Chocolate Coffee

     When the cold days of winter hit hard, as they are doing on the East Coast today, it's always a debate for me whether to make coffee or hot chocolate.  This morning my pot is filled with chocolate-flavored coffee and that solved the problem.  :-D

     We have a new challenge at Through the Craft Room Door starting this morning and our sponsor is Paola Jofre, who generously supplied digis for the team to use.  You could be the winner of the wonderful prize package she's offering if you come and play along.  The theme is "Anything Goes" so what do you have to lose?  I used her image called "Warm Wishes."

     This was a pretty simple design and I used feathers again, this time taken from an old goose-down pillow  which needs to be tossed.  Doesn't that count as being 'green aware' by recycling?  :-D  The image is colored with ProMarkers and the dies are from Spellbinders and QuicKutz.

     Sadly, this will be my last DT card for Through the Craft Room Door.  My term is up and I'm going to really miss the wonderful gals at TTCRD.  On the other hand, I can go back to playing in the challenges as an entrant instead of a DT.  :-D  Thanks so much for stopping by.and Happy Stamping!  NanaConnie


  1. I like the way you solved your dilemma. Love that blue backing your your brown and white. I could use the hot chocolate this morning. We are in the middle of a blizzard but we've got the fire going so we are all good and comfy. Have a good day.

  2. Yum!! This is a really fabulous make here NC!! Love the blue and brown color combo and what a great use of a recycle item!! :) Yay for you!

  3. I'd call that great recycling!!! I've never even thought to do that with the feathers from a pillow!
    CUTE card as always and of course I love the blue. Great image too!

  4. Oh I do love my hot chocolate, never tried chocolate coffee. A gorgeous card, love this colour combination.
