Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

I have a little secret and I am sure my coffee caffeinated friends are cringing at the moment, but I am not a fan of coffee.  Crazy, but true!  I am more of a Coke and hot chocolate, kinda girl.  However, when it comes to hot chocolate, I am quite the picky snob.  Although, I do prefer to think of myself as a connoisseur.  :)

My all time epically wonderful hot chocolate is Galaxy Hot Chocolate!  I first discovered this chocolaty goodness in Scotland about 14 years ago and I have never looked back!  It's super hard to find stateside, but I do have friends who take pity on me and send me a canister every now and again or bring it to me when they come to visit!  (Ya, I am kind of spoiled.)

Needless to say, I was beyond thrilled when I heard that December 13th was National Cocoa Day!  Who knew?  So in honor of my newly found favorite day, I made a cute little hot chocolate inspired card for the Hop!  I was totally inspired by Chris Dayton's version of this little cutie so I totally CASE'd it.  =)  Thanks, Chris!
