So Sweet

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely Easter. Not too much chocolate I hope LOL!

It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Jennifer's turn to choose the theme and she chose "So sweet" - So use something on your creation thats sweet. eg: chocolate, sweets, candy etc". As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I had to use. HMTR1015 - Chocolate truffles, it's a joy to colour and a totally scrummy stamp too. The recipe for my card and any thing I used is at the bottom of my post.
