Cocoa Holder ~ You Are My Joy {1st Post}

Oh my goodness 2013 is quickly coming to and end and here I am sharing another Christmas idea.
I found this cute stamp at Michaels on clearance and just had to make a cocoa holder with it.
I'll put this cutie away and make some more for next year.
The image is so sweet I just had to share it.
It reminded me of a few things that filled me with joy this year...
First off going to the zoo with my daughter. It is something we do just the two of us. Each time we buy a cup of cocoa and wonder the zoo looking at the animals. Especially the sweet little baby ones.
And it also reminded of the joy I feel just hanging out with loved ones this time of year.

*Girl and bear stamp called Snow Kiss from Penny Black
*Sentiment is from the That's a Wrap stamp set from Flourishes
*Borders from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set fro Verve Stamps.
*Studio G glitter glue.
*Sequins from Darice.
*Copic markers R37 and G05.
*Stazon Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Offray.

May your day always be filled with love.
