Hot Cocoa Mug with Santa Baby by Frank Garcia

Hello my friends <3 div="">
Back today to share some Christmas in July fun with Prima
and their new release designed by Frank Garcia, Santa Baby. I know , I know, 
too early for Christmas right?!?! But when a DT package arrives with this in it, phew
the ideas start swirling! Plus it's never too early to start on Christmas projects for me!
Because i procrastinate, or procraftinate lol. I have 2 projects to share, but
I will start with the mug here that I just had a BLAST creating. 

But i have to share something with you all, and this is something I have noticed
big time in my years of crafting. Projects like this one, that I like , ME, and I 
spend loads of time on are usually not as well liked by others. 
Whereas the projects I'm not sure of , or think aren't good enough turn out to be 
my most popular!!! It's quite bizarre, and even honey can attest to this lol.
So i guess that says..... i have bad taste LOL! 
Or it says " stop trying so hard." Or the lesson i take from it the most is
" just do what you want, and let the chips fall where they will."
I can't worry about how well received things will be , I just have to keep chugging along. 
So here is my Altered Coffee Cup turned Hot Cocoa Mug! I hope you like it!

 I used almost exclusively Franks designed items with Prima. Memory Hardware and everything, 
but I can't resist using Finn's items on everything i create! the Waxes and Art Stones. 
 I have a tutorial coming up on how I cover objects like this in paper. 
Making it easy to add gorgeous pattern paper to any surface! It does take some time, but well 
worth it to me. 

 And inside my cup, i just made a little winter scene. Lots of fussy cutting. Thats 
always the first thing I do when i get a paper pad!!!!!! And i look forward
to it so much! just cutting out those images ! 
I hope you all like this project and won't get me for posting early on Christmas :)
