Polly wants some cocoa!

HI Stampers!!!

Today is Blogger's Challenge Day! We were to do a sketch challenge this week. Our Challenge "mom, " Lisa, provided us with a great sketch that I will use again and again, I'm sure!
I'm not sure why it is so small.....I uploaded it on large setting.....argh!!!!

Here is my take on it:
I'm in a hurry today...can't get into too much detail - I have a Stamp Camp tonight and I still need to make some goodies :)

The designer series paper is from Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper in the mini catalog. This paper has a metallic sheen to it.....wait until you get your hands on some - it is divine!! The stamp set is my beloved cold and cuddly. I absolutely adore that set!!! Polly, the polar bear, is stamped with whisper white craft ink onto kraft card stock, as is the hat and cup of cocoa. Now that could be any hot drink you desire....but I am a hot chocolate girl, through and through! I blinged up her hat, steam and iceberg with dazzling diamonds and a two way glue pen. The ribbon is soft suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon.


See Polly?

For the brad placement, I used three white grommets and I placed large red rhinestone brads from fire round rhinestone brads in the center - more bling!!!!

Leave me some love, I would love to know what you think of Polly.

Make sure you check back - my next stamp camp is awesome - if I can toot my own horn ;)
