Hot Chocolate and Lots of Love!

Gotta share a couple cards with you, this first one using this weeks Card Postioning Systems sketch. 

The sponsor this week is Flower Soft and since it is kind of cold here, this cup of Hot Chocolate looks like the perfect thing. 
The Hot Chocolate topper is by Flower Soft and then I accented it with some Flower Soft, making it look even more yummy.  The two colors of Flower Soft that I used are my new most favorite, Earth and Peony Pink. 
The card base is Core Impressions by Core'dinations. It has that great embossed design it in already and the side trim is new by Pink Paislee and makes for such an easy and elegant accent. 
This card is my Unscripted sketch card for this week and it represents by newest supply purchase from Emma's Paperie.  Yummy We R Memory Keepers papers and gotta love that "love" word sticker by KI Memories. 
Notice my little hearts on the side, red piece? I just picked that Cuttlebug embossing folder up at Michaels in their new Valentines supplies.  It works perfectly with Core'dinations cardstock.
And, of course, some photos to share...
We recently went to the Santa Barbara Zoo. We love this zoo, it is small and just the right size for a quick little visit. They have a artificial turf covered hill for the kids to slide down and here our youngest grandson is trying to get the hang of sliding. 
 Notice how the tongue seems to help with balance!
Big sissy is trying to give some helpful pointers. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
