Simple Chocolate Bliss

It's scorchio again today and my back garden has turned yellow with all the fallen leaves everywhere, and no sooner do you sweep them up, more replace them. Needless to say, I gave up and sat down to catch up on some crafting.

Over at the Clean and Simple Challenge they had this sketch, and also at the Stampin Royalty challenge#91 they are asking for K.I.S.S ( Keep It Simple Sweetie )

So, here is the simple card I'll be entering into both challenges

I started with a cream card and layered it with some brown card. I then added a strip of paler brown card across the top, and with the same card cut it with a decorative punch. I then stamped the filigree image onto some cream card in dark brown ink, and added  the punched card to the bottom and stuck it in the center, To finish it the sentiment was stamped on cream card mounted onto brown card and stuck down on 3D pads for some dimension.

Recipe : Card = So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, pale brown and cream card stock from my stash
Stamps = Bliss and Verve
Ink = Chocolate Chip
Tools = Martha Stewart Border Punch and 3D pads

I'm not looking forward to tomorrow as I have a nurse coming to show me how to inject my new medication. I have a phobia about needles, and although I have blood taken regularly and have IV hospital treatments, someone else is in control and I don't have to look!!! I keep telling myself that it'll be OK, but I'm still dreading it. I'll let you know if I manage to do it?!

Well that's all folks!, and I hope to have time to craft some more.

Thanks for dropping by today, and I hope you can return soon.
