A quick make at Chocolate Baroque

Hello Lovelies! How are you today? I hope you are well and happy! I am good and so are my little munchkins - its the last day of their holibobs today so we need to make the most of it - we may go to preston to try a trampolining place - but I'm not certain yet - it may be that we go north instead to Kendal and check out the bike route that I have to do on Sunday!!! Or maybe we will manage both!

Today over at chocolatebaroque there is a post showing cards that take 15 mins or less to create - I have one over there and I would like to share it with you here.


I used two stamps from chocolate baroque 

I stamped the image and coloured it with distress pens then cut it out and mounted it on some green card. Next I used a musical note embossing folder and embossed a card then used squeezed lemonade distress ink to colourise the card.


I stamped and added a border to the sentiment - then assembled the pieces - this card took less than 15 mins to make - chocolate baroque stamps very often speak for themselves!

Big hugs

  2. You coloured so beautifully the flowers, Rachel! And again I return to your triathlon! When I ran half-marathons I carried in my pocket chewable magnesium tablets with glucose - they were refreshing, I didn't get cramp and the glucose gave me energy :-) But use just the glucose not the fructose! All right, no more advice :-) Take care! I will think of you! Hugs!
