Be My Freaky Valentine!

Can it possibly be coming up on Valentine's Day already??? Where DOES the time go???? ANY excuse I can use to give/receive chocolate is ALWAYS good, so I am TOTALLY ready for it!! You should have found your way here from the FABOO blog of my fellow-Freaky-Friend, Gretchen Barron. She ALWAYS blows my socks off!!

First up ... this is a card I have been thinking about for some time. I love funky folds and cards that "do" stuff ... and by first appearance, this one doesn't appear to "do" anything ....

But pull up on the little ribbon tab at the top and VOILA!! A fun slider card with Valentine wishes inside!!! (Couldn't fit any chocolate between the layers of this one ... sorry!) Which leads me into one that DOES involve chocolate!!

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso

I am a Dove Chocolate Freak (as well as being a Control Freak). I figured this would be a fun way to give some chocolates to someone you love ... in a full-on bouquet. Almost too pretty to eat (but NOT quite ... I'm ALWAYS gonna eat chocolate if given the chance!!

I loveD Dove chocloates. I wish they had a white chocolate with raspberry sugar free (for diabetics) Dove. Or just a dark chocolate SF one!

Wow,I miss chocolate a lot! I love your bouquet of chocolates. They are beautiful all together!

Way to go, GF!
