I've been away from stamping for 8-9 months. One of my sisters loves M&M's (she would live on them, if she could). I made one of the M&M characters out of paper punches (CASEd) and want to make a card with it, but my brain just won't come up with any M&M or chocolate humor (you know, like "save the Earth--it's the only planet with chocolate").
Can anyone help? I can print the saying out on my computer, so I don't need to worry about finding rubber stamps for it. PLEASE post some of your favorite, cute M&M or chocolate sayings.
Thanks--and the sooner the better. My creative stamping mojo may disappear again!
Thanks so much, cookiestamper! I get the feeling you might be a fellow chocaholic. I'm sure one of these will work. If anyone would like to post others, please do. I figure chocolate sayings are probably like chocolate: you can never have too much. And since my sister is in the early stages of dementia, I'm trying to send cards to keep her spirits up. It will be nice to have other sayings I can use in other cards.
I'm not sure if you're making a birthday or Christmas card, but here is anM&M quote for Christmas cards that someone shared here before:
As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them,
You will see the M becomes a W, an E, and then a 3.
They tell the Christmas story, it's one I'm sure you know.
It took place in a stable a long, long, time ago.
The E is for the East, where the star shone so bright.
The M is for the manger where Baby Jesus slept that night.
The 3 is for the wise men, bearing gifts, they say they came.
W is for Worship, Hallelujah, Praise His Name.
So as you eat these candies or share them with a friend.
Remember the meaning of Christmas,
It's a love story that never ends.
The following can be used on treat bags or the new SU! see-through cup cards using red M&Ms, red hots, etc.
Rudolph has a job to do every Christmas Eve, it's true.
His nose will always light the way for Santa and his tiny sleigh,
But if his nose should ever go out don't cry or whine or yell or pout.
Take out this bag and use a bit from Rudolph's Red Nose repair kit.
#2 (spare reindeer Noses)
Rudolph's nose is very bright. He helps guide Santa's sleigh
Without it in the dark night sky they might not find their way.
So just in case dear Rudy's nose is kaput and goes on the blink
We have these spare "red nose seeds" to repair him in a wink!

Thanks for the additional suggestions, everyone. The Rudolph ones will be cute for xmas. Actually, I am looking for M&M or chocolate sayings that I can use for any occassion. "Just because" cards are what I am planning on. Of course I will send her other themes, but she'll get a kick out of several chocolate-themed ones making fun of her "addicition", spaced out over several weeks.
I changed the Teacher's M&M poem to fit for my coworkers.
