Cocoa Pocket

It has been absolutely freezing here in Minnesota.  We can't seem to catch a break!  It is either freezing or snowing or BOTH!!!  I have been making lots and lots of hot cocoa for my fellas.  It really hits the spot on these cold winter days!  I knew I just had to use Penguin Cocoa by Imagine That! Digi's by Kris for today's Flashback Friday over at McMahon Five Designs.  What a darling digital set!!!

Hot Cocoa Pocket Recipe:
Image-Penguin Cocoa by Imagine That! Digi's by Kris (available at M5D)

Accessories-Siponging, Enamel Dots, Machine Stitch, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals, Ribbon, Mini Clothes Pin, Copics, Hot Cocoa Packet, Strong Bonding Double Sided Tape (for the pocket)

I hope you are enjoying warmer weather than me!  I think you should sit back and relax with a nice cup of hot cocoa!  Even if you live in a warm weather climate!  Enjoy the weekend!

Winter Wishes

Hello and Happy 2014!

Today McMahon Five Designs has an all new Flashback Friday newsletter.  The design team was on a long holiday break but we are back and ready to show you all of the oldies but goodies that M5D has to offer.  Many of today's images are on sale, too!  Happy New Year, crafters!

Here in Minnesota we have been hit with freezing temps and lots of snow.  This weather inspired me to use the cute snowman by McMahon Five Designs.  I used the snowflake cuttlebug background in honor of all the snow we are getting!  Don't you just love all of the accessories we have access to?!

Also, I don't know how many of you have an Archiver's craft store in your area, but I was so saddened to hear that they are going bankrupt and will be closing their doors in the next few weeks.  I had a gift card from my husband that I didn't want to go to waste, so I found many deals at my wonderful local Archiver's.  Boo Hoo!

Card Recipe-
Image-Digital image called Snowman by McMahon Five Designs
Ink-Bordering Blue, Printer Ink (black)

Accessories-Dimensionals, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punches, Dazzling Diamonds, Ribbon (from Costco), Enamel Dots, Copics, Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder

I hope your 2014 is off to a terrific start!  Enjoy your weeked!
