Challenge #177 - Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate

Welcome to the Chocolate Challenge this week...who doesn't like chocolate?  And after Valentine's day hopefully all have had their fill....let's see what delicious creations you can come up with this week.

Deena here:
I bought this s'more set for no other reason than I like to eat them....never really had an intention of using it, but they just reminded me of movie intermission concession stand cartoon guys and I thought they were cute....

.....mmm....Chat Noir here, just licking the chocolate off my fingers..... here are the ATCs I made this week.....

 ......using up an empty chocolate wrapper for one, and recreating a box of chocolates for the other.  Excuse me while I go and find a REAL chocolate or two....all of a sudden I feel a little hungry....

Electra here.
Chocolat.  The name of a great movie.  Chocolate en francais, which makes it sound even gooier and yummier.  Doncha just love it?

Deets are on my blog

Challenge #176 - Let Me Call You Sweetheart - Red, Pink and White

Let me call you Sweetheart in shades of

(had to use a little creative license for white, you understand)

Valentine's day, hearts and flowers and lovely chocolates.  Mmmm......that works for us.  It also happens to be a fun time for crafters to make beautiful tokens of love and affection for their  Valentine sweeties.  So, if you stitch, quilt, stamp, cut paper, etc.  what have you been making for this holiday?  Let's see what you can do with using red, pink and white for inspiration.

Here's what the Opus Gluei Poobahs have been doing:

I made Valentines.  Lots of Valentines.  Not that I have lots of lovers, it was just fun.

There are probably more at my blog.  Come visit if you like!

Chat Noir here....and I made a collection of ATCs, because they're my very favourite thing.  I was going to try and use the three colours all at once, but I'm more a monochromatic kind of girl, so this is what happened instead!

Rosemary here and I decided to make a Valentine's card, I'm thinking this is for my sister who (like me) loves girly things and sparkle.  So I punched and embossed, added pearls, a button, rhinestones,  ribbon, and had a great ol' time!  Lots of RED, WHITE, and PINK!  I'll be sharing lots of Valentine cards at my blog this week...

Deena here:
I went for a little more of a traditional Valentine card, using up some of my card kit papers..the pile is slowly diminishing...
