"Sweets, candies and treats"....

...is the challenge over at Sarah Kay this week. Here is some words to work off of: "It could be chocolate so you could make a chocolate coloured card, a treat bag filled with chocolate, a wallet with chocolate bars inside or something else! Of course you don't need to choose chocolate as your theme, you could be inspired by cakes, cookies, candies or some sugary themed patterned paper." Now I hope that makes it a little clearer.Now this couldn't have been a better topic for this week!! Here in the U.S we have a holiday on the 3rd Sat. of October and it is called "Sweetest Day". (My husband says it is just a Hallmark holiday). So you can see why this was perfect!!
I made this mini pizza box and filled it with Hershey Kisses. So to make the card coordinate with the box I wrote I kiss the ground that you walk on!! (I know my husband will get a big laugh out of that!!) LOL.

Now I had to make it pretty enough for the both of us because he NEVER gets me anything on this day!! He doesn't have a romantic bone in his body! However, when I returned home from bowling with my older 2 he was sitting in front of a fire with Rachel eating the chocolate kisses!!!! I was jealous!! He has never done that with me!!! (To be fair he just fixed the fireplace ~ but still.....)

Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Walmart, mini pearls ~ K & Co. (SNSS)
, chipboard heart & button ~ basic grey, glitter ~ Martha Stewart


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is staying warm, it is getting chilly around here!!
