Chocolate Distress

It’s time for a new cue word over at CASology!  This word made me think of heading to the freezer for chocolate ice cream.

Stamps:  Lawn Fawn (Here’s the Scoop, On the Mend – sentiment)
Dies:  Lawn Fawn (Stitched Journaling Card)

A damsel in distress…simply needs chocolate.  Don’t you agree?!  I have a piece of wall art in my craft room that states, “Chocolate doesn’t ask silly questions.  Chocolate understands.”  I really think the nutrition officials should just give in and make chocolate a vitamin.  We all know it’s a necessary part of life for most of us!  Perhaps my interpretation of the cue word is a little far fetched, but over at CASology we leave interpretation of the cue words wide open!

The ice cream image is colored with Copic markers and a touch of Crystal Effects was added to the hot fudge topping.  The main panel is a Stitched Journaling Card from Lawn Fawn and is popped up with foam dots for a little dimension.

Be sure and go say a quick hello to the design team members & this week’s guest designer!  They work so hard each week to create inspiration!

Then, don’t forget to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CST) for your chance to win a prize from Lawn Fawn, our sponsor this week!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    This is a fantastic interpretation of the cue word. I am ashamed of myself for not thinking of it as well, as chocolate is my go-to cure for all sorts of distress.

    Such a genius take on the cue word and I love the sound of your wall art! 🙂 Just got back from a walk with Tex and it's sunny and humid – I could go for that ice cream right about now!

    No, I totally hear you! Wish I had a tub of chocolate ice-cream in my freezer right now. It would certainly be calling my name if it was! LOVE that creative and apt take on the cue!!! 😉
