Well I am really frustrated. Not sure if this post will wrk ok as i can't sm to add photo's and am having to work with html which i am totaly hopeless with. I have not bee able to post all week as blogger is playing up. I am seriously thinking of looking at somewhere else to blog.

This weeks challenge at Stamptcular Sunday Challenge (sorry can't add the link either as blogger won't let me) is'oh for the love of chocolate'
For this challenge the only rules are that you MUST use some sort of stamping somewhere on your project and it MUST include some form of CHOCOLATE somewhere! You're free to create anything your heart, or tummy, desires as long as you follow those simple instructions!

I will have to add my pics at a later date when blogger is playing fair

Fially been able to post the pics of my project so here it is:

Passing the time

Last evening I was at my daughters pimary school for an evening event to help raise funds for the PTFA. I had a table there to sell my cards (not a great success raly as only just made able money). But while i was there i got out my bit of crafting stuff that i had taken with me and made a card. I thought it would be nice for potential customers to see how i made a card.
Here is the result of my evenings work (oh and a few orders for personal cards that i recieved while i was makin it)
