KW Color Inspriation #44 - A Chocolate Friendship

Good Morning Everyone,

I am so happy that to be able to do Kristina Werner's color challenge today! I haven't been able to play along in the last ones because of work.

I just absolutely LOVEd these colors that she picked for her inspiration and I totally LOVE the picture behind her inspiration (she took i from a children's store) - so sweet!

As soon as I saw that chocolate chip was on of the colors for this week, I had to make a card with chocolate! I used Lori Techler's awesome sketch for this week's sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Planet:

Card Details: Paper: Pink Cardstock from stash, DP from Easter Key Ingredients at Taylored Expressions.
Ink: Martha Brown
Stamps: Sweet N Sassy Stamps
Accessories: Marvy Heart punch, dimensionals, Ribbon from Taylored Expressions, Corner rounder, Prisma Color pencils.

I made this card for a special friend of mine who I totally adore but haven't seen in a long time. I saw her the other day and it felt so good to hang out and talk and laugh - so I made her a little card to tell her how much I adore her :) One of my most favorite memories of her and I were when we lived in Switzerland for a little bit - we completely were head and heels in love with their chocolate.... One of my favorite memories is her a dipping an orange chocolate slice (something like this picture) into a jar of Nutella!

How is your Saturday going? Any special plans? Unfortunately, all my plans involve me and the laundry machine and 4-5 loads of laundry - not a very fun way to spend Saturday - but I suppose an important one so that we can have clean clothes next week :) lol :) Our wee ones have a second round of the cough - ugh! CanNOT wait for spring - hope all of you are happy and healthy!!!

Don't forget to check out Taylor's Birthday party celebration this weekend - its all about celebration, party favors, prizes and of course cupcakes!

Thank you so much for visiting my little corner :)
Ciao for now!

Hey Sankari, I could have sworn that I commented this post but I was sort of stuffy headed when I "thought" I ommented so that may explain why there's no comment by me. LOL!!
