With love and a little bit of chocolate!

Hello!  I have a no occasion card to share with you today!  This is a card that you could add to a gift or send just because! :) These are always fun to make and are great to tuck away for that rainy day when you need a little something, but are short on time!

I am sure you noticed, but this card is round! LOL  I don't make a lot of these, but should more often because I like the way they look!  They are easy peasy too!  I used the circle Big Shot die and placed the fold down over the circle before I cut. That way it comes out folded with a top piece and a bottom piece still connected. 

I used the splash-y smudge-y stamp from the French Foliage stamp set to absorb some of the white space in the background, but am thinking if I made another that I would leave that off.  I embossed the bottom half of the circle with the Square Lattice EF and stamped the leaves with the Field Flowers stamp set.

I used Mixed Bunch to stamp the flower and it's coordinating punch to cut it out.  The center is punched from the 3/4" Circle punch and also run through the Square Lattice EF.  Paper and ink colors are More Mustard, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Confetti.  Quick, easy, fun no occasion card! 

I also wanted to share a truly amazing (well in my opinion anyhow!) thing with you!  If you visit me here fairly often you may know I am a girl that likes her chocolate....weeeeeeeeeeell, lookie what I found!!!!!  OMGoodness!!!!   It is a GIANT Whitman's sampler!!  It is full, full, full of chocolate!!!  Personally, I think everyone needs one of these for Christmas!  What do you think?! :)

I hope that you are enjoying your Saturday!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
