Hot Chocolate Mug

Happy Friday everyone! Boy it sure feels like winter here today! It is only 26 degrees out and I am FREEZING! :) I saw this cute hot chocolate mug on Stampin' & Scrappin' with Stasia and knew I wanted to make one. She has the template on her site if you would like it. I actually created this one using my Gypsy. I used the mug from Gypsy Wanderings and some images from George to create mine. I embossed the front side of the mug with a snowflake embossing folder and then ran white ink over the embossed parts. I cut the snow from PDDU at 1 inch and trimmed it to fit around the edges of the mug. The tree and snowman were cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 3 inches and 2.5 inches. I used my hide contour feature and hid the design on the snowman. I chalked the snow and snowman to give it a little dimention and outlined the snowmans scarf. I definatley need a mug of hot chocolate today! Have a Happy Halloween everyone! I am hoping to do more project this weekend.....but I am not counting on it. My son just had knee surgery yesterday and needs my help most of the time. This morning was the worst for me. He is in so much pain that it just breaks my heart! Oh, to be a MOM! Wish me luck! Hugs!
I am going to enter this in Emmas Throwback Thursday challenge.
