Buttons And Chocolate Buttons


It's a week for buttons.  House of Cards have a challenge to use buttons on CAS/classic/elegant cards,


And Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes With Buttons.


The new challenge at Simon Says Work It Wednesday is to create a card that makes you think of Spring


And the doors are still open at The Card Concept.  I think I'm Clean & Layered today.


I went to a ladies' event last night where there was a talk on chocolate.  With sample tasting.  Mmmmm.  This chocolatier makes unusual combinations.  Dark chocolate, lime and chilli.  Delicious, bought some.  Dark chocolate, lemongrass and Szechuan pepper.  Fabulous, bought some.  Milk chocolate, orange and jalfrezi.  Bought some, not tried it yet but he promised I'll like it or my money back :)

  11. How fun! Love this card. As much as I love chocolate, I'm not sure those added flavors would be to my liking.

  12. Divinely clean & layered today! I admire your 'challenge organizational skills'....how do you possibly keep them all straight?

    ADORE...no REALLY ADORE this card! The papers are amazing and so work so well with the buttons (especially the script)! This is one of those cards that I stared at forever, soaking up all the little details that blend together so well to create a perfectly balanced card!
