Hi everyone

I am here to share a card today which I made just because I felt like it.  It is such a long time since I have done this. I loved making this card too.  Well, who would not, when you think of the combination of Chocolate, Live and Live Crafts and Shabby Chic!  What more could a girl ask for!  And working with lovely materials, well that was just the icing on the cake.  Actually there is a little story to this one, and I will keep this very brief:

I had severe lack of mojo.  Inspiration was just zilch.  Then I saw the Challenge at LLC, and it suddenly came to me to get my lovely goodies out  from Live and Live Crafts and play.  I keep these together in two boxes (one for papers and one for embellishments).  Actually two bags as well!  Well, this is what got me going again.  I think old Mojo had gone on strike and was saying 'its time to use these lovely materials' Haha.  I must admit I am chuffed with this card and it really has inspired me no end to keep going.

So, onto the card:

The lovely topper is from Kraftyhands (frantage added)
Tim Holtz die-cut (Frantage added)
The papers, shabby ribbon, hearts, charm, Frantage and  flowers and pleated ribbon (just seen peeping through at the top left and right ) are all from Live and Love Crafts
Everything else is from my stash.

I would of course like to enter it into the Challenge HERE at Live and Love Crafts where the theme is entitled 'Chocolate'

Thanks for looking,

  15. Hi Judy,
    Hope you're well and enjoying this sunny BH weekend. I totally understand where you're coming from; it's nice to create something just for fun once in a while. This is gorgeous; the cupcake looks delcious and I love the shabbiness of this card. Good to see that you also found some use for the cake charm! Thanks for playing with us at LLC.
