CHOCOLATE ANYONE?

Hah!! I bet that got your attention - LOL! Sorry for my lack of posting yesterday, I got caught up in reorganizing my craft room and it took waaaaay longer than I thought it would although it sure looks a lot better!!! I did have a little time to stamp late last night so I thought I would share one project I was able to finish for my Open House on Friday. This cute little Ghiradelli box was featured on SCS last week for their weekly inkling and I just love it!!! Beate always does such a great job on her tutorials! This little box and 3x3 card is made using the Sale-A-Bration Stamp sets Yummy and Polka Dot Punches as well as the yummy dp Delicate Dots that is featured. I know the colors are a little non-traditional but I really do like the softness and think this would be great for the man in your life. I took some different pics of the box to try and give you an idea of what at looks like from different angles although they aren't the best pics....they will at least give you an idea though. Here is the shot from the top - notice the flap tucks into the sentiment to keep the box closed? Love this! And, around the flap, I just added a little bit of ribbon to add some color. This next picture is a little hard to see because of the glare off the wrappers but you can see how the little chocolate squares fit neatly inside! Yummy, huh?! This was a fun and easy little project that I will demo on Friday night!! I am very excited about seeing all the ladies from all my different stamping groups - it is sure to be a really fun night!! Now, I am off to catch up on my blurfing and stamp some more of my class samples - Friday will be here before I know it!!! Thanks for stopping by today!
