On a Chocolate Kick

It's been a while since I made it into the craft room. The whole family has been down with the crud. We went on a mini-vacation last weekend and I managed to pull my back. I'm so glad to be feeling better and crafting again! I have two cards to share today.

For my first card, I used this delightful Willow from Whiff of Joy that I won from the Creative Inspirations blog hop. Isn't she yummy? Peanut helped me pick her out. She's just so cozy. I colored her with Copics.

The papers are from Chatterbox Inc. I used cream Prima flowers. I used a Tim Holtz tiny staple to attach the ribbon tags. This was my first time with this tool - very fun!

I decorated the inside using some new rub-ons that my friend Melissa sent as part of The Latte Lounge Secret Sweeties. At first, I was intimidated by them and wasn't sure what to do. You'll see from my next card that I've fallen in love. They're so much fun and easy to add to a card.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Simon Says - chocolate and cream (and a DT call!)

My second card has a sweet Magnolia baby. Isn't she precious? I colored her with Copics and added glitter. I used digi papers from JLJ Designs. I love pink and brown together. I added pink glitter to the polka dots on the paper to make it more sparkly. The "Sweet" sentiment and swirls are a Basic Grey rub-on. I added flowers to make it 3D.

I decorated the inside of this card as well. You may recognize the "negative" of the scallop circle on my previous card. It just perfectly framed the sentiment. I used Basic Grey rub-ons for the butterflies.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
3. Do You Stack Up #8 - anything goes

Happy Crafting!
