Chocolate and challenges

Hello there... How are you all? 
We have beautiful sunshine but it is very cold ... It would be lovely in Wales today seeing all that beautiful countryside glowing in the colours of Autumn ... But I am content to craft and watch the squirrels dashing along the garden ... digging and burying their store of nuts ... Yep, going to have some wonderful oak trees and beech trees growing if I don't watch out ...
I have a project for 2 challenges to share ... 
First up .. The Shabby Tea Room has an inspiration picture for this weeks challenge ... "Chocolate Covered Autumn" either go with the theme or the colours ... look at the delicious picture ...



Well, I just had to go with the Chocolate! who doesn't love chocolate? 
And secondly Pixie Dust Paperie are having their first ever challenge! "Scrap - Lift" all the DT work is so beautiful, but in the end I knew I had to go with Kirsty's boxed notes .... So without further ado ... here's my project ...


A boxed set of notes cards .... all with a chocolate theme ... all of  the images are from a collage bought at Etsy ...


My box has an acetate front so you can see the cards through ... handmade and printed on my computer


Looks like white chocolate and dark chocolate (yum)
The cards in more detail ...


This gorgeous chocolate brown ribbon is from the Pixie Dust Paperie and so is the prima flower below




So why don't you hop on over to these two challenge sites ... I had fun doing this today ... and I never ate one piece of chocolate ...(yet!) ... 

Till soon ... take care
Ros
