Thank you for Chocolate!


Hope everyone had a great weekend, and 'Hello' to my new followers, its lovely to see new faces and I hope you continue to enjoy your visits here.

Our new sponsor at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is Flonzcraft, who do some fabulous vintage stamps, and as you know, I do like my vintage.  Our challenge at FSC this fortnight is 'Sentiment/Sentimental' and as this card has a sentiment, it might just give you the inspiration to join us.  My card today uses stamps from Darkroom door to create the scene and sentiment, background script is Tim Holtz.  My chocolate loving friends, is a Flonzcraft stamp, coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut, then mounted onto foam pads.  My flower and leaves are TH Tattered floral strip.
I have made this as a Thank You card for DD to give to a friend, for turning up with a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine, when boyfriend had to dash to Ireland due to family illness, (fortunately a full recovery was made).  I had intended printing the sentiment 'Thanks for being there' but the printer is playing up - so she will just have to write it!  Anyhow, I'm sure it will still fit the bill at Vintage Stamping  Challenge which is 'Thank you'.
I am also entering this at:
  Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon
  Amusing Challenges - Anything Goes
  Craft your Passion- Add Text/Sentiment
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

That's it for now, the sun is shining - lets hope it continues!

Your little 'scene' is so beautifully vintage Avril - you are so wonderful at this genre.
My internet was returned to full service last week but it's taking me ages to catch up - please accept my apologies! Hope your printer recovers - technology can be such an annoyance!
