Chocolate to the Rescue

Hi Dreamers,
Chocolate lovers: attention, please.  Chocolate can do it all.  Well, not really but check out the funny sentiments from Stampsmith --Say It Like It Is Full Sheet---that I used on the two cards for today's post.  All stamps are from The Stampsmith.  The first card uses the single stamp---Maxine.  The Photo images are stamped on Glossy CS with black dye ink.

I wanted to go with a retro fifties kind of look and found some  DP from Cosmo Cricket that seemed retro-y to me.  

I added some ribbon from May Arts and a few pearls.

Card number two used an image from the Those Were The Days Full Sheet.  I used the same papers and ribbon. 

Too funny!! 

A Few Challenges for my Chocolate Lovers cards:
365 Cards: day 187 Smart---my sentiments are kind of SMART-alecky.
The Poodles Parlour: here come the girls
Simon Says Stamp: put a stamp on it
Sentimental Sundays: humor me
One stop Craft: no floral embellishments

Hope you are having a great day!!  Love ya.
