World Chocolate Day - July 7, 2011

Today is World Chocolate Day!  Yeah!  However,  I must say that I don't need a special day to honor and enjoy chocolate.  For me, every single day is Chocolate Day - love, love, love Chocolate!

Chocolate comes in many forms and flavors.  Here are a few that I enjoy....

-Hershey's Chocolate Bars - plain and almond
-Hershey's Chocolate Kisses
-Ghirardelli Chocolate
-German Chocolate Cake with coconut frosting - my mom's homemade version was the best
-Hot Chocolate
-Dove Chocolate Bars
-Almond Fudge Ice Cream
-Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream with Warm Chocolate Syrup - oh so very yummy, a fond memory of my aunt Leona in the winter time
-Chocolate and Peanut Butter - a favorite snack on canoe trips
-Any and all chocolate desserts at Cafe Latte in St. Paul
-Chocolate pudding that is still a bit warm
-Chocolate desserts at TAC Seminars, especially when they are served as the first course!
-Pink Polka Dots on Brown - and visa versa
-and on and on and on.....

To mark the day, I did make a chocolate card!  The base of the card is a deep, rich chocolate brown accented with a kraft brown and a shiny chocolate brown ribbon.  The giraffes and inside sentiment (Treasure Found from The Angel Company) are stamped with Momento brown ink and then embossed using Transcendence Powder.

This chocolate colored card makes for a fabulous masculine card for birthdays, anniversaries, or for a "just because" card!

Thanks for stopping by.
