February 2020 Week 3 Theme of Cocoa for 52 CCT blog

Hi, welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity. This posting is about cocoa or hot chocolate as the theme for week 7 of 2020 or 3rd week of February at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog.

Can you believe that this weekend marks the 7th of 52 weeks in 2020? Cray-cray!!! This is a busy print-filled card filled with those cozy images associated with cocoa and winter-time. Remember this is a Christmas cards only blog.

Further in the posting, I'll share a bit about all the different vendors, but here's the 1st look at my design team inspiration card for 52 CCT=

More details about how to participate, rules, deadlines, bragging rights, other DT cards, etc. can be found using this link=

more scanned photo variations=

notes about supplies and vendors=
a. the "Ugly Sweater" stationery was a notepad;
b. "cozy" alpha stickers
c. the steaming cup of hot chocolate/cocoa is a rub-on transfer from a set by Echo Park
d. the cut-apart journal card was part of the cardstock/paper collection from Bo Bunny along with the pinkish red print under it and the reindeer print background paper.
e. reindeer clothespin was 1 of 4 dark stained (w/ 4 natural wood) purchased at Wal-mart this past season
f. kraft cardstock, gems, white snowflake, and cording have been in my stockpile as well as the buttery cream-colored cardstock serving as the base (red paper is used to block out light of the scanner of my printer).

linking or sharing to these other challenge blogs and Facebook groups:
a. Jingle Belles; started Friday, Feb 14; theme of Rudolph the RED Nosed Reindeer; lots of red
[my card's scanning has toned down most of the reddish tones making them look either pinky-coral or brown; however the 'ugly sweater' stationery sheet in reality has reddish tones, the paper under the journal card cut apart is a tonal red; the brown metallic border on the cut-apart card is actually a dark red like the lettering for sleigh ride and hot cocoa; and the green reindeer print cardstock has a bit of the dark red metallic foil visible in a few small spots; 2 of the letters in cozy--the c & o--are dark reds and then the cup of cocoa is the boldest bright red.]

b. Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog #19; February Anything Christmas Goes

c. 613 Avenue Create; #230; since Feb 2; Anything Goes w/ Optional Twist of Banners & Bows
[I do have the cording tied in a bow but no banner, so this will just be an AG entry.]

d. Mixed Media Creativity group on Facebook; a sharing mixed group of artists and crafters

e. Paper, Paper, Paper, & Design Team Calls on Facebook; a sharing group site for crafting bloggers

f. Bleeding Art challenge blog; February challenge; starting 2/15; Anything Goes mixed media
[my card has the clothespin w/ stained wood die-cut of the reindeer, cording, glitter foam snowflake, ugly sweater stationery sheet, other cardstocks & a cut-apart type journal card from the cardstock collection, etc.]
