Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge #6


Have you been to the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge Blog yet?  It's hard to believe that we've already made it to the 6th challenge!  Goodness, time REALLY does fly when you're having fun, and it sure is fun making cards with Cocoa!  
For my card today, I took the challenge this week, which is to share a new year's resolution.  I looked through my stamps, and of course I was thinking "healthy", because that's one on everyone's list, right?  Well, I found this cute digi stamp and added the sentiment (omitting the "You") from the So Sweet Cocoa stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I think that's a couple of pretty good resolutions or goals for the new year.  Trying to be healthier and making every day sweeter.  Ahhhh...  The best of intentions!  I did something unheard of for me, and that's using NO embellishments!  OMG!!!  Is this really happening? I thought this beautiful paper that I got from my local scrapbook store (Bo Bunny, I think) was so pretty, I couldn't bear to cover it up, so all I did for a little extra umphf was to add the scrollwork hand stitching with some red and white twine.  Sweet, simple, and really pretty easy peasy!!   

If you're a Cocoa fan, and you'd like to play along with the challenges this month, we'd love to see your work.  Just upload your creation using the link provided, and you could be entered for a chance to win your choice of three Cocoa digis from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a blessed day, and happy stamping!

I love Cocoa! Gotta get in on those challenges! Your stitched scroll is very nicely done. I thought it was some type of wire. Awesome coloring too!
