She challenged us sistahs to make cards showing our love and passion for something we really enjoy...
The possibilities are endless so I decided to indulge myself and make cards that reflect my 'darkest' passions.....mmmm.....mmm....*C*H*O*C*O*L*A*T*E* need I say more? !! :o) .
I wanted my card to exude a nostalgic 'old' feeling,
'cause as I was creating it I realized that this stamped image resembled the very first gift my husband bought me...a beautiful satiny and velvety heart shaped box of chocolates...I was only 15 yo then, and only met the man -who later in life became my husband- a week before, but still kept that special first gift as a memento of our first date :o)
The stamp I used on my card was gifted to me from a very special on line friend. She knew I had only part of the set (bought at a garage sale) and she surprised me by helping me complete it.
(big thank YOU Jeanette!)
Unfortunatly I cannot recall the name of the set
(the one you see at the bottom)....if any one of you reader knows its name will you please post it for me?? txs!
*Thanks Barbara for providing the stamp's name*
