Pass the chocolates

Good morning hope everyone is ok and here we are at the middle of the week already!

Today I have another of the the new Lili of the Valley releases which I got at the NEC:

I thought this was quite a versatile stamp and could be used for a lot of occasions even Christmas if you coloured them in Christmas colours.  I have used my Prismas to colour.  The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders and the border die is X Cut.  The papers are First Edition from the "Daydream" stack.  I have made the buttons using my Epiphany button maker.  Ribbon and twine from stash.   I will enter the following challenges:

Pollycraft - Mmmm Choklit
Creative Belli - Three Shapes
Divas by Design - Stamp Something
My Mum's Craft Shop - Stamp It
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - 3-2-1 (Three Buttons, Two Papers and One Ribbon)
Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes
Shopping our Stash - Circles or Dots (My stash is paper!!)
Craft Your Passion - Monochromatic

I am going to get some DT work done today and probably some gardening to make the most of our lovely weather in case this is our summer!!  Thanks for looking and any comments you leave it is always nice to read them, take care xx

Breaking News Alert!!!:

I have just read an article on Yahoo that research in California has shown that eating chocolate makes you slim - Whoppee - I'm off to the shops to stock up!!!!!

nope sorry eating chocolate cannot make you slim, if it did I would be a size zero, but I'm not. Nice idea though
