Are you ready for another Sweet -n Sassy challenge? Well, Saturday has arrived, and with that comes another challenge from the Sweet Stop. This is the sketch for Saturday, June 13th, and what a sketch it is! Oh did I ever have fun with this one!! Be sure to check out all the samples from the SNSS DT, because it looks like they enjoyed this one too!

I knew I had put back some of the Stampin' Up! Au Chocolate paper, which retired quite some time ago, and when I saw this Chocoholic stamp set from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps, I knew exactly where my paper stash was going. I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this stamp set!! It has some of the most wonderful sentiments, as well as a variety of chocolate goodies to color. What a delicious treat this would be for anyone's collection, but it's a MUST HAVE for the chocoholic!!

I put my neglected nesties to good use on this card, and since I used scallops to frame the image, I wanted to follow through with more around the sentiment and below the designer paper. The polka dots around the image and on the brad were added by me with a white gel pen.

This special award was shared with me by a very sweet and special lady who has shared some of the most gorgeous creations I've ever seen with us through her beautiful blog. She has been supportive, encouraging, and always faithful in leaving uplifting comments to not only my blog, but so many others. There are many people out there in cyber stampin' land that proudly and lovingly call her friend, and I'm very happy to be one of them. Thank you sweet Carolyn for this special award! It is now my turn to pass it on, so I would like to share it with a few of my faithful and supportive friends. I'm choosing to share this with:

There are so many more that I could share this with, but I'm going to save some of those friends for the other sisters to pass along to. Please know that I look forward to all of your comments, and am touched and humbled by your kind words and support. Our cirle of friendships keeps growing, and has become such a blessing in my life! You are all beautiful people. Isn't it amazing that I know that even when we've never met personally, and in some cases I've never seen a picture. I know it because of your beautiful, kind and generous souls! Love and hugs to you all, along with my sincere gratitude for all your support and encouragement!

Have a blessed day full of Happy Stampin'!!
