Hello and Happy National Cocoa Day Crafty Friends! Today is day 13 of my Countdown 2 Christmas Series, my project features the super fun Stampendous! Cocoa Hot Tub Cling Stamp along with the Marshmallow Friends Cling Stamp.  I was super excited and honored when Stampendous! invited me to create a few projects for their July 2019 Catalog🙂  I wanted to share a similar/same card with you all.  Just making a a semi-shaker card with Shaved Ice, perfect for National Cocoa Day wouldn’t you agree:)

HOT COCOA FUN FACTS

The National Cocoa Day is celebrated on December 13 this year. This food day is a perfect occasion to indulge yourself with a cup of hot cocoa or some chocolate confections.

Image result for hot cocoa pictureCocoa powder often referred to as simply cocoa is made of cocoa solids which remain after the extraction of cocoa butter from cacao bins. Cocoa is rich in flavor antioxidants. It is a key ingredient of chocolate. Cocoa powder is used to make hot cocoa, also known as hot chocolate.

Hot chocolate can be made with cocoa powder, shaved chocolate, or melted chocolate combined with heated milk or water, and sugar. The first cocoa beverage is believed to have been created by the Maya people around two thousand years ago. Of course, it has undergone considerable changes since then.

To celebrate the National Cocoa Day, make a cup or two of cocoa to enjoy. Here is a simple hot cocoa recipe. Whisk together 2 tbs of cocoa powder (unsweetened), 1 to 2 tbs sugar, 2 tbs milk and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Make sure that sugar and cocoa are dissolved completely.

Whisk in 1 cup of milk and heat over medium heat until hot, whisking occasionally. Stir in 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. If you have lactose intolerance, you can substitute cow milk with almond, soy, or rice milk.

NND-FROSTY FOLKSPURR-FECT PRESENT-1-1

Hello Crafty Friends!  I am so excited to be a guest designer for Newton’s Nook – Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week!  This is an annual event hosted by Newton’s Nook for the Holiday season and I am so happy I have been invited to be part of it.  My projects today feature the Frosty Folks Stamp Set and the Purr-fect Present stamp set.  I just love snowmen and this set reminded me so much of my sisters:)  There are 5 of us and this sentiment just cracked me up!!  Although I know “they” wouldn’t admit it…I think we all have a bit of flakiness in us, lol:)

NND-FROSTY FOLKSPURR-FECT PRESENT-2

I created my background with bright Distress Oxide Inks and love how cheery it came out! For bells and whistles I added a touch of Glitter drops:)

NND-FROSTY FOLKSPURR-FECT PRESENT-4

The Purr-fect Present was just the right size to create a handmade tag.  I created the same background as I did with the card just turned one side upside down and colored the present a different color.

NND-FROSTY FOLKSPURR-FECT PRESENT-3

As an added touch I used the bakers twine that Newton’s Nook Designs uses when they send our goodies to us, tied up with a pretty bow.

Thank you so much for joining me today for this fun event, I hope you enjoyed my projects.  If you would like to see how I created them, you can watch the tutorial down below or over on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here🙂
