A Sweet Treat Challenge

Hello, welcome, and happy Friday!  I have a card to share with you today made with one of my favorite characters!  Yes, it's Cocoa!  I LOVE this little guy, and I can hardly wait from one release time to another to see what Korin is going to have him up to.  Yesterday, this little fella was released on the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps website, so be sure to get on over there and snap him up for last minute Valentine cards.  Yesterday was also SNSS Challenge Day on SNR Card Universe.  There's still time for you to play along with the Sweet Treat Challenge.  Create your sweet card or project, and upload to the thread in the SNSS group to play along.  Every Thursday, Sweet -n Sassy Stamps will bring you a new challenge there, with the 1st Thursday of the month being Prize Thursday, where you can win prizes for playing along.

This is Chocolate Cocoa.   What more could a girl ask for this Valentine's Day than three delictable chocolate truffles with one cute gray mouse in the middle!!  LOL!!  As long as it's on a card, I think most ladies will be perfectly happy with that.  The real thing... Probably not so much!!  :-)

I colored Cocoa with my Copic markers, and cut him out with my circle Nesties, adding a scalloped circle behind the image.  I frosted the flowers on the truffles with some Dazzling Diamonds, added a crocheted flower (that I actually made), and finished everything off with these pretty irridescent rhinestones.  Easy peasy, and fun, fun, fun, fun, fun! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I wish for you a blessed weekend full of sweet and special things that make you happy!!!  Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Stamping!!

Love ya,

Lorie, he's adorable. Great job on the coloring, and those truffles look sooo yummy. I love the paper too (I have such a hard time choosing papers). Thanks for your kind comment on the SNS Digi blog... I may not make it around to comment every day, but do keep up and always appreciate the comments (they cheer me up). Thank you!
