Inventory Challenge #14



Good morning everyone and a very happy Friday! It is time for another Inventory Challenge. Today Danielle and I invite you to our 14th challenge and the theme today is based on the song "Happy Days are Here Again......"!
What comes to mind....my mind, that is.....???? CHOCOLATE!!!!!
OK, OK, I know I may have a warped mind, but keep in mind also that chocolate is known to induce the feeling of well-being and elation. Oh, I can give you an easy explanation for my psychotic state of mind. My hubby was recently diagnosed with borderline diabetes and now all sweets are off the menu. Sob.......!!!!! Obviously, this state of affairs explains why I wake up with chocolate on my mind!
Boy, do I feel good when I can indulge in some luscious chocolate...yummy!!!!!
I know that Tilda and Edwin dancing would have been the "perfect" choice, but I decided to go with my first instinct.
This cute Tilda is new and I don't know her name yet! She is sitting on a box of chocolates by Alota. By the way, that box of chocolates is now available in a mini size for the new mini Maggies! The paper was purchased many years ago and is from Imaginisce. I used a MS border heart punch and Nesties,as well as a Cuttlebug heart embossing folder.
I would like to invite you to visit Danielle and view her magnificent work of art, as well as our other teammates, Charlene and Rene. I'm sure they will have something wonderful to show you!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I am so appreciative!!

  23. Well, of course chocolate makes us happy - and it looks as if Tilda has already been "sampling", as she looks positively ecstatic - LOL. Very cute card, Christina, and I'm in agreement with you on chocolate -- you've gotta sneak some in yourself without hubby knowing . . .

  30. You know what Tilda is saying.... Ohhhh, come on Christina, just one little piece...lololol.

    What a sweet card, a hint of Valentines Day. Mr. C can have a piece or half of a Schillerlocken as long as he cuts out the sugar he can live without and you know there is so much in the food we eat every day.

    Hope you are having a great day... does Distress Ink mean anything??? Hahaha

  35. Hi Christina!! Ohhhh this is absolutely STUNNING and DELIGHTFUL! I love the beautiful colors and Tilda looks like she's saying, "Give me MORE chocolate!" hehe! Yes, I am like you .. a choco lover as well! :)

    I'm so sorry to hear that your hubby has "borderline diabetes"! I know how hard it is to be more cautious about diet .. it kinda sucks .. but it will be worth it. :)

    Love and Big Hugs,
    Elise
