a card & a confession

Yes, I have a confession. It has to do with the picture below and self control. The problem is that I don't have any when these candy coated chocolates are within reach, or across the house in the kitchen in the cabinet!:) I did show some restraint only buying these 2 tiny bags last night at the store! Compared to my last shopping experience which included peachy rings, gummy bears, cadbury eggs, mini eggs, marshmallows, and blow pops:)

Onto other news...here is a cute card I made with a cool embossing and paint technique. First you clear emboss an image (I used my crowns stamp) then paint over it with acrylic paint. Then using a clean sponge lightly wipe off the image and access paint. Try it sometime!

Happy Wednesday!

Cadbury eggs are my favorite. I'm not really supposed to eat them right now because I've had blood sugar issues with this pregnancy... but I do carry one in my purse for the occasional day when I'm feeling naughty!

Sonja said...

OMG Cadbury Mini Eggs, I love them. I am on a diet and if I loose 3 more kilo's before easter a bag of eggs is my reward!!!!!!!

Ann said...

Yummy...I have no restraint in buying candy. My dentist is terribly angry with me. *smile* Cute card!

mommamin said...

i have evidence on my blog from after my last shopping excursion... cadbury topped the list. i don't know what i spent more on, candy, clothes, or scrap stuff...

littlegreen said...

love those eggs too. I always forget about embossing techniques when I scrap... I guess because the heat tool and powders are out of site in my little corner I just don't think to use them, I should pull them out tonight.

Bekah said...

I have never seen those mini eggs. I'm sure they are tasty. The card is beautiful. :]

Love the card...it is adorable. :) And seriously...how much candy would retailers sell at Easter time if we only bought it for the children. :)

AngMomof3 said...

Those are my fave easter candy too... yummy!

You'll never guess when I found these first out on shelves for this 2008 easter season... I got some that had just been put on sale at my local ShopKo store on CHRISTMAS EVE!!! I bought some for stocking stuffers. We got to enjoy mini eggs on Christmas! Crazy.
