Mmm...Chocolates...Again...


This isn't the first card I have made with this stamp and after the fun I had colouring it  won't be my last either. Last month there was a sale at Sassy-Designs Inc where they were selling their digital paper packs for 25cents each, so it would have been rude to visit and not buy any lol. Of course I had to buy the sets called, Amanda, Newport and Orlando lol and several others to keep them company. The papers for this card are actually from two separate kits, Christy and Heirloom, and I love that the colours match perfectly.

I have used all scraps for the card except the backing papers, the teal card was in the snippet folder as was the crumb cake card. Now I realise I may be revealing too much here but all my stampin up card has its own folder and any snippets no matter how small go straight back in, so all the crumb cake snippets are with the full sheets of crumb cake, makes it much easier to keep them together but this is the only card I do this with.



Ingredients:
Image: House Mouse
Papers: "Heirloom" & "Christy" by Sassy-Designs Inc edges inked with Tumbled Glass distress ink
Cardstock: Teal(snippets folder) & "Crumb Cake" Stampin up

Sentiment: Elzybells

Challenges: Snippet Playground

Brilliant card Amanda - love the HM stamp (but of course) and those papers are gorgeous.

Of course I enlarged and just love the Elzybells sentiment - non binding agreement, very funny!

Have a super day, it's gonna be hot!

Hugs, Di xx

That stamp is such a fun one. Not seen it before. Must admit I tend to keep my odds of paper like that too, but my folders are getting mighty big and fat so need to have a rethink. Hugs Mrs A.

hee hee hee I absolutely love this sentiment - I read it aloud to my husband and he laughed, but with a rather worried look in his eye!

Gotta love those little House Meeces. Besides their cuteness, you did a great job with the coloring. Thanks for sharing the snippet idea of keeping snippets with the su paper folder. I'll have to try this one, as I just toss snippets into a folder that was meant as a monthly sorting thing. Your idea would work much better! TFS

Hee Hee! Love this card and the sentiment is great, especially speaking as a Litigation Legal Executive!!
As for your SU paper, I do the same with my MME paper and will no doubt do it with my SU cardstock when I actually cut more than one sheet. I am sooo tight with it! LOL!
