We have a fabulous new sponsor, My Favorite Things, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Cuppa Cocoa challenge!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate to use at My Favorite Things!


Believe it or not these are the first sheets of paper I have removed from my Basic Grey Persimmon paper pad.  I was late getting this collection and it was time to get cracking on Christmas so this week's challenge seemed the perfect time to use some of this fabulous paper.  I paper pieced my cup of cocoa and added some fussy cut marshmallows on the side.
