Yummm hot chocolate




Yes...hot chocolate.... that is the wonderful theme this week at Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club. And I was lucky enough to be chosen as the Guest DT this week - woohoo. So of course I had to use the lovely image of this sweet fairy mixing her yummy hot chocolate. This is a Prairie Fairy image. I added liquid applique to the whip cream and liquid glass (crystal effects) to the entire mug to give it a porcelain effect, but the photo doesn't do it justice. The sketch is from Die Cut Dreams Challenge, but I had to tilt the image as I printed it too large and it covered nearly all the background layers - you can't even see my striped dp behind her. And the Charisma Cardz challenge this week is Fairies. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. I'm on canteen duty this weekend. We have to volunteer in the canteen if our kids play hockey, so I'll be there for 8 hours tomorrow, and was there last night. We had to do 30 hours since we have 3 kids in hockey - OMG, but it's all for a good cause and we'll be all done after this weekend!!!!
