You make life SWEET!

Another card from me and a quickie because Steve is getting fed up with me spending more time with you guys than him, lol!!

 

I just love hot chocolate!  I'm not allowed any chocolate at the moment (on a restricted diet to try to get my blood pressure down - boo!) so probably not the best card to make because now I NEED some choccies!!!  Don't you just love this image?  It's a digistamp from The Paper Shelter and you can buy it here and it only costs $1.50 - what a bargain!

I followed the sketch over at The Paper Shelter challenge blog and I'd also like to enter it into the Totally Gorjuss challenge for no DPs, Moving Along With The Times' and Sweet Stampin challenges both for chocolate (no explanation necessary!). 

Better go - the hubbie is calling!!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: The Paper Shelter hot chocolate, Pink Petticoat sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents: gingham ribbon from stash
Tools: Nestabilities rectangle die, hearts embossing folder, Fiskars border punch

Hi Mary, what a great and mouthwatering card. I just don't know how you do it, life without chocolate! I guess if you have to, it's a different story. Have a great (crafty-free?) weekend!

Nina Macaulay said...

Great card Mary, another crisp clean one from you, just the way I like'em :O))
Fab motiv, and so nicely coloured, you really are a pro!
What a shame no chocolates for you :O( heres a tip I learnt 'back in nam' tehee, drop a couple of drops of vanilla essence onto a normal sticky plaster and put it on your wrist, sniff it when you feel the erge for some sweet chocolate, and your brain will then be satisfyed! It works a treat!
Happy Easter to you and hubby :O)

Hugs Nina x
