Oh how SWEET it is! That is what I'll be saying if I win the Gina K's Jan Release Challenge #3! I LOVE Gina K's new releases and my friend, Melanie, has a new release (stamp set) this month called "The Best Things In Life". This set has so many words and phrases that you can use to describe the best things in life. This set is not only great for card making but is especially useful for scrapbooking. This is the set I will choose if I win any of Gina K's challenges this coming week.

Here is what is posted as the challenge by Theresa: "My challenge is to make Something Sweet! Make a card, scrapbook page or other stamping item using the theme "Sweet." It can be something with the word "sweet", some kind of edible "sweet", something for a "sweetheart" or something that makes you say, "ahhh, that is so sweet."

Hopefully my card will not only make you drool for the "sweet" chocolate it holds but that you will also oooooh and awwww and say, "Oh how sweet!".

I used a template that I found on Ellen Hutson's "The Classroom". I printed it up, cut it out, traced it onto doublesided designer print cardstock, scored the two places the template said to score and embellished. What a fun project! I have to thank Ellen for the template and the inspiration she provided.

Thanks for stopping by! I have more cards to show you so please come back. :-)

Oh WOW, that is so lovely. You've cut the heart out perfectly and I really like the way you've made the pocket. The choice of papers are perfect and the embellishment is fabulous. You've really excelled on this challenge, and I'll keep my fingers and toeses crossed that you win :)
Take care & keep smiling
