Warm Cocoa Wishes

Happy Thursday, everyone -- and Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the US! I have a quick sample to show you today, and then I'm off to spend time with my family! :)

Today's preview is of the new Cookie Crumbs set called Warm Cocoa Wishes. Diane's stamps are always so cute, and I especially love her snowmen and winter images! I used the mug from the set to make this tag for some homemade cocoa. One of the gifts I like to make during the holidays is homemade drink mixes. They're perfect for friends, neighbors, teachers, and bus drivers! :)

To make the tag, I paper pieced and cut out the mug, then I popped it up on dimensionals. I applied some Frosted Lace stickles to the whipped cream. I rounded the top corners of the tag, but they're hidden by the ribbon.

I'm taking the day off tomorrow so I can spend time with family, but I'll be back on Saturday! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by today! :)

Have a great day!
Christina
