The Chocolate Oracle (i've pinched this of Emma's blog)

What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You

You are unique, creative, and fascinating.

You don't do what's expected of you.

You go for what's unknown and uncharted.

You are confident and strong.

You know what you want, and you're willing to wait for it.

While you do eventually get what you want, people consider you materialistic.

You love to be in love. You crave romance, whether you're single or not.

You feel lost when you don't feel passion... you need someone to adore.

My time to craft challenge "buttons and buckles"

This card was really fun to make. I was lucky that i found a paper that matched the ribbon buckle exactly. I didn't have any nice buttons so i added a rub on flowers to plain white one's which worked well. This is my newest magnolia stamp I'm definitely addicted to them.
