Chocolate-y goodness

Who doesn't love chocolate? Well, actually I have met a few crazies that don'  Just messin' , I won't judge you for being vanilla.... or will I? muahahahahahah

Okay I am in quite the goofy mood if you could not tell. Anyway, I was coloring up this little guy and had so much fun making his face all messy with chocolate. Coloring really is so relaxing, isn't it? They were really on to something with crayons and coloring books for kids. I used to lay on my belly on the floor and color for hours as a child. Although I sit at a desk and do it now.... I still love it just the same.

This little guy makes me smile. Well, I saw him as a boy... Hubby says it looks like a girl. I guess it can be what you want it to be, really.

I was so excited when I got done coloring him and went searching through my Stampin Up stamp stash ( wow that was a and saw a set with this sentiment! How perfect, eh? I love when the stars seem to align just right when you are I also got to use a paper pad that I received quite a while back as a gift. I am a very cautious paper mixer... but I am trying to step out of my comfort zone more and more, and just throw caution to the wind. This was a step out for me but still a little cautious since it came from the same paper I will get there one steps.

I also love to do the out of bounds type effect with the die cuts. It is just so cool looking to me.

So tell me....what is one thing ( craft wise) that you are a little cautious with. Or is outside your comfort zone?

Peace, Love, and Chocolate smiles!

  1. I love this! I am going to go and get this image. Your hubs is right.....could be girl or boy! So glad to hear from you and hope you are well. Great blog!


  2. Love love love how you've put chocolate all of the face...looks so real. The color palette you've chosen is perfect and your coloring is spot on.


  3. Tracy, the image is darling wonderfully colored! Absolutely love the smudges of chocolate on his face (yes, I guess the child could be a boy or a girl)! Love your design! (Everything I do is a bit outside my comfort zone--but I do it anyway!) And I think you're right--we are still kids at heart--just like when we were coloring with crayons! (But Copics are so much more fun!)
    And thank you for your sweet comments on my blog! :^)

  4. This is so cute. I think it could easily be a boy or girl. I sit and color all the time. My stuff is set up so that when I have to ride with my sweet hubby, I can grab it to go too. You did an awesome job.

  5. Hi sweetie this is absolutely gorgeous, big hugs love Pops x x x

  6. Too cute!! As always your coloring is amazing! Your choice of papers is perfection and I love your mis-matched dies. That little chocolate mess of a child sitting on that string is adorable!

  7. This is gorgeous! I love how he/she(!) is sitting on the twine; I like to use the "off the edge" technique too, I think it makes the image look less sort of "photographed" and more "sculptured" some how :-) Love your paper choices too, you brave paper mixer you, lol. Donna xx


I got inky this Easter weekend and created this card. I bought this stamp awhile back from Walmart online of all places. I knew I loved the ...
