Favorite Stamp of the Month: You Had Me At Chocolate!

Hi! and welcome to My Creative Time's Favorite Stamp of the Month Thursday!  For this month will we be featuring "You Had Me At Chocolate!"  If any of you "My Creative Time" friends own this stamp set, feel free to link up a project of your choice using "You Had Me At Chocolate"! You have 2 weeks to do this. If you don't own it, you can purchase it here at a special "discounted" price!

For my project today I used my Cameo for the first time!!  It was my Christmas present from my Hubby! :)  While it was time consuming to make it wasn't all that difficult.  The software seems pretty easy to navigate around in.  My biggest challenge was loading the mat correctly!!  I always have a problem with that when using my Gypsy too! :)

Anyway......I made a swing card using a cute file I found in the Silhouette store.  I thought it went perfect with the sentiment :) 

I stamped the sentiment onto My Creative Time's Stitched Heart die from the 100% Sweetness set.  I absolutely LOVE how so many of the MCT stamps and dies can be mixed and matched with each  other.  I think Emma really puts a lot of thought into her designs to help us get the most out of them! :) 

Thanks for stopping by!


PS  Mama always said "life is like a box of chocolates!"  ;)
