Chocolate is Sweet N Sassy

Hey there! I can not believe it but I have another cold! This is completely crazy. This time I can't taste anything which I guess is both good and bad. Anyway, the challenge on SCS today is to use something chocolate on your card. Since I can't taste chocolate right now, chocolate ink, ribbon and pencils will have to do LOL.

I colored this image a couple weeks ago with prismapencils and gamsol but just had not had a chance to put it into a card. It worked out well today because since I am feeling pretty lousy I did not have much energy even for stamping. I used a spica glitter pen on the snow and painted the primas with shimmerz.


stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Winter at Home
CS- choc chip, white, soft sky dp, afternoon tea dp
accessories- taffeta ribbon, sewing machine, primas, coffee shimmerz, angel wings shimmerz, prismapencils, gamsol, SU oval punch, shimmer brads

I will be drawing the winner for the high hopes blog candy tomorrow so be sure to comment on THIS post if you have not already done so.

Also, I will be starting a new blog candy drawing tomorrow so hope you can stop by.

Have a nice weekend!

Sorry you are not feeling well - I have been sick all week too. I love the card though - I live in Texas and long for snow. I like the use of the DSP with the lines. Very nice!
