Cocoa Warms the Heart

Afternoon peeps.  My card today will cool you down if you are feeling a little hot.

  I am sorry I am not about a lot but I have made the decision to train to be a Soldier in the Salvation Army.  I have been contemplating it for a number of years and have now took the bull by the horns and I am doing it.  The training is taking up a lot of my time.  I will be busy once I have trained with the army so will not get to craft as much as I use too.
