Chocoholic

Hello, my name's Mynnette and I'm a chocoholic....this is where you all say, "Hi, Mynnette!" in very sympathetic tones. Because we've ALL been there! Which is why the color scheme over at Colour Create is so fabulous for this time of year! Who DOESN'T want chocolate for Valentine's Day?! Okay, if you're allergic, I understand and completely empathize. If you just don't like chocolate, I cannot be your friend. Okay, I'll be your friend. But I cannot agree with you.

BUT, I digress...as usual! Back to the challenge. Colour Create has given us the color scheme of light and dark browns with white and/or cream. FABULOUS!

And here's the inspiration photo~

I drooled when I saw it. And then I ate some chocolate. Hey! Don't judge--you just did the SAME thing! ;D

Anyway, I have a set from Stampin' Up! called Eat Chocolate that I have NEVER used! What is UP with that? Well, perfect time to get it out, don't you think?! And guess what I made with it!

THIS~

Details~



What are your thoughts? Now, that really is deep dark chocolate brown, not black. Despite the horrible photography, I was extremely pleased with how it turned out--I feel that it totally fits this challenge to a tee! I hope you come and play along--I can't wait to see everyone's choco-rific creations! Happy stamping! :)

you did make me laugh with your post today Mynette, I think your card fits the challenge perfectly I love the sentiment panel. I have a friend who would appreciate that so I think I will make my own version of it.

What is your favorite chocolate? I know a lot of people love European chocolate but I am quite partial to Hershey's...ANYTHING Hershey's! I am a reformed chocoholic...had to stop because of the weight but OMG do I LOVE chocolate. OK, I didn't completely stop....but I have learned to have great control when I am not around it LOL!!

Oh boy Mynnette, you got us all going with this one! That card looks delicious....umm I mean Gorgeous! You know I love polka dots so this is just a perfect card to me. Chocolate and Polka Dots!!!

(Oh yeah. Did I mention my puppy's name is Almond Joy?) hehe she is dark chocolate and white!
hugs,
Ellen
