Bloggers Challenge-Happy Birthday and Got Chocolate

 I am late this week for my Bloggers Challenge Post- Sorry- I have been having bad, very bad headaches, and just could not stamp yesterday or this AM.  I am so glad I feel good enough to stamp tonight, I had a blast with my card making!
  I used a new set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela called Got Chocolate.  This is a fun set and I can see using it all year long for Birthdays or a 'sweet note' to a friend!
 
The A-4 card is my Bloggers Challenge card-made for a Birthday. All Stampe FCD except for the Sentiment- it is SU SAB (Happy Moments).  The DSP is from the SU Occasions Mini-Oh La La this paper is so much better IRL than it is in the catalog!!!  I almost hate to use it........ The dounle sided satin ribbon is also new from SU- Love it!  I colored the image and all of the truffles in Copic markers. The sentiment tag is from the Heritage Cricut cartridge and I used DTP (direct to paper) to color it with Choc Chip SU ink.
This layout is from MoJo Monday- for the A-4 and for the circle card.  For the circle card, I cut out Choc Chip CS with the scalloped circle Nestability. I did cut through both layers-because I sewed the Lt side of the card- and the fold is just to the left of the ribbon on the left. The image is stamped on Georgia Pacific CS and colored with Copic markers. OK- all of the little truffles are cut out and applied to the margins with Tombo Mono Multi glue..... This little sweet card is for a friend that is a caterer and had us over for dinner recently- I needed a special card to send her and her husband.  The ribbon is SU.  Copic markers used for this project:
E000, E00, E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, R81, R83, R85 and "0". I used Choc Chip and Close to Cocoa SU markers as well for the tiny little areas...........
Challenges: 
MoJo Monday-Sketch
Flourishes: Pink (anything that starts with a P)
Pile it On-Warm wishes- send joy and happiness
Spoonful of Sugar: Freestyle
Crafty Creations-Celebrations (Birthday to you!)
Stamp Something-Delightfully Delicious
Papertake-Sketch (for the card below)
Creative Card Crew-Punch it (sentiment 'bite' below)
Practical Scrappers-Patterned paper
I had one more image and decided to make a card using the sketch challenge from Papertake (Tuesday challenge). I used the SU scallop oval punch for the bite out of the sentiment. BG is SU Choc Chip and the DSP is again from the SU Occasions mini.  The stamps are the same Got Chocolate set from FCD.  I could send this card to any member of my immediate family and it would be most appropriate.  My Dad is quite the cake baker- so I think I will send it to him (and my Mom)!
My favorite Chocolate is Milk Chocolate and Fannie May- or Dove Chocolates.
What is your favorite Chocolate or candy???


Thanks for stopping by!
