Speaking of cocoa, we also have our wonderful marshmallow snowman this year, soaking in his Cocoa Hot Tub! This cute card from Alison Heikkila is colored so beautifully.
And this card by Cards and Coffee Time’s Tina Smith is just stunning! (and really shows off the shaved ice she put in the shaker card background, too.)
Be sure to visit their blogs and leave them all some love!!
What could be sweeter than National Cookie Day?? December 4th is celebrated by some companies that love cookies. You can celebrate with a free cookie at these!
