Crafty Calendar January Challenge

 I'm back again with my second DT card for today.
 This time it's for our January Challenge at 

Crafty Calendar

sponsored by Sheepski Designs.

 The theme for this month is Add a Sentiment.

The image I have use is Hot Chocolate, coloured, as usual, with Copic Markers. The background is embossed with an embossing folder that was a magazine freebie some years ago.- it makes me think of a warm woollen jumper- nice and cosy! 

Pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Crafty Girls have been up to this month, then why not play along? It's a nice easy theme and we'd love to have you join us- the more, the merrier!

Thanks for visiting today- enjoy the rest of the weekend
