Peppermint Mocha Anyone? 24

Mona Pendleton | Friday, October 2, 2009 @ 12:03 AM | , , , , , ,

Hi Girls! TGIF :) I am so happy that the weekend is almost here! So much is going on in my neck of the woods - The Creative Keepsakes scrapbook convention & World Card Making Day to name a few :) Sooo much to do - Sooo lil' time :( Still undecided about driving 45 miles each way to attend to the convention BUT I will be participating in World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 3rd! Be sure to stop by to see what I have been up to! This week, Dawn over at The Raspberry Suite is hosting a color challenge, RSCC17, featuring GORGEOUS colors & Taylor over at Taylored Expressions, is hosting a FUN sketch challenge for you to play with, TESC84! If you are wanting to see more eye candy, I recommend visiting BOTH of these sites as well as their Design Teams! I'd love to know if any of you have been to this years Creative Keepsakes convention & if so, what were your "MUST HAVES?" Be Sweet!

Here is my Peppermint Mocha set:

You know how I love gift sets! Rather than creating a template of sorts, I kept my gift set SUPER simple! I bought this inexpensive snowflake mug at my local grocery store & filled it with a few goodies: a few packets of Peppermint Latte mix, several chocolate covered peppermint sticks & a lil' cellophane bag full of mini marshmallows! Just add a lil' ribbon & button to dress it up! Makes for an inexpensive gift! Who doesn't like a BEAUTIFUL mug to sip their Peppermint Latte from? :)

This is my 1st Stampendous Changito! Isn't he cuuute? I just want to pinch his cheeks! I can see more of him in my stampin' future :)

I colored the lil' guy in using Copic markers: Dull Ivory E43, Warm Grey W-1, Strong-Red R46, Moon White BG11, Colorless Blender 0, Maroon E77

Ingredients Used: Stamps: Stampendous Changito Cocoa, PTI Polka Dots Basics, Stocking Prints Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Basic Black, Copic Markers: Dull Ivory E43, Warm Grey W-1, Strong-Red Moon White BG11, Colorless Blender 0Maroon E77, Paper: SU Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, PTI Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy Sprinkles: Cuttlebug Snow Dots embossing folder, Spellbinders Scalloped circles & circle, Basic Grey brads, EK Success Diamond Lace punch, Offray ribbon, PTI twine, generic buttons
