Chocolate and Friendship Card

Chocolate and Friendship Card
I just found out today The Stampsmith has a challenge going on. Since I have been a long time "drooler"...I mean fan of their stamps, I wanted to play along. Their current challenge is "Friends and Friendship" and you have to use at least one Stampsmith stamp. This card also fits three other current challenges:
Charisma Cardz (White plus one other color...I chose black as my other color.)
Cute Card Thursday (Theirs is a sketch I used it to get my mojo going.)
Paper Play (Stars and Stripes....used striped paper and star eyelets)
I stamped the Stampsmith image with black ink on glossy white cardstock. The embossing folder is by Sizzix and I used glossy white cardstock for this also. The striped paper is by 7 Gypsies (Paddington collection). Some white star eyelets and striped ribbon finish it off. Do you ever use eyelets anymore? I have a huge box of them in all different colors and shapes. After using these white star eyelets, I promised myself I would start using them more. :) Hope your Thursday has been a good one. My husband took me out to lunch to a Mexican resturant so I didn't have to fix lunch. Now if I could figure how to get out of cooking dinner. Wink! :) I don't want to be in the kitchen in the summer (or spring, fall and winter either for that matter)....but alas my family likes to eat and even demand "hot" home cooked meals. Imagine! :)

What a wonderful take on the challenge theme set. When I hosted this challenge I wanted all aspects of friendship and use of The Stampsmith stamps.
Thanks for joining us at TSC. Hope to see you again soon (next challenge 1st of the month)
Good Luck with the Prize Draw.

I laughed out loud when I read this sentiment as I just returned from a road trip with a couple of friends and we argued over whether we liked each other or chocolate better!!! ROFL!! Your card is priceless! I'm so glad you've joined us for the Stampsmith Challenge! Best of luck in the draw!
