Now on to crafting!
Today is my second card as a guest at Sparkles Christmas Card Challenges! This week we want to see some "Christmas Cheer" by incorporating a beverage of some kind. I was looking for an image of a Christmas Cocktail but couldn't find one I liked to I chose a warm cup of Hot Cocoa, maybe with a little dash of something stronger in it, wink wink!
