Chocolate & Stamping....Yum

I love to make cards and the more unique the better. I also love Hershey kisses but especially Mom loves them. She's 91 and weighs about that so she can eat all the Kisses she wants and doesn't gain a pound, by the way she found her teeth yesterday! (See my last post.) Anyway I was looking at this bag and just hit on how cute those kisses would look on a card so I took the empty bag roughly cut the images out glued them on some cardstock then stuck a real Hershey Kiss ribbon on the top and what a darling little card.

My card is SU White card stock with scrap paper a couple MS punch butterflies and what a cute card. You don't have to have stamps to always make your cards. Check out the next one............. These next two cards are made with a media flyer I received in the mail from Copenhaven. I don't chew and nobody here does but somehow I got this flyer and I loved the beautiful shining pictures. The light bulb went off and I thought of how hard it is to make masculine cards so I got my Marvy 2 1/2 inch circle and punched away. I actually got 7 circles out of the flyer so I could make 7 cards for my 'Operation Write Home' project. I used SU Chocolate chip for my base then I added Karen Foster Travel DSP added some twine rope and I had some really cute cards.
All I'm saying is you don't have to use stamps for every card look around and see what you can find. Most people say isn't it an expensive hobby, and I usually say "It can be but not always". My next one was super easy and it helps out one of my favorite charity.
This card I used an envelope that I received from the Humane Society. I grabbed my 1'' square punch and punched out some cute little faces. Then I took a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch size card pulled out my Scor-Pal and scored some lines on the front of my card. Then I layered the kitty faces on some scrap paper mounted them on the cardstock added a salutation and I was done with some quick, unique, darling cards that are one of a kind literally.
Have a great day and a super week.
God Bless,

oh definitely love those cards... the 2nd one almost looks like leather. Awesome and I love how you added texture by embossing the lines (I keep forgetting to do that, lo). Awesome cards Granny!

Happy Birthday :-)
