Mystery Chocolate Drink

Today as a dark wind howled outside the Guild Hall walls, the Lady Commander of Copics and I were huddled inside, nestled deep in a pile of furs. It was a sure sign that winter was coming. I went to the kitchens to prepare some hot cocoa for us and was surprised to see a penguin bustling around, already making the chocolatey drinks.
“Who..who... are you?” I stammered.  
The penguin looked up and smiled, not saying a word, and then went about preparing the beverages. I looked to Olga, the head house gnome, who was standing against the wall nervously wringing her apron in her little hands.
“If he wants to make some cocoa, I see no harm in that, mi’lady,” she said shrugging. 
This card was created for the Creative Card Crew “Christmas Joy” challenge that is happening now. Make a Christmas project for a chance to win a prize from our sponsors!

I started this card by printing out the penguin cocoa image from Imagine That. The papers were all from the Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love paper pack. The sentiment was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Snow Day” set. This actually went together fairly fast, earning me +66 speed XP. 

The envelope I stamped using the Dylusions “Christmas Borders” set and then quickly coloured with Distress Markers.

This card will warm up the following challenges:

After the hot beverages were ready, the rotund penguin brought them to my sister and I by the fire. He then waved and left out the front door without a word.
“Well that was odd,” I muttered.
“What’re you complaining about, Sister?” Angela said, sipping her hot chocolate. “This is the best cocoa I’ve ever had!”
We never did find out where the bird came from or how he got in the Guild Hall kitchens without anyone noticing. The Lady Commander was right though, he did make some delicious hot chocolate!
