Good Friends Are Like CHOCOLATE!!

Today my post comes to you in thoughts of friends! :)  Without good friends, life can become pretty lonely!  I feel that I've found such a wonderful group of friends through stamping!!  So why not make a special card to show the meaning behind them!?
I sometimes get in a "hurry" when I create a card, but I found that when I purposely try to follow a sketch without trying to hurry through just putting together I card, I tend to do a "better job" with my creation.  So I keep a book FULL of sketch ideas for many different ideas when I really need to put something together quickly...and so my chocolate savored card was born! :)
I used this fun Cocoa Cup image (H223)..doesn't it look like they're having so much fun basking around in that chocolate?!! :)   The heart shaped circle behind the image is the Giga Heart Shaped Circle (L273) that I colored the hearts in with a white gel pen.   I also used the fun Chocolate Chip background image (H361) and stamped it with white ink on my mint colored panel.  I also stamped it again with cocoa colored ink on white card stock, punched out a couple of "chips" and used it as an embellishment on the top right side of card.  And of course the Good Friends Like Chocolate sentiment (F715) just make the whole card come together.

And just so that you can see all the fun shimmer on those sticky fun marshmallows, I've tilted the card to take a close-up picture of the marshmallow friends!! :)  I just my glitter pen to color them in.
So don't forget to tell your friends how important they are!!  DRS Designs has MANY wonderful sentiments and images that can help find just the right idea you're looking for!! :)

Great job Vicki! This is adorable! I love how you added the 2 chocolate chips at the top-never thought to use a stamp like that to create my own embellishments-I would have just placed brads there. Thanks for opening my eyes LOL!

I love this card! OMG, I love nearly all things shiny. This card is just so warm and inviting! AWESOME... I love all the details!

I also have trouble with the hurrying! There seem to be so many THINGS stealing time that cards seem to fall in at the end of the line sometimes :(
