Crazy 4 Cocoa Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Crazy 4 Cocoa blog hop! We all adore Cocoa and thought it would be fun to showcase him all month long. Today, as part of the fun, the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas have joined together with e few of the talented Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge ladies to bring a great Cocoa Mouse blog hop to you! Make sure you've got your warm drink and some chocolate...let's get ready to hop! Be sure to scroll to the very end of the post to read all of the details on the prizes!
So...I know, I know my Cocoa card is showcasing a warm day at the beach instead of snow and all things hoiday but seriously how could I resist using this charming little image from the Beach Bum Cocoa stamp set?! I know it's just barely the end of December but I'm already ready for the warm days of summer and I had a blast creating this card with the tiny banner (from My Favorite Things), flowery paper (from Jillibean Soup), and darling Cocoa in the sand!

The butterfly is from a Martha Stewart punch, the sweet twine on my banner is also from Sweet 'n Sassy, and the embossing on the green cardstock is from a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder. And the entire image was colored with Copics!! I hope you enjoyed my card and it made you think of warmer days to come!!

Want to see more Cocoa? Then join the rest of the team on today's blog hop! Here's the entire list!

Not only is your card totally fabulous, Kim, but it makes me yearn for the warm, sunny days of summer! (after Christmas of course!) Love the texture, the patterns, the sunny colors, and the way you colored the sand! Cute, cute, cute!

Well, considering it's summer in the southern hemisphere now, anyone living there would think your card is entirely appropriate! :) You've done a super job coloring this fun image.
