Mug Card Cocoa Holder


Today I have another project to show you. I discovered this mug card/cocoa holder tutorial online here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg_tlCcxv24
My brown paper is SU chocolate chip. The DP is BoBunny. I cut out the inside instructions with a nestie. I used my swirls CB embossing folder for the whipping cream topper and then added some glitter to the swirls with my glue pen. The cute bunny on the front is Flopsey from MFT. The sentiment is also MFT. The hot chocolate is a premium melting chocolate with curry spice in it. It comes from a local chocolatier named "David Bacco". He is a chocolate god and this is one of his brand new melting chocolates for 2009. It's a little piece of heaven.
I actually had some last night after I spent 2 hours clearing off the first foot of snow we got in our first bad snowstorm of the year. Everything was closed today while we continued to dig ourselves out. The kids were thrilled with their first snow day of the school year. And it's not even winter yet!! Now we are going into the deep freeze with wind chills near -25 for tonight and temps getting up to 6 degrees tomorrow. At least the sun will be out, but there's no doubt that we will be having a white Xmas this year:))

  15. OMGosh Emily... just the cutest! I just LOVE ♥ how you created the steam coming off a hot cup of cocoa! That swirl embossing plate I have and with the sparkles... it's perfect!

    Now are you ready for this major winter snowstorm running up the mid-west!?!?!? This calls for a 3-4 cup Chai Tea weather... I have to keep warm! Ha... :) We may get between 16-20" by Saturday AM. My folks live in Southern, MN and we were planning to drive down, but will be traveling after the storm passes, hopefully Saturday!

    So my hubby and I will spend a quiet Christmas together... this will be our first! We always travel... it will be hard! Keep warm... :)
