LOTV Chocolate Box

                                                       Hello everybody,
         I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend & did not eat too many Choccy Eggs.

I would like to send Get Well Wishes to my follower & friend Debra & hope you will be back to crafting soon.

     Sorry I have not been around for comments or posting, I just don't know where this last couple of weeks have gone. My children went back to school on Tuesday, so I made two cards in between catching up on house work & various other things but have missed out on entering into a couple of challenges as family life just gets in the way sometimes.

Any how with thoughts of all the lovely Choccies in mind I have made this card for the Live & Love Chocolate Challenge.


 I have hand stamped & coloured this image with Copics & finished with Shabby Rose Fran-tage.

I have used a mix of papers to finish up some scraps. 

                                                         I have made this card using,
                                           8 x 8 Craft UK limited Scalloped card The Range,

                                                           Tim Holtz Butterflies,
                                                                    Papers used are
                                    Brown spot background is Papermania Regency  Paper Pad,
                                   Beige top layer is LOTV  & Nitwits Country Lady Paper Pad,
                                 Purple centre layer is Wild Rose Studio Vintage Rose Paper Pad,
                                                                    Flowers are
                                                 Large Purple Flowers are from The Range,
                                                  Beige Roses are from The Hobby House,

                                      Pretty Resin Butterflies have been kindly made by my Mum,
                                                                (I have added Fran-tage).

I am entering into these challenges...
