STAMP SOMETHING - CHOCOLATE SOMETHINGS

Whoohoo!!! Here is it, Friday again - where are the days going, this week FLEW by!!!! Today's Stamp Something challenge is sponsored by my fellow DT member Lisa who is fabulously talented and challenged us to make something to do with chocolate!! I decided to make my husband's Valentine's gift - a box filled with all his favorite chocolates. I used the A2 box template from SCS which was perfect for this little project!! I used my hearts wheel on the lid, then stamped it all over with Versmark, and added some Iridescent Ice - add some heat, and voila! Instant bling!!! I also used my Eyelet Border punch on the sides of the lid and held the lid together with some brads since the sticky tape does not do too well with the embossed cardstock. Here is a photo of the inside of the box - I am not done filling it as there are a couple more things I want to add such as his favorite truffles, but I did want to at least show you what it looked like....YUM! What a fun challenge - I hope you go over to the Stamp Something site and check out what the other DT gals did, they made some seriously yummy things!! And, I know we would all love to see your take on this challenge so if you play along, make sure to link your project to the post so we can check it out! Not only that, you don't want to miss out on the awesome candy up for grabs *wink* Here is the recipe - I am off to hang out with Tony, stamp some (whoohoo!) and maybe even do some shopping - aaaahhhh, what a life, lol!! Have a fabulous weekend all, and thanks so much for stopping by! You definitely want to stop by tomorrow - I just noticed my counter went over 70,000 hits - YIPPEE!!! That means Blog Candy for YOU!!!! See ya tomorrow!
