"Oh, for the love of CHOCOLATE!" Challenge


I know….you saw the word CHOCOLATE and it peaked your interest. Me too!
Over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, this week’s is anything to do with chocolate.
I had these cute little House Mouse chocolate lovers already painted up. I did a bunch of them about a year ago and did not use them all. Yes, I have quite a large stash of painted images! Painting is my favorite part and I go a little overboard sometimes!
When I saw what their challenge was, I knew instantly what I was going to make!
This is a candy bar wrapper. It is the perfect size for a 3.5 oz. Lindt bar…just happens to be my favorite! Hmmm.. how did that happen? .:)
The papers are Papertrey and K&Company.
I would love it if you would leave a note and let me know what you think. By the way…what is your favorite chocolate?
(Remember...you can click on the images to enlarge)

Oh!!! You are a bad influence! I'm SO tryng to stay away from sweets! This is just adorable! I like Dove chocolates, you know the little bite size ones. Just pop one in you mouth and let it melt! Mmm....

Leslie said...

Just precious. I can't say I have ever met a chocolate that I didn't like. Probably Dove chocolate is my favorite. My daughter didn't like chocolate when she was around 12. She went to Europe for 3 weeks with my sister and the first thing she said she liked when asked what her favorite thing had been so far was . . . you guessed it-chocolate. European chocolate must be so far superior to U.S. chocolate.

Love those House Mice! I'm making a "get well" card with my mice and an eyedropper! I have painted images in a drawer too! Great idea for a quickie card, when the image is already painted!
