This is another card for the weekly TeaPot Tuesday challenge at SplitCoastStampers. Of those who are not familiar with this event: each week, some one is selected as the recipient of our RAK cards - we have a theme, and try to send cheer or special congratulations. This week the recipient is the 81 year old mother of one of our group - she has had many health issues and several hospitalizations, so is in need of cheer. She is fond of chocolate. Can you believe that in my collection of 42,000 stamps, digis, and RAK images - chocolate is not to be found! So I printed a freebie - located thanks to Google. Rita will get a whole box of chocolates - and these are definitely no calorie LOL! This sketch was a particularly challenging one - I probably did not do a good job of pairing image and layout, but I tried - it is flipped. from the original. The bg layer is embossed with words from the You (Cuttlebug) embossing folder - I just embossed words along the edge of the cs, choosing words that I wanted to use, as some did not seem suitable for the occasion. That technique worked better than I epected.

Oh my goodness, my mouth is watering! But I ate a whole box of chocolate last night, so I don't need any more. Mind you, there were only 4 chocolates in the box. I didn't have a chocolate stamp either, but I never thought about getting a picture on-line! What a yummy card!

That is so sweet to put my Mom's name on this card. She is going to love it-and look at that image. My mouth is drooling. Some yummy chocolates in that image for sure. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sending this to my Mom. I am just thrilled and can't thank you all enough. It means the world to me.
