Hot Cocoa

Happy Inspirational Sunday to you! 

Today I have a card featuring the A La Mode - Hot Cocoa.  I love these spindly legs.  I so wish I had them, mine are more like that mug she is carrying, lol.  I love the sketch this week over at MFT's Sketch Challenge, it is just perfect for her.  I used MME - Winter Wonderland 6X6 papers.  I had seen one of the MFT's designers use striped paper for the leggings on a card months ago and remembered that I loved it, so I wanted to try it out.  Dontcha hate it when you can't remember who it was?  But anyway, I love the leggings too, lol.  I used a Martha Stewart Punch to make the cocoa cup and the doily behind it.  And my Fishtail Flag Stax to make the two panels behind the main image.  I also heat set liquid applique for the cocoa on the little punched mug. 

No you are not seeing things, I did poke an extra hole in the main panel, lol.  But the brads were not even and so I just left it there, lol.  I have found sometimes the cover up looks worse than the actual mistake, so in this case, it's just an extra hole, lol.  I did not want to start over.  What do you do when you make a mistake like this? 

Please head on over to the Sensational Sunday post and see what my fellow DT members have made.  If you leave a comment, you could win a prize!!!  You might also want to take a peek at the new things Laura has added to the store.  Fun stuff!!!  And there is still time to play in our challenge this week, Anything Goes!  You could also win prizes for playing!!!  AWESOME!!!

Whatever you do on your Sunday, take a moment or two to just take it all in.  Enjoy a moment or two.  You will not have this day back again.  I'm trying to remind myself to do this every day.  At work, shopping for the holidays, making cards for a D.T., etc.  Just trying to stop and enjoy the journey.  And letting go of little mistakes like extra poked holes. lol.

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.
