Hot Chocolate

Hello My Friends,

I am late posting today.  We had about 7 inches of snow here in Maryland, over the weekend and I was outside making snowballs and throwing them for my dog Duncan to try to catch.

I had another project that I was going to post today but when it was snowing I decided to make a project to go with the snow.  

This is a SVG File from Dreaming Tree and right now it is free when you spend $9.98. 

Here is another view:

As you can see from the photo this is a large cup that would hold a lot of gifts.

Here is the tag, I actually made the tag first and chose the paper to go with it.  

Recipe for this cup:

SVG File - Cup of Cheer
Paper - AC Cardstock and Lori Whitlock "I love Winter" White glitter paper from stash
Twine for tag -  Won from DLART
Chalk from Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking/Ink Set
Stamp - from stash
Silver Trim - from stash

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

DLART January 2019 Linky Challenge - ATG
Not Just Cards - January Challenge
