kitty. Great sentiment, too.
Heehee! Too cute!!
worst cup of coffee yet–kitty flavored! 🙂 so cute and love your photo!
This is just so cute! I love that kitty! (That’s how they are – they lay around everywhere!) 🙂
Awwww, that sleepy cocoa kitty is so cute and I love the colors you used. I’m not sure if I saved that free digi during the cat lovers hop or not but I hope so! As soon as I get a new printer I’ll be able to try my hand at digi stamps. I can see one little heart in your cup of cocoa, but either way the powdered sugar added extra sweetness, so it’s all good.
