Chocolate Makes My Mouth Happy

 This awesome sentiment by TLC says it all! I have used it before and it rocks! Anyone that knows me knows I have a thing for chocolate. It may possibly, sort of, maybe, kind of come up in conversation every now and then! Soooo I have recently received gifts that included Godiva , Ghiradelli & Lindt Chocolate. Could it get any better than that?!!! So this is one of my Thank You cards. 
 This is another time when I used a 4x6 paper pack and pieced the paper together with stitching so you never know. I really love doing that! 
If I was more confident in my coloring I would have had chocolate all over her face and hands. It would be more accurate of how I look when I eat chocolate! LOL! I was afraid of messing it up so you get the cleaned up version! The chocolate is on pop dots to make it... well, pop! It is the most important feature!

 Inside- Top
Inside- Bottom
Another excellent Sentiment from TLC!

Top Tip Tuesday: Stitching TIP- When paper piecing if a piece does not blend right and sticks up, you can just take the piece of the image that is lower cut another piece out and pop dot it so it now is 3D. It will blend and make your image pop!

Love this card Stacey. The papers are gorgeous. That sentiment has my name all over it! I must admit, *my name is Babs and I'm a chocoholic* lol Unfortunately it makes me swell up all over, so have been only eating it once in a while now. Have a great day!

Yum! This card looks delicious! I have eaten too much chocolate + other things this winter and have gone up 2 dress sizes! Hence nothing fits me and I am feeling a bit depressed about it now. But when I feel depressed I usually want to eat chocolate! So there is no winning!
