CCC #115 & MFW ~ Have a Sweet Day!

HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!



I'm sharing a card today in honor of this world event, nothing earth shattering or ultra creative, just sweet and simple! CASology has a cue word this week of {Chocolate}. Hello... couldn't let THAT one go by!! And Moxie Fab World is holding a {Canning Jar challenge}. So this is what I came up with when combining the two together.


I filled the small Precious Remembrance Shop mason jar (New Day Stamp Set) with M&Ms (Our Lady of Rubber), trimmed it out, then added it to my card with foam tape. Love this sentiment by Impression Obsession and a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Espresso Sequins seemed quite chocolatey and perfect here! Dug into my rarely used Washi Tape for added fun.

 A fun M&M fact for you!
When our son was just a little fella my parents would watch him a couple of days a week. My dad would bring home a package of M&Ms from the vending machine at work (Ford Motor Company) for Joey. For a few years Joey thought grandpa worked at an M&M factory!!! 

He has fond memories of those M&Ms. When he was away at college he bought a package of them, saved the wrapper and mailed it to his grandparents with a letter!!! That's my boy *wink* 
 Oh and by the way...
my mom still has that wrapper and letter!!!


Thanks for visiting and enjoy World Card Making Day! 
Hope you have time to get inky!!! ~Lisa

Very sweet card and story about your son. I never would have thought that there was an M&M stamp, but I guess the creative minds in this business think of everything. Thanks so much for playing along at our Chocolate challenge this week. Your card is simply delicious.
