A Chocolate Affair Blog Hop

Hello friends!  It’s time to do a blog hop!    Welcome, if you’ve just come from Lucy Kelleher’s blog.
We’ve all been looking forward to August!  It’s a new Idea Book.  A new Cricut Cartridge called Artbooking and this fabulous Stamp of the Month called A Chocolate Affair.  It’s usually $5 with a $50 purchase.  This month it’s FREE and it’s CHOCOLATE!  Free Chocolate, can life get better than that? 
Here’s my creation.  It features a bit of yellow from the new Babycakes paper pack and a calendar page cut from Artbooking.  The red heart is cut freehand from our new RED shimmer trim.  Whoo hoo!  I love that stuff.  The days of the week are actually part of the Artbooking cut and are attached to the overlay that has the slots for each day of the week.  I used my Smoothie marker to make them a bit more defined since they’re so small.  I added the Oh Happy Day from the Artiste bundle because it works beautifully and rhymes.  Oh happy day, everyday is a Sundae. 
Here’s the whole luscious stamp set.  It has 8 images with separate sentiment stamps so you can mix & match easily!  I’ll be posting more artwork throughout the month of August with this stamp set.  I have so many ideas and so little time.  And not nearly enough real chocolate. 
Hope you’ll come back soon and take a look at the rest of my blog with recent Artbooking posts and specials. 
Now on to Krista Ritskes’ blog.  Have a great day!
