It's a Chocolate Blog Hop

Today's the last day of Feb and the last day of the Celebration, but I won't stop celebrating!! I'm in a blog hop today with the Scrapbook Place blog hoppers. The theme today is chocolate, so I whipped up this Kraftin' Kimmie sweetie and made this card for the hop.I have had so much fun this month, I would love the hear which card was everyone's favorite this month in the comment today. I have obviously started arranging items for mailing already, but I hope to start getting packages out starting tomorrow. I will be posting names everyday as the packages start mailing. Email me at if you see you name on the winners list and haven't given me your address, check Feb 15th and Feb 1st posting for the winner's lists. I have NOW listed ALL the winners for the contests UP TO TODAY....they are all on the Feb 15th posting!

All that is left is the grand prize winners, which will include winners of the Sweet pea stamps, stamp sets,....those will happen tomorrow morning as I want to give a chance for the overseas vistors to leave a comment on today's posting. I would say the current list has AT LEAST half a dozen goodies on that list that will be announced tomorrow morning!! They are all stamps, so leave your comment here. Check out the list on the 15th as new winners were added yesterday and if you see your name in red, email me!!

  2. Hi Holley. Another beautiful card, and YUMMY too. OOOO love that lace.
    That was very hard to pick just one card, But i really like your card from February 3rd. On this card you have everything i like. First of all i love fairies, and then your gorgeous Lace. Next what i like about this card is a Butterflies.
    OK, i pick one more card lol, it's a card with 3 Dragons You know why? It's all about colouring. You put so much work on coloring this image, and it's looks awesome, plus they are way too cute. My baby Girl said when she saw this card "Mommy are this Dragons playing Peak-a-Boo??" I think that was very cute.
    Thanks a lot Holley for fun games.

  9. A real chocolaty card. heart giving an impression of chocolate wrapped in a packet, lovely.

  10. Well you made this feb2012 one of my most enjoyable month. Everyday was most awaited day to see what Holly is going to post. 2010-2011 was a horrible year for us as we were apart n than I realized positive and negative energy and their effects through one of my neighbour. You have been another one who showed me this positivity through color and cards.

    Dear I will always be thankful to you, you are successful in creating some good effects on me.

    This whole feb I love many of ur cards and could devide them as giving positivity and loving one.

    The very first card was my favourite with those strawberry kisses images. To start a celebration it was awesome. spread your wings, penguine birthday, cupid,seed of happiness. The fairy image butterflies lace everything was elegant and could felt happy vibes. There are few cards on this blog where I literally felt positivity... Like Happy Birthday, bear hugs, penguine love, A Dream, with all my heart, untill we meet again, hope always.

    Keep continue and giving me chances to come to you.

    Hi Holley,
    Love your Sweet Dreams card. I wonder of the girl plans to eat all those cupcakes by herself, or if she'll just go to sleep and just dream about them. Very cute card.
