It’s the perfect time of year to get comfy with a warm cuppa! Cocoa or coffee, what’s your pleasure?Even down here in sunny Florida, our days have become chilly and rainy these past few days. When I saw this week’s inspiration from The Card Concept #167, Cuppa Cocoa or Coffee, I was inspired by these cozy post-Christmas colors, and those delicious mugs of flavorful chocolate!
