Sweet Chocolate Challenge

Happy Valentine's to everyone! I know you are probably sick of Valentine's cards by now, but I needed one more for DD who is visiting tomorrow for her birthday dinner! Plus, look who she is bringing:

Chase 3 This is Chase, her new "baby"! Isn't he sweet? A Welsh Corgi Cardigan, he flew in from Montana to Philadelphia on Thursday!

OCC Feb Sketch1Her card was inspired by two challenges, a sketch from Our Creative Corner by none other than Laurie Schmidlin, and to use chocolate as a theme from Stamp Something. So I used some DP with chocolate brown colors in it as well as a chocolate-frosted cupcake! I used a little creative license and added the ribbon at the bottom instead of in the center.


I was circularly challenged today, as my CB and Nesties were being used by my friend! So I made do with some punches--not quite what I wanted, but it will do! The sentiment is from PTI's Green Thumb-- "sweet pea" that I partially stamped in Chocolate Chip; the cupcake is SU's Darling Dots, loaded with some MS glitter. Twill is from Taylored Expressions. And now, some MORE RAK's I received this week! My mailbox was jumpin'!


This beautiful card and bookmark are from Dana. The card opens as well as the little mini card on the front.


This is from my upline, Pennie. Sweet & simple!


This is from Kay--I LOVE this card! Love that Sweet Stems in Tangerine Tango!


And a beauty from Denise! Such pretty colors and the embossing works perfectly with this image!

Thanks, everyone! Now it's off to make my Valentine's dinner!
