Cozy Cocoa...

To remain young while growing old is the highest blessing -German Proverb

This is the Last JBelle Tuesday Challenge of the year...so sad!!! We are closing out this round of Design Team Members and today is the last day to apply for the next 6 month round. With the Holidays upon us we will be taking a little break from challenges...but we will return for a (shhhh, it's a secret) Special New Year's Eve Bash!!!! We went for a simple sketch this week to finish off the year...

I combined the sketch challenge with K Werner's Color Inspiration for this week...Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Very Vanilla...Mmmm, so warm and cozy!!!

I fell in love with this stamp when I first saw it, a Super Special Thanks to Tammi for the image!!! (Go look at her AWESOME calendars, the little bear, the cutie in the hammock...he has a very special home on my desk!!!! THANKS TAMS!!!)
