Chocolate Mint!

I must confess that I am quite partial to a chocolate mint, although I am on a Slimming World regime at the moment... so any choccies have to be Synned! 
I do feel better for having lost a few pounds however, so I don't want to undo any good work!

Here are my cards for the Chocolate Mint challenge at Less is More this week!
The green from the watercolour maker I used for this Impression Obsession stamp changed colour somewhat after adding Glossy Accents... it started off the same colour as the ribbon, but turned slightly more yellow... which is a little odd!
Anyway, the sentiment is from Memory Box, the die from Avery Elle and the Embossing folder from Sizzix.

This is a simple card using a die and stamp combo from Poppy Stamps. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

This is the card I put on the Less is More blog, you can see details there, but I love these trees from Impression Obsession.
This little card features a couple of  flower dies from Simon Says Stamp, sequins from a Dienamics die and a sentiment from Paper Smooches. As the flower dies leave the flower attached to the card stock, I added a sheet of mint card behind the card front, to show through beneath the petals.

My grandchildren have been delivered back to their mummy,,, and returning via the shoe shop for new shoes for school and pre-school respectively went back to the new term with enthusiasm.
It was lovely having them and my heart melted when my little three year old said when he realised that I was returning to my home without them, that he would miss me! Bless!


  1. All fabulous cards Chrissie with lots of glitz and glam extras although it does get me panicking a bit when I see all these glorious Christmas ones popping up! Must get organised myself!!!! Have a fun week. Sarah x

  2. Super Christmascards! So many ways and things you can do with "chocolate and mint"! The flowers on the last one are stunning! Enjoy the weekend, Gerrina

  3. What a lovely selection of cards. Really like the sympathy card, I always find it difficult to come up with suitable ideas for this sort of card, but yours works so well. Karen x

  4. I like your flower-card, nice looking when second color shows from below.

  5. How lovely that you had your grandchildren stay over. And isn't it amazing that children can say such lovely things and not realize how much they have touched your heart. So innocent and open in their love.

  6. Love all of your cards! The last one is my fave. Hope I can get a card done for LIM this week.
