Make Your Own Holiday Blog Hop - 3/26-3/27 {CLOSED}

Welcome to my blog and to day one of Make Your Own Holiday Blog Hop.  If you happen to come across my blog and want to participate in the hop, please start on Karel's blog. If you arrived here from Kathryn's blog, you on track and almost done hopping! :)

I have to admit it was a challenge coming up with holiday for me.  Thanks Janice for helping with the holiday!  Here's my card:  Chocolate Bliss Day!


The chocolate chip paper is from Paper Pizzaz and cardstock by Coredinations. The colors are brown and caramel but my camera didn't capture it. :(
Both mats are SVG cuts created by Penny Duncan.  The chocolate heart shape lolly is from Jolee's.  I bought the natural twine at Big Lots for $2 for 350 feet, look in the hardware department.
Please don't forget to comment, as Karel is offering fabulous blog candy.
To win my blog candy, just leave a comment and I will announce the winner on Tuesday, March 29th.


Your next stop is:

The super creative Patti, from Short N' Scrappy

Kristin said...

I was wondering when someone was going to do a holiday associated with chocolate! Your card looks very yummy! Or "delicious" as two of my nieces would say. Everything is "delicious".

Hi, Yolie. Computer shut down yesterday. so this is day 1 and I'm playing catch up.

GabyCreates.com said...

You couldn't come up with a holiday! Hello!! Chocolate should have been an immediate choice if you would have asked me. Nice card Yolie!

Anniebee said...

Hi, Yolie! I'm with you on this idea of celebrating chocolate with its own holiday! I also agree with the commenter above who said that women need more than one of this holiday every year. I'd vote for once a week! LOL! Thanks for sharing and for offering a chance to win your cool blog candy.
