January mid-month at We Love Chocolate Baroque

 Good Morning, it is time for our mid-month reminder over at 'We love Chocolate Baroque'.


Once again I have used the Chocolate Baroque stamp - Wish Flower, have I told you how much I love this stamp and it does remind me a tad,  of the old Penny Black stamp Awaken.
The papers are pretty old Stamping Up.

Coloured with Pro-Markers and I have used the same green pen that I have used on the image to make the backing card for the image and the papers.

I do that a lot, if I haven't got the exact colour card, I use the colour of the pen I have used on the image,
I only do the edges of the white card though, and not the full backing sheet.

Thank you so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts Challenge week 607 - Something New

 Time for another challenge at Allsorts.

Helene is in charge this week and she would like to see...

Something New.


Well the papers are very old LOTV, and I bought the set for the computer many years ago, and I don't think that they have dated one little bit.
My something new is this lovely stamp, above, from Chocolate Baroque - Canary Bird Rose.
Apart from the above stamp I didn't get anything at all crafting wise, for Christmas, how sad, must rectify that next year.

This lovely stamp set is the prize on offer for one lucky winner this week.

Once upon a time I used to wear high heeled shoes, but not quite as high as those of the image. We used to call them 'stilts'.

Thank you so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave. Please take extra care at this time when and if you have to go out and about.

Allsorts challenge 605 - Anything Goes

 Happy New Year to you all.

Welcome to the first challenge for 2021 over at Allsorts.

Ellie is our host for this week and she has chosen the theme of....

Anything Goes

Our lovely sponsor for this weeks challenge is.....

Chocolate Baroque.

Our sponsor Chocolate Baroque will be on Hochanda TV with a One Day Special at 6pm Monday 4th January.

Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley Wharton. 
We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley.  The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!

The prize this week is this Chocolate Baroque limited edition Fragrant Honeysuckle stamp.

Here is my card.
I have used Chocolate Baroque - Wish Flower (I love this image)
I made the chalk background and then stamped the image on the background and then paper pieced it with some Crafty Individuals papers which I heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer - Persian Sea.
I placed the paper pieced images onto the card with sticky pads.
I then did the same with the butterflies from the Chocolate Baroque 'Breath of Spring' collection.

We had a lovely Christmas Day at our youngest Daughters with our two super Grandsons (their Dad was in  the Caribbean with owner and guests on board one being Lionel Richie but Dad did get to FaceTime them).

On Boxing Day evening my eldest Daughter ran a quiz from Australia using something which I can't remember what it was called, but we could see all of us which included nieces and nephews and their family too. It was great fun.

Hope you all have had a lovely Christmas and New Year, best wishes for 2021
