I Like You More Than Chocolate!

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  I Still Have A Lot To Learn :)

When I was in my teens and twenties I thought life was pretty rough.  I kept thinking that when I got "older" - whatever "older" meant to me then - that somehow I would have all the answers.  I figured by the time you were "old" that you wouldn't worry anymore about silly things and that you would spend your time thinking very deep and meaningful thoughts.  Well, I don't know about you, but now that I'm "older" I still have a lot to learn!  I don't have all the answers...at all!  I also worry about silly things and I keep wondering if there is ever an age, or a time, when those silly things will stop bothering me.  If you happen to know the answer to that question, please let me know :)  I hope I continue to learn many lessons on this journey called life! :)

Today's card was made for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  The inspiration was a yummy looking piece of chocolate on a red background :)  I used the chocolate stamp and the word "chocolate" from the Things I Love stamp set.  I stamped the chocolate in a few different browns and then covered them with Crystal Effects to make them look yummy enough to eat!  The greeting (other than the word "chocolate") came from the Love Bandits stamp set (such a CUTE set!).  Don't you just love our new epoxy brads!  So adorable!!!!  The real red card stock layer was run through our new polka dot embossing folder.  Hope you like it...and hope you like me more than chocolate...but if you don't, believe me, I understand :)
