Candy for a Man

Hey there, hope everyone had a great weekend! Well, me and my classmates have turned or are turning 50 this year! I get together every month with some of them. This friday we are going to celebrate the August 50th birthdays. There are 4 of them. I bought some Whitman Samplers and I am decorating the tops. This one is for a guy. I guess men enjoy chocolate too! Here are the challenges.
Sketch Saturday #169
Just Us Girls #98  Chocolate Chip, Deep Yellow, Red Riding Hood Red, Olive Green
Oldie but a Goodie -Great Outdoors- I've had this stamp for a couple of years now
Creative Inspirations #125-Use Your Favorite Stamp-This deer stamp is one of my favorites!
This is a Penny Black stamp. The saying is a digital stamp. It doesn't show up as well as I would like it. It was a free stamp by Nettie. The yellow panel was ran through a Tim Holtz embossing folder and the other paper is Frances Meyer and Reminisce. I distressed the some of the panels by sponging brown ink on the edges. The punch is Martha Stewart and I added a brown ribbon. I didn't want to add much bling or flowers since it is for a guy! Thanks for stopping by!
