Chocolate Friday!!

What an awesome theme Judy thought of today for the Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC195)!!....make a project with some sort of chocolate theme....chocolate colored ink or paper, a chocolate-related stamp, etc. Thanks Judy! Loved this...and I love that book too!

My tag was inspired by one that I saw on the Stampin' Up Home Page. A tag was made with two mittens dangling around the horizontal strip. Well, I used these cute little cups from There She Goes instead of mittens.

What's all chocolate on my project??...LOTS!!...

- TSG Mugs and Steam are stamped in the background
- Memento Cocoa ink
- Chocolate Chip CS
- PTI's Chocolate Remix DP
- Chocolate/Vanilla Ribbon from Taylored Expressions
- The inside is filled with two packets of hot cocoa...french vanilla and mocha flavors
- AND....I also drank a cup of hot chocolate while making this project...hehe...okay, that doesn't count for the challenge but I thought I'd mention it

The Vanilla tag is 2.5" x 3.5", matted against a piece of Chocolate Chip CS that's 1/8" larger all around. I stamped four teacups in Memento Cocoa (two of the right-facing cups and two of the left-facing cups) onto the Chocolate Remix DP, cut them out, and glued two together back-to-back...that way if they flip when dangling, it still shows a finished side. I strung them on hemp twine and looped the twine around that horizontal strip. The horizontal piece of Chocolate Chip and Dark Chocolate DP is up on dimensionals.

RECIPE ~
Stamps: There She Goes Tea for Two
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, SU Very Vanilla, PTI Dark Chocolate Remix DP
Ink: Memento Cocoa
Accessories: Taylored Expressions Polka Dot Ribbon, Hemp Twine, Brown Brads, Dimensionals, Tag Corner Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, Two Hot Cocoa Packets, Marshmallows, Clear Bag

...now go have some hot chocolate. It's snowing here in PA today so it's just the perfect day for it too!!

Later all!
