SPCC: Color Combo #14 & Moxie Fab: Around the House

SPCC offered up a "guy" color combo this week of Ballet Blue, Soft Suede, and Basic Grey. My card could probably go for about anyone I would think though (although the DH has already said that it should be his). Then Moxie Fab World wanted projects that feature "around the house" items.

The inspiration for this card was the little sentiment that I found in a blister pack I had bought awhile ago at Big Lots from Around the Block. The "Happiness is Chocolate" just fit the color scheme so well! To go along with my sentiment I figured I needed some hot chocolate in a mug...and as I was playing around with my Quickutz Silhouette last night I found a cute little coffee/cocoa/latte mug set on the digital design store. It still amazes me that that little machine can cut these TINY little details out so well! I almost have to watch it that I don't ruin the die cut more than worrying about the machine! But I am learning and having fun in the process. I also pulled out my glue pen for this card...why hadn't I used it before? Makes life so much easier! :)

I hope you enjoy!
