Hot choklit....Mmmmmmmmmmm!

This weeks challenge over at Cupcake is 'Happy Hour' - something to do with drinks,
When Faye mentioned tipsy hot choklit (Mmmmmmm!) I immediately thought of my 'Willow with hot chocolate' stamp from Whiff of Joy...

I coloured the image with ProMarkers, so that I could enter this weeks challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, which is 'recycled'. As you can see I have recycled a couple of pieces from a pair of jeans that were too small for my son.
The paper is by Stampin Up, my fave 'ski slope' collection.
The pretty edge around the oval was made by punching the smallest flower from my boho blossoms punch several times and gluing them around the oval on the underside.
I'd also like to enter the challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenge, their theme is called 'stitch it up' - to use real or faux stitching. I opted for the latter by paper pricking around the card and dragging a navy marker through the holes.
Easy peasy!

Today started quite dull here, but it's absolutely beautiful now, blue sky too! :)
Today is my 10th wedding anniversary, unfortunately we have a sick son at home (stomach bug/cold) so we haven't been out anywhere today, but it's been really lovely to just spend time together at home.
Hubby went to the shops this morning and bought 2 yummy sirloin steaks, so I cooked us steak, herby boiled potatoes, fried onions & mushrooms in a stilton cheese sauce with blackcurrant cheesecake for pudding.... YUM!
