Eat Chocolate & A Funny Story

My projects today use the Eat Chocolate stamp set. What a fun set! All four of these images speak my language!

The card is supposed to be a candy bar. Use your imagination. I used the emboss resist technique on the inside piece.
  • The image is embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder on Glossy White card stock.
  • The piece is then sponged with Early Espresso Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber and buffed off with a paper towel.
The tag was also created using the emboss resist technique. I sponge the tag with all 5 In Colors, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, and Concord Crush and then buffed the tag with a paper towel.

I have to share what happened this Monday night after I completed my Pals Blog Hop projects. Of course I had procrastinated and was up late. I finally finished around midnight and plodded off to get ready for bed. Now, Monday morning I had gone to exercise at 5:30am and had done a ton of sit ups. For some reason my tail bone was sore and I had used this zinc ointment called Balmex on it. (My apologies if this is TMI) It's really for diaper rash but works great on sit-up owies. So, Monday night I'm getting ready to brush my teeth and am not paying much attention to what I'm doing. You can imagine my surprise when I ended up with a mouth full of Balmex instead of tooth paste! Oh my gosh that zinc stuff tastes horrible! I don't know if I've learned to not procrastinate and get to bed early but, I will check the tooth paste tube each and every night! Well, enough of my sharing!

Have a great day.
God Bless,
