Enjoy Yor Day!

Sorry there is no Chocolate Sunday this week we just got home from family camp and I didn't have any time to make something before we left on Friday! Family camp was a blast! Family camp is when our church family gets together and stays at a bible camp, every family has their own room or cabin, the food is catered by the camp staff, and we have a speaker come, but most of the time is spent fellow shipping. It was so funny the had a 50's drive in movie last night and everybody made a 50's cardboard car to watch the movie in, wow there were some pretty great cars! They also had a ladies spa treatment so nice, paraffin wax, massage, pedicure, manicure and chocolate fountain mmmm....!

I just made this card for today's featured stamper's challenge the feature stamper is Cindy Haffner she has a great gallery! I chose to do her Pink Bugs card. I am going to try to get another one done today. If you would like to try this challange you can do so here FS12: By POPULAR demand!!!!

I also wanted to leave you with the chocolate rant once again as sometimes I think it needs repeating.... LOL!

Chocolate: Luscious, Lumpy. Load of Love......

…And oh how we all love it . Someone (a friends husband) recently said to me that they didn’t understand why “Us Women” love chocolate so much , and that comment really upset me, it should be obvious why we love it so much , but for “Those People” (men) whom don’t get it , here goes…lol.
It only makes sense to start off with a great quote from a great character , Forrest gump immortalized by Tom Hanks "Life is like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're going to get." everyone knows everything Tom Hanks says is right , we love Tom. Life without chocolate is like a beach without water. Chocolate is nature’s way of making up for Mondays. They say man cannot live on chocolate alone; but woman sure can. There are four basic food groups-milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles. Chocolate in the morning is what makes moms get through their day! If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated. Chocolate builds character , strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands-and then eat just one of the pieces. The chocoholics 12-step program: NEVER BE MORE THAN 12 STEPS AWAY FROM CHOCOLATE .I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter. Chocolate is cheaper than therapy and you don’t need an appointment. I know all I really need is love, and I have that, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt. I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance? Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally, so scientifically chocolate makes you younger. Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world's perfect food. Nothing brings people together more than chocolate, there's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE, giving chocolate to others is an intimate form of communication, a sharing of deep, dark secrets. And remember : Betty Crocker said “And Above All…Think Chocolate!” would she lie…didn’t think so. I find myself saying “Put the chocolate in the bag and nobody gets hurt.” and all the cashiers in my town know not to mess with me! Because Chocolate: Here today...Gone today! Chocolate wasn’t even meant to last , have you ever seen a chocolate bar with an expiration date! Nine out of ten people like chocolate…yeah right… the tenth person always lies. Any SANE person loves chocolate. Simply put... everyone has a price, mine is chocolate!
