Then it was over to my inlaws for a few days and now home again. Home sweet home, but lots of chores waiting and a never ending list of things to do.
Because there were some items on the to do list that HAD to be accomplished I'm behind on my mojo but managed to finally get it done. Here is this week's sketch:
And here's my take on it:
supplies: I'm not sure of the company names for the chipboard figurines, nor the flowers nor the cardstock but I can tell you the "baby girl" stamp and the pin stamp on the ribbon (I copied that idea from my neice Samantha) are both from the Fiskars "Sweet Pea" stamp set. I embossed the "baby girl" stamp using some Liquid Glass embossing powder I bought at Stampers when I visited my Sister.
I was SO happy that a friend had a baby recently and so I was able to finally make a pretty baby card, something I've been dying to do for a while.
Now I know there are some other very busy "Mojo-ers" out there including Nina, Judy, Samantha and in particular Valinda who has been going CRAZY making paper flowers ever since I showed her how to find tutorials on making them. She has surpassed me by far and has made a real garden of them.
On another note, I was in Penticton on Monday with my Mr. and we stopped at our favorite sweet tooth stop in the world... Accent Chocolates. We've tasted a lot of chocolate and while some places come close in the "looking good" category, nothing compares to the taste of AC's chocolate.
Our favorite bon-bons
Honest to goodness these are the most amazing tasting truffles - they taste like a silky warm creamsicle.
I had taken a photo of the monster huge chocolate bunny (5 lb and $250) but confess I deleted it off the camera by accident. But this giant egg comes close, in weight, not sure of price:
And these are a couple of their other smaller, hollow eggs:
Are'nt they just beautiful - chocolate art!
