I'm a Chocoholic


I guess you can tell what I have been thinking about today! Chocolate. (Insert Happy Sigh here).

There is nothing quite like chocolate (another sigh). I have not had much chocolate lately-and seeing these stamps reminded me of that. I think I need some, don't you? LOLI have been an extra extra good girl-doing really good on my HEALTHY diet. I think I have eaten so much Broccoli and other veggies that I have them growing out my ears! A girl needs chocolate once in a while! Rules are meant to be broken, right? LOL



I made this first by slapping some Gesso all over this tag, applying some text, and some Distress Inks. It was not quite as vibrant in color as I would like, so I drug out my Caran D'ache crayons (love love love) and scribbled them on and rubbed them with my fingers to get the look I wanted. I did the same for the background on the "Chocolholic" image and I adhered that to grunge paper and inked around the edges.

Stamps are from I Brake For Stamps:


Chocolate Set (Embossing Arts line)

Swirls (Stampinback)

Well I don't think you can eat brocolli and veges for breakfast, but you can eat chocolate :) ....in a croisant for example ( I have no willpower), but I love you tag!

LOVE these colours, Kristy. Hope you got a bit of chocolate. Did you know that a SMALL amount of very dark chocolate is actually healthy? I'm not a chocaholic but I do like the odd taste now and then and find that consoling, lol. Glad you're feeling better. x Cath
