All you have to do is leave a comment and a way for the DT member to contact you if you should win. Each designer will be using RANDOM.ORG to pick the lucky winner. Emma and Each Designer will announce their winners on THEIR blogs on Wednesday March 21. So remember you have 16 chances to win! ! All you have to do is leave a comment on ALL blogs for more chances :)
EASY PEASY!!! GOOD LUCK;)


Today I get the pleasure of showcasing the Do the Cocoa Motion stamp set!  Who doesn't LOVE Hot Chocolate!! :)
I was inspired by my fellow design team members to make a little gift of hot chocolate to give to someone special! :)
I found this cute card box in the Silhouette Store.



I used the Hot Cocoa mug from the Do the Cocoa Motion set. I (once again!!) paper pieced it by stamping the image on some pink paper and then stamping it again on to white paper.  It really is fun!

The sentiment is from the new You Are Perk-fect  set.  I masked off the stamp a couple of times to get the sentiment to fit onto Emma's Stitched Heart die from the 100% Sweetness set.  The small heart is from the Anyday Crossword and Bingo set.  I stamped everything in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and inked the edges of everything in my favorite Tim Holtz distress ink in Tea Dye.  I finally got one of the distress ink blending tools with the foam applicators and it really makes a HUGE difference!  Who knew!?!!

Well thanks for hopping along with us!! 

Next in line is Mr Trell's Fabulous blog!
