Crazy 4 Cocoa Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Crazy 4 Cocoa blog hop!  We all adore Cocoa and thought it would be fun to showcase him all month long.  Today, as part of the fun, the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas have joined together with e few of the talented Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge ladies to bring a great Cocoa Mouse blog hop to you!  Make sure you've got your warm drink and some chocolate...let's get ready to hop! (ppsssttt...read all the way through my post, because I'm giving away a freebie, too!!)

I inked up my Cocoa's Latte set, along with a sentiment from the Love From Cocoa set.  I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch, and paper pieced the middle part of the cup.  I used a Sharpie marker to doodle around the edges.  I am SO in love with the Cocoa images!!

Here is the whole list of design team members hopping along today:

But wait...there's MORE!!!  We want YOU to hop along with us!  All you have to do is make a card or project featuring Cocoa Mouse and add your direct link to our linky tool below.  One participant (drawn at random) will win their choice of ONE free Cocoa Mouse clear stamp set or FOUR free Cocoa Mouse digis!  You have until Saturday, December 17 at 11:30 PM EST to add your direct link...go get stamping!

Your card is so cute. Love Cocoa Mouse. Nice idea with going around the outside edge with a sharpie, finishes it nicely. I will have to give it a try.

I just love your card! The papers you choose and then the paper piecing all pull it together so perfectly. I love that the black makes the card pop and then the squiggle lines....SO VERY CUTE!!!

Taylor--your card with its paper piecing is just adorable! As for Christmas--it's not so much what I find under the tree as watching my kids enjoy what they might find . . . :)

Have a great holiday!

Taylor, your card is so so so cute! Love the paper piecing!

My favorite Christmas gifts are the ones that the boys make at school with their own little hands!

Gorgeous card, Taylor. I am a big Cocoa fan.

I am following you now.

WowZers, Such a lovely card. STUNNING papers. Oh so adorable. I'm hoping for a gift card for my favorite scrapbook store.:-) or a charm for my Pandora bracelet ...
Thank-you for sharing your creativity with us today. Happy Holidays :-)

I love how you paper pieced the cup with the same great Basic Grey papers as you used in the background. Your doodled border looks super, too! Whenever I try stuff like that it looks like crap. LOL

I'm hoping I find a new camera under the tree for me on Christmas morning. :)

Enjoy these years seeing the magic and wonder of Christmas through your children's eyes, Taylor. Unfortunately, my guys have outgrown that. They still get excited, but it's not quite the same as when they were younger.

Adorable! I don't have this set yet, but it's on my list! It's perfect for paper piecing! :)
