Hot Cocoa Anyone?

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Did you have a good weekend?  Mine was a busy one.  The ravioli making was actually very fun.  I'd never made pasta before!  I have a 'pasta' machine for my clay, but I don't think it's the same lol!  Anyway, the Butternut Squash Ravioli turned out YUMMY : D

Now my hubby is sick : (  But the good news is that I don't have to cook lol!  As I write this, it's evening in California.  Just about time for me to fill up my Tinkerbell mug with Starbuck's Hot Cocoa.  Yes, it's true... I've become a hot cocoa snob!  When did that happen?  I used to enjoy Nestle's... *singing* N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestle's makes the very best... chocolate!  If you are young in years, you will not get my song, but those of us who are a bit older will remember : D

I decided that it was time for me to haul out my Cricut and cut out a tag for today's project.  I've used A Cuppa by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  Isn't she darling?  And look... she already has her Starbuck's Hot Cocoa!!!

 I've used my usual... copic markers to color this cutie-pie.  She's accented with Stardust Stickles (my fave Stickles!).  I made the pearls with my Graphite Viva Decor Paper Pen.  I love blue and black together : )

Here's another view to show you how scrumptious the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz is that I sprayed over the entire piece!  I may have overdone it just a tad hee hee...
Here's the Recipe for this oh-so-cute-tag!

Flower and Jewelry:  Hobby Lobby
Stash:  Ribbon, Lace, Cardstock

HI Lori.. let's just say YUM! That ravioli sounds delicious and I have NEVER made pasta before either... surely it really is easier to just buy it?? Hope your DH isn't too sick - mine is currently dying from man-flu and thinks his throat is the sorest anyone in the whole world has ever had :)
I love your tag, the blues are just stunning with the black and white! Enjoy your day x
