{KKS157} Baby, It's Cold Outside!

And that rings true here in central Alberta! Brrrrr!!! But I am so very happy that we are going to have a good amount of snow (crossing fingers) for when the big guy arrives! December 1st! Can you believe it?!?! Today we are heading into the local theatre to watch a FREE presentation of Polar Express, which so happens to be one of my favorite Christmas movies ever made!! And we never saw it in the theatre, so I am so excited!! I was at the Twilight movie a few weeks ago and saw a sign that was advertising this free movie, so I grabbed 5 tickets for our family! One of those 'at the right place at the right time' kind of moments :):)

Today, our Kraftin' Kimmie challenge theme is 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'! I used one of my special little guys for this one, Willard. Is he not the CUTEST!?!?! I {heart} him! He looks positively upset about the current weather conditions! Just fretting over his hot cocoa!
I bought this really interesting little hot cocoa cup and mini whisk set at Homesense. I've been waiting around for the right inspiration to come along, and this week's challenge and little Willard were the perfect fit :)

The cup has a removeable insert, and I traced the insert onto some patterned paper and attached the DP to the insert with 2 sided tape. I stamped Willard onto X-press blending stock, coloured him with copics  and fussy cut him out. He was attached to a green DP oval, matted with espresso CS. I added Lil' Inker holly dies.

The cup came with the brown bow, but I added the little tag (Holiday Trinkets) and button tied with red jute twine (Ribbon Carousel).

The dome lid is a separate compartment which holds the mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. The clear plastic cup holds a styrofoam cup (hidden by insert) with a packet of hot cocoa!

Here is the insert taken out of the cup, so you can see a picture without the glare off the plastic.  I added some glaze to the cocoa and old stickles to the sweater.

Be sure to play along this week for your chance to win! See the KKS BLOG for more details on this weeks challenge! And don't forget about Kimmie's HUGE retirement sale! Many stamps are marked down up to 75% off!!! And once they are gone, they're GONE!
