Hello everyone and happy Friday!! 

I'm so thrilled today to be a guest on Grisel's blog!! She's super sweet and talented so it's a big honor to be here today to share something special that I made for the occasion! ;)

This is a cute, easy and not expensive gift to give to someone special and not only during Christmas, it's perfect for all the Winter season! Who could say no to a hot sweet chocolate with a marshmallow on top?? Not me! ;)

I love mixing different Lawn Fawn stamp sets on my creations and this is no exception. The gingerbread boy is from Sweet Christmas, The to: and from: on the tag are from And a Partridge, the mug is from Winter Fox (I made some selective inking here to get the mug) and I used Sally's ABCs as my font. Also the little heart and the kraft paper snowflake are from Making Frosty Friends. What did I tell you? Haha Those are a lot of sets for a little project!

I used one of the kraft papers from Bright Side (Lawn Fawn) and stamped snowflakes on the center of each circle to make it more winter-y using Memento Toffee Crunch and coloring them with a copic (this is a great way to reuse some of your papers!) Then I took some measures and created the box with my scoring board.
Then I took the Lawn Fawn Fa-La-La paper and stickers collection, some peppermint twine and May Arts ribbon and it's done!! I hope you like what I've created!!

Grisel, it was a BIG pleasure to have the chance to make something to share with your readers, thank you so much, sweetie!!! :)
