It's time for another amazing challenge at CRAFTING WHEN WE CAN!

Our challenge is "Based on a Song" and it's sponsored by Karleigh Sue Designs.  The image I have is called "Let Me Perk You Up".

This image I guess makes most people think of coffee but since I don't drink it I thought of hot chocolate.  That in turn made me think of the song "Hot Chocolate" from the movie Polar Express.  It was such a cute movie.  I found this cute ticket when I searched the web.  It's small and in the corner but it says "Believe".  I used to tell my kids that if they wanted presents they had to believe in Santa.  Now that they are older the believe is more spiritual for us all.

I hope you will pop over to the CWWC blog and check out all the inspiration from the DT.

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!

She's a rather sassy lass wrapped up for the winter Robin and like the whole theme with the movie ticket as well. And yes to have to carry our beliefs, it's so important in life.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
