Pocket Letter - Winter Cocoa

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing a Pocket Letter with the theme of Winter Cocoa!  I used pre-coloured digis and some puffy stickers!  I wanted to make this quickly - no time to colour - but I did fussy-cut all the images! The ribbon is from DL.ART - Christmas Green. This is a gift for an older, non-crafty relative, and I plan to fill the back with cocoa, teas, and chocolate! I still haven't caught up with my blog visiting but I hope to be around to see you soon!

Here are each of the pocket cards shown individually, with details. Each ATC measures 2.5" x 3.5", except the first card, which measures 5" x 3.5" and occupies two pockets.

For those of you following the adventures of my elf Eli, here he is taking it easy, hanging out in a small potted tree at Walmart! He looks so cute there and he fits in nicely!  He really liked the other elf at the top of the tree and thought he would spend some time getting to know him. I'm linking this to the 4th Annual Elf Antics Linky at DL.ART!

Love your pocket letters, it's such a good way to showcase the different stamps and products too, I quite often have to click away and find the things you've used. Hope your technical issues are now sorted?
