Mmm...Hot Chocolate!

When I saw the latest Caardvarks challenge--chocolate--I just had to play along. I'd seen this mug template several months ago and filed it away for use in the colder months. I thought it'd be perfect for this challenge.

After cutting out the mug and adhering it, I ran it through the Cuttlebug. I added the snowflakes and some red rhinestones, the ribbon, and the "sweet" tag & jingle bell. As a final touch, I slipped a packet of Swiss Miss inside. I'll give this to my Secret Santa this Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, don't forget to sign up to win my Christmas blog candy!

Paper: Bashful Blue
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls, snowflakes (Jolee), rhinestones (The Paper Studio), ribbon & cording (Michael's), jingle bell (Hobby Lobby), tag (SU), hot chocolate packet
