Love you more than Chocolate!





And that sure says A LOT! :)

Isn't that cute and catchy and fab?!  My card today is for the Deedee's Crafting Challenge Blog - have you stopped in?  This week the challenge is hearts{and did you know if you play along using a Deedee's Digis, you will be automatically sent the $1 digi for the following week - how's that for sweet!}

I was originally making this card for my dd16 who is a HUGE choc-o-holic!  That girl has a serious sweet tooth!   There is a running joke in my house that mine would probably say "I love you more than salad" lolol!  Yes, I love me some greens :)  

However!!!  After making this card, I added the matching DP to the inside of the card and what do my eyes see but these 2 little words:  Forever Yours.   And I just fell in love with those words being in the card!  I {hearted} it with my white Signo pen, added a tiny smile and knew instantly this was NOW for my dh :)  He is such a sweetie and keeps all the cards I make for him ~ although he was at the table with me when I was coloring up this Deedee's image ;)   This was my last sheet nearly full sheet of chocolate brown cardstock and I knew I wanted to use this color, so I had to make one of my favorite shaped cards - elongated!  It's actually a 3" x 7".  I colored this fun chocolate candy image with prismacolor markers and added the sentiment that comes with the image!  My "hearts" are on the DSP and I cut out some hearts from the flip side of the dsp and added those ....... and then drew one :)

Thanks for stopping by today -- hope to see you, too, over at the challenge blog this week!

Blessings,
Kelly

  13. Kelly, this is truly scrumptious! Those papers are so eye-catching, and I love how you laid everything out with the image, saying and over-lapping hearts. The best part, though, is your special hand-drawn heart inside the card -- what a wonderful, personal treat for your hubby! Hugs, Deedee
