That's A Lot!!!

Hello friends. This is a special card for my hubby.  This sentiment says it all. lol   This is the More Than Chocolate set from Deedee's Digis.  It's another one of Deedee's terrific $1.00 sets.  I adore these little sets.  You can afford to buy a new set for any and every occasion or just because.  I apologize for my poor pictures.  I had to take them very early in the morning before the sun was bright enough to give me the best natural light.   It made the white areas have weird shadows.  I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder on the lower portion of my card.  I tied a bit of hemp through my button to add a slightly masculine touch.  My hubby will be okay with all of the pink on the card, because it's from me and he knows how much I love pink.
This close up view of the chocolate shows the bit of shine on it to make it look more like the real thing.  Are you craving chocolate yet? lol  I colored the image with Prismacolor markers, Prismacolors pencils, gel pens and glaze pens.
Here's the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card.  Isn't it a perfect sentiment for a chocolate lover to give to someone they love?
I'm so sorry I haven't been getting around to visit and comment on blogs.  I'm battling several physical problems above and beyond my normal ones and to be honest I've been feeling awful.  I'm undergoing tests.  My afternoon out with hubby on the weekend was absolutely awesome, but a bit too much for my strength right now.  It was so worth it though. :)

  •  A very uplifting testimony from a young woman who has been through severe physical battles.
  • Hubby found some good, used books for me.  I love to read.
  • Unexpected phone visits with several family members.
  • Safety driving to the Dr. in a bad storm yesterday while I was feeling terrible.
I believe my pretty little bird I spotted the other day was an Orchard Oriole.  They only pass through this area during migration.  They like sweet foods and we have humming bird nectar out.  It has been disappearing at an extremely fast rate, so we suspect the Orchard Oriole has been enjoying it. :)

Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!

Shelly, your card for your hubby would be "gobbled up" if my hubby got it, lol! Just delightful....and that sentiment is the icing on the cake...heehee :D.
But, L'il Sis, I'm worried 'boutcha...are you not taking proper care of yourself?
We sometimes get too wrapped up in taking care of everybody else, don't we?.......but YOU are in need, too....our family is having a special fast this week, and you and your needs will be included.
Get more rest, girlie....or ya might find me on the doorstep, lol!
