Chocolate helps with the back pain....LOL!!

Sorry I didn't make it back onto here last night. After I'd been to the baby shower and then gone to pick Sam up from my mum and dad's - cos he wanted to go round there rather than coming with me - it was 11pm and we watched a bit of telly while he had his supper and after I put him to bed, I came down and started having a bit of a mooch around blog land and I fell asleep!!
Anyway, here's the card that I made for my friend that I wanted to share with you:
I've used a Bugaboo image and sentiment coloured with promarkers. The papers are from Dovecraft and the lilac card is Bazzill Basics and I've added some Craftwork Cards card candy. Now the chocolate bars - aren't they fun!! I can't take credit for the idea, I saw them on a card made by Clare Curd in the Docrafts magazine but I made them by colouring 4 square gems for each choccy bar using a dark brown promarker, I then stuck them to a small rectangular piece of card and then covered each piece first with some foil and then with some DP. So - what do you think??
I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Right, I think that's about it!! Here's another few cards that I made while I had my Elzybell's stamps out, man do I miss this store!!!!!!!

They should come in handy cos I always need men's cards too!! I think that's just about enough from me - hope you're still with me and that you'll be kind enough to leave me a comment. I'm off to do some watercolouring with DI's. Have a fabby weekend (what's left of it anyway!) xx
