More Cocoa, Please!

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio 'LilyHot Cocoa', freebie sentiment. Cardstock: DCWV textured blue and 'winter mat stack', Night of Navy, GP 110 white. Ink: Copics. Accessories: white flocking, glitter snowflake brad, Adornaments fiber.

These digital images by Pink Cat Studio (PCS) are not only adorable and easy to store, but they can also be re-sized to fit any sketch like this fun sketch #35 by the Midnight Madness team. And PCS even has accompanying digital sentiments for free!

Like most of the Midwest, we've been experiencing frigid temperatures for the past week. It's so cold that the snow squeaks when you walk on it and you don't dare go outside without being completely bundled up like Ralphie (I can't put my arms down!). Despite this, we actually took the girls out sledding since it was the first 'sleddable' snow (barely) of the season:

We also found this pre-made igloo, the perfect winter playhouse:

Lily is definitely ready for the weather; not only does she have her hot cocoa, but she's also wearing her flock-trimmed winter gear:

Stay warm and keep that hot cocoa steaming!


  1. Darling! Those bright colors look great! Nice pics of the girls too!

  2. Oooooo Jessica what a joy this post was to read and view. Your card is just adorable and those fibers make me want to curl up in them with my own hot cup of cocoa.
    Your snow/sledding pictures are so fun..I hope you put those in a scrap book..what a CUTE layout spread that would be. Your could even use this weeks sketch for your sledding page..just a thought :) Well done using the sketch this week.
