Fancy Pants Believe

I thought it would be fun to share some fun facts about chocolate with you for this Chocolate Sunday. I can tell you I will eating a ton of chocolate in the near future, with having the EX stay with us and all, I will use to calm and soothe me......LMBO!! do I really need an excuse.....**wink**

Fun Chocolate Facts

On the fourth visit of Christopher Columbus to the Americas, he came across cocoa beans, which he presented to the Spanish court. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, however, dismissed chocolate as a bizarre tribal concoction. Boy, did they miss the boat!

“Giri Choco” is a japanese custom which means “duty chocolate.” It calls for employees to give chocolates to their managers as a token of loyalty.

A recent study indicates when men crave food, they tend to crave fat and salt. When women crave food, they tend to desire chocolate.

The botanical name of the chocolate plant is Theobramba cacao, which means “Food of the Gods.”

Chocolate was considered an aphrodisiac by the Aztec Indians, and as such, was forbidden to women. Today, some postulate that chocolate triggers a brain chemical that produces the same reaction brought on by a passionate love affair. Perhaps that is why, when a love affair turns sour, many a spurned lover goes on a chocolate binge.

Todays featured stamper for the featured stamper was Stamps4funinCA, here is the link to the challenge FS17: And She'll have FUN, FUN, FUN...., and here is the card I decided to case Fancypants Birthday.

I can hardly believe my eyes! I made a similar card (colours and stamp sets) to this the other day and have yet to post it. I must be on the same wave length as you. That being said, I think yours is way more delicious than mine *smile* Thanks for sharing this GORGEOUS card.
