Lovin' The Chocolate

This is my card for the HM & Friends Challenge #103 - No Cookin' Recipe Card.  I had a lot of fun with this one and knew exactly which stamp set and recipe I was going to use when I read the challenge on the blog.  I have never made a pocket card before so I found the single pocket card directions in the SCS Resources. 

The HM stamps I used are Chocolate Delight, Jumpin' For Joy & I Love Chocolate.  They were all colored with copic markers.  I used spellbinders dies to cut out the main images and the bg ovals as well.  I sponged SU creamy caramel around the mice, pixie pink around the sentiment with regal rose on the fancy oval behind it & close to cocoa around the recipe.  The dp is from SU along with chocolate chip & pixie pink cs.  The ribbon came from Michaels, I think, and the brown brad is from Bo Bunny.  The recipe I'm sharing is one that I usually make when I'm doing my Xmas baking. 

I've been on vacation for 2 weeks now and have thoroughly enjoyed them.  We have had really nasty weather for the most part over June, July & August and now that Sept. has arrived we are having some really hot and beautiful days.  Maybe this is our summer now?  Anyway, I will enjoy whatever we get even if it is from looking out the office window.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my blog.
