Leap Year Blog Hop!

Leap Day happens only once every four years,
so we wanted to make it even more special with
a BLOG HOP here at Your Scrapbook Place.
The theme is chocolate,
and we have plenty of sweet offerings.
And what's a Blog Hop without some Blog Candy!!

Everyone who becomes a Follower of your Scrapbook Place Blog, and leaves a comment at every stop on the hop, gets their name in a random drawing for a sweet prize. If you've come from Linda's Blog, you're on the right track. If not, you might want to start at your Scrapbook Place blog so you don't miss out on any fun. Next on the hop is Carolyn.

Here is a fun hershey kiss card. I used silver shiny paper and cut out the Hershey Kiss using a template I made.  I then soaked it in water and crumpled it and then let it dry.  I used black cardstock and red embossed little dots cardstock for the the inner background.  I added black ribbon with red and black polka dot ribbon on top, placed the Hershey kiss and added its white paper with white ribbon.  I then printed out the words "kiss me" on my computer, cut them out and backed them on black cardstock and then glued them on the card.  Wallah
This is an added extra card.  I used ivory cardstock for a background and then used chocolate cardstock and embossed it as a second layer.  I then added a strip of kraft cardstock that I crimped and put burgandy ribbon over the top of that.  I stamped my chocolate saying and colored in the images and then punched it out using a SU tag punch.  I then punched a burgandy tag and cut it in half and then placed it on either side of the chocolate saying.  I attached that with some twine.  Enjoy!
