Have a Choccie-tastic Easter

 Evening all.

Well I've had the first of my Covid vaccinations so fingers crossed that I don't get any side effects. It was incredibly well organised, no waiting even though  I was a tad early. The only hold up was a bleeding needle site which took awhile to stop but all OK after that, even the sun was shining and the snowdrops on the verge were in bloom. We're both back sometime in May, all being well.

Anyway, over at Less is More it's their 10th birthday with Chocolate as their colour theme and as I haven't joined in for ages, I thought I would. Less is More was one of the sites that proved to me that I didn't need to slather the layers and embellishments on my cards to make a striking design, can't believe its been going 10 years, thanks for all the inspiration.

 I couldn't immediately think of what to do but after a root through the stash I came across a set of stamps I bought from a bargain bin in The Range ages ago, with cute Forever Friends bears and Easter Eggs. Well I didn't go with the egg part but the sentiment was perfect, so I teamed it with a homemade chocolate bar instead. Here it is -

The dark chocolate bar was made with some scraps of brown card die cut with a couple of small square dies and then edged with Hickory Smoke DI,  layered up on pads and glued to a panel of matching card. The finished 'bar' was wrapped in foil and the outer sleeve made by making a thin box from some pretty Spring like DP and stamping the sentiment on it with Memento Ground Espresso ink. I tore away most of the box and ripped the foil before peeling it back. The 'opened' bar was then stuck katy cornered on an off white base card. Hope there's enough chocolate on show!

Whether we see anyone at Easter this year is in the lap of Boris but perhaps it might find its way by post if not. I did find the chocolate bunnies and small eggs from last year at the back of the larder cupboard this aft, they may find their way into my tum, well I wouldn't want to give old chocolate to the kiddies, now would I.
