Hot Chocolate Hug

Hmm, on second thought, a hot chocolate hug sounds kinda drippy.


Happily, today's card is drip-free.  I used the latest Freshly Made Sketch:


Fun sketch.  It was fun to see the design team's takes on the sketch, they all had the sentiment in a different place and different ideas for how to use this sketch.  I like it.

I'm also going to enter this at SUO Challenges, because this week's challenge is anything to do with treats.  I think hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows on top would qualify as a treat.  Particularly if there's a cookie or scone to go with.  I like a good cuppa hot chocolate, though honestly I drink hot tea much more often.  And if the weather STILL isn't cool enough to warrant hot beverages, the AC in my house can (and sometimes does) make up for that.  Heh.

Well, today is yoga class, which I'm liking a whole lot more than I thought I would.  I have to try to limit the time I spend doing things like downward dog because it's still so hard on my wrist, but even so I've noticed that I've already started improving flexibility.  One day I might be able to touch my toes without trying too hard :p

Cheers, y'all!

Hot chocolate is like a hug in a mug. It squeezes you from the inside out. Oooo, that's bad.

Been so crazy that I haven't gotten to comment on your blog lately. LOVE the colors!!! Nice card!
