Hi my name is Stacey and I AM a chocaholic!!
"They tried to make me go to rehab and I said  NO NO NO!!!"

 Have I  mentioned I sort of kind of maybe like chocolate?!
Well this is for my friend Jessica who knows my fondness
for chocolate. She not only brought me chocolate, but Godiva and
Lindt Truffles! They were quite yummy!! Were as
in past tense completely gone and now attaching to my thighs!
Chocolate cures all things... for a minute anyway till you
have the next piece! I could go on and on, so I'll stop...
for now. Jessica also took me out to lunch and shopping
so I wanted to give her a big thank you! I do
have great friends!

The sentiment says it all!
 Liquid pearls on the chocolates to make them pop a bit!

 Two layers of ribbon One slightly bigger than the other.
The orange has gold sparkles in it.


 As I mentioned on my two previous posts: My friends find little
things that remind them of me. It is very sweet and most of
the time flattering.  This is what Jessica saw when she 
thought of me!!! I think it is because my craft room is
purple and this matches perfectly! That's my story
and I'm sticking to it!! LOL

Stacey! Your card has been running around in my head, and oh dear, how you have made one funny and fabulous card! You just can't help it, this brings smile on your face and when looking all the details you have made and put, wow.

That two ribbon thing is (imo) very effective and really nice.

So sorry I have to disagree things about chocolate. I find it horribly too sweet, sticky, makes your throat to close down...

Ulina /Apricot Bubbles said...

LOVE that stuff, too :-)
