Kiss Me!! Kiss Me!! Be Mine!!

I can't think of one person in my family that this card wouldn't be great for....they all love chocolate. The cute piggy stamp is called Sow Soo-eet Piggy and it is from High Hopes......The chocolate and heart are also from High Hopes Stamps. Be sure also to check out the HOTP....Hot off the Press stamps....there are many Wonderful New stamps just put up on the High Hopes site lately!!

My daughter Trina has also made a Gorgeous card with this stamp........so be sure to check it out here - Trina's Timeless Treasures. Trina and I are planning on challenging each other sometimes to use the same stamps to make cards. It's going to be fun!! She's really been putting the cards out lately so I am going to have to hustle to keep up.

Here is the recipe for the card;

Stamps: High Hopes, TAC, SU Sweet Talk Paper: whisper white, chocolate chip, michaels, basic grey blush Ink: versafine black, chocolate chip, close to cocoa, garden green, bashful blue Accessories: ribbon, lace, cord, acrylic paint, glitter, stickles, stitching Techniques: prismacolor pencils and h20's

I am also working on new look for my blog ..as you probably have noticed...lol....just tired of the old look.

News!!

Just before I go I have an update about my brother Dana. He has been receiving experimental free treatments ....and at the moment is doing fairly well. His last re-evaluation (end of Dec) has shown that some of the cancer nodules have shrunk....and that is very good news!!...He will be continuing treatment. He Thanks you all so much for the cards...he loves them all and has felt a great deal of support from them. What a Terrific bunch of people in the Blogging World!!

Thanks for looking and have a Great Day!!!

I love this card Ila and you did a fantastic job with the details! I recently made a purchase at High Hopes and I did consider this stamp but declined because coloring the chocolate is difficult for me. After viewing your card, I might reconsider and order this stamp.
I am so relieved to hear that your brother is recovering...God is good and your family is in my prayers!

Hi Ila, I'm glad to hear that your brother is showing signs of improvement. I hope the best for him.

I love your piggy card! It's really cute. I think it's sweet that you and your daughter challenge one another. I would love if my daughter could stamp with me but right now at her age, she is just not interested. She thinks stamping is an "older" person's hobby. Ummm, okay! LOL

Again, your card is a work of art!
