SNSS Crazy 4 Cocoa Blog Hop!!



Happy Thursday everyone~

Welcome to Sweet ‘N Sassy Stamps Crazy 4 Cocoa Blog Hop!! We all adore Cocoa and thought it would be fun to showcase him all month long.  Today, as part of the fun, the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas have joined together with a few of the talented Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge ladies to bring a great Cocoa Mouse blog hop to you!  Make sure you've got your warm drink and some chocolate...let's get ready to hop!






I am a kind of over for Christmas/holiday cards so I decided to start ahead for Valentine’s Day! (at least it’s ahead for me, lol) I used this cute image, Cocoa’s Heart Digi and coordinated with the sentiment from Valentine’s Day Greetings Digi. The image was colored with Copic markers and the mat was sponged with ink to soften the edge. The card was designed with EP Holly Jolly Christmas DP and Dots & Stripes DP. To finish off, I embellished the pennants with buttons and the baker’s twine.





Here is the whole list of design team members hopping along today:

All your shades of pink and red are terrific! I especially like how you added the dots in the "background" of the heart. I'll have to remember that! :)
