Yesterday the Teapotters made cards for Rita who is Carol's (Gingerbeary8) Mother. Rita has recently been in and out of the hospital several times and is experiencing some serious health issues. She loves chocolate so I chose to make her a chocolate-themed card. I hope it brings her a smile and lessens her burden, if only for a moment. She is in my thoughts and prayers, as well as Carol, who is in distance, separated from her Mother at this time.
You can't see it in the picture (drats) but I used SU crystal effects on all of the letters, chocolate splats, the bow and the inside of Button Bear's ears. I haven't mastered controlling the flow as yet so it's certainly not perfect but it does add some dimension, gloss and shine, which I think looks kind of neat.
Thank you for looking! :)

Oh my goodness Gabby-you are sending her a bear!!!! I love it. Chocolate Crafts and Bears for me-you are too much....simply darling. How sweet this card is-just like you. We appreciate the prayers so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking of my Mom. It is just a thrill for me to have the teaparty in my Mom's honor. I appreciate it so very much.

What a sweet bear. He looks as if he's been having fun in the kitchen cooking up a tasty treat for Rita. There's definitely a learning curve with Glossy Accents, I remember the first time I ever tried them out. It didn't help that I hadn't realised you're not meant to shake the bottle because of air-bubbles.
