Some Thoughts on Chocolate
I get such a chuckle out of this cute sentiment in My Favorite Things' new Flopsey Chocolate Bunny set. It won't make sense until you see the inside ...
Can you relate?? ....
I used this week's MFT sketch for my layout, which you can find HERE, along with the weekly My Favorite Challenge. (Remember, there's a $5 MFT gift certificate prize for the winners of each challenge each week.) Coloring is with Copic markers. The paper I used for the background and to piece Flopsey's recliner is from MFT's Summer Paper Pack. For the border stitching on the background panel, I hand-stitched using some May Arts burlap string. I'm liking the look of the heavier string (as opposed to my usual thread). The sentiment comes as one stamp, by the way. I inked it in portions and added the ellipses so I could break it into two parts.
Thanks for visiting!
