Chocolate - Yummy.

The title of the post is maybe not entirely accurate because as usual I've been trying to combine challenges lol! I wanted to do the Passion for Promarkers challenge which provided this great sketch with a theme of love. I thought the Creative Inspirations Wednesday challenge blog with it's anniversary theme would also fit this card. But for some reason instead of making something obvious like pink, red, silver or gold I decided to use brown and cream. This fits the theme of Hot Chocolate which fits two challenges :- Quixotic and Simon Says Stamp.

I'm afraid I have no idea where the DP is from as I have had it for a long time but I know it is all the same brand! I embossed a piece of cream card in the Cuttlebug with the Heart Blocks folder. Unfortunately you can hardly see the pattern as only the corners stick out under the paper above. The lovely Forever Friends image is coloured with Promarkers and I used gold stickles for the champagne popping out of the bottle.

After I finished the card I thought yuk. When I came back to it with a cup of coffee it seemed a bit better but I still think I've probably made a wrong choice of colours. Too late now, it's done!!
Here I am late at night as usual so I am just going to post this, enter the challenges and go to bed. Hopefully I can catch up with you tomorrow. It has been a bit of a short evening. I phoned my DH to check if I would get up the hill now that there is a bit of a thaw. He said it was fine, he had got up the hill but the road was now very uneven so you were all over the place. Before I got out of work he phoned back to say that his van had got stuck in the (short) track out to our house and would have to dig the van out. So I got back and left my car at my neighbour's house. Because the snow is thawing you just sink into it and there is still quite a lot of it. Think it may take a while to get black roads where we are. So by the time tea was made and eaten it was well after 7pm. Never mind at least the journey was a bit less horrendous than it has been.
See you tomorrow, take care and keep safe and warm.
