Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate

Mmmn, I love DARK chocolate. My favorite treat! In fact, I just finished munching on a dark chocolate candy bar my husband bought me. I was dipping it in a peanut butter jar as I blog hopped. I'm suppose to be on a diet in a quest to lost 20 lbs before my daughter's wedding. But, with my love of food, I doubt that will happen. But hey, I just had a my annual physical on Tuesday, and my doctor told me I was in PERFECT health, and my cholesterol levels were amazing! So There!

Anyway, I forgot to show you these little chocolate treat packages I made. I actually received the envelopes from my EX-Stampin Up! demo. I no longer am a demonstrator, nor do I buy their products since their decision not to allow demos to post pics and links to other paper crafting companies. My ex-demo sent me these envelopes, but they were a bit too plain for me, so I dressed them up a bit. They are just the cutest envelopes that a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square fits perfectly inside of. This one I made using a dollar stamp from JoAnn's, a Cuttlebug Die, and a fabric flower and ribbon. The little heart on the sentiment is a red adhesive gel sticker.

This sentiment is from the retired SU! set 'Like it a Latte'.

Here is what the back of the envelope looks like. Isn't it cute? Such a cute gift to hand a co-worker or friend for no special reason other than to brighten their day.

Well I finally got around to visiting all your blogs since today was my day off. I've only been on the Internet for about 4 hours now. Sheesh! That's what happens though when you have dial up and about 87 emails to respond too! LOL! Have a great day! Amy
