Warming Winter Cocoa

Hello to everyone.  I can't believe another week has vanished and its time for a new Challenge at The Outlawz.

This week our Friday Colouring Challenge theme is Drinks - to celebrate Bartender Appreciation Day, but it can be any kind of drink.

The team have provided some fabulous inspiration for the color challenge. 
To join us you can use alcohol markers, other markers, coloured pencils, or any other colouring medium on your creation. 
The only requirement is that you colour an open line image. 

December Outlawz Sponsor: 
Ppinkydolls Art prize: 3 digis.
I will be coloring some of these stunning images over the next few weeks.

I have had this image, Winter Cocoa, for quite a while and have not coloured her before.  She was first published here.  Now available here from Sami Stamps
