Grab Some Chocolate and Hop Around The Block!

MFT-Life-is-Sweet-wm

Happy MFT release day everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Hop Around the Block".

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

My projects today use two of the new stamps sets which are available to purchase at MFT Stamps NOW! These sets are “Who’s that Chocoholic” WTG Mini and “Clearly Sent about Chocolate” which is a fun sentiment set all related to chocolate

For my card I decided to create an Easel card as I love how these look. The designer paper is also from MFT Stamps and is the My Favorite Paper Pack - Chocolate Kiss Range.

For my second project for today, as the stamps were chocolate related I wanted to create something that would hold chocolate so I decided to create a candy wrapper box.
