Chocolate Flair

For those of you not involved in my daily life, this is a big week. I am away at a training that I really wanted to go to for work (teacher), so I am in ORLANDO, of all places. Yep. On my computer. I am exhausted from the noise of the airport. I am playing calming music in my quiet room...ahhhh.

I get back to Neenah in time (hopefully, crossing fingers) for my wedding reception. Bubba and I are doing things a little differently and hosting a low-key tailgate party. There will be "The Bubba," a very detailed and special burger, brats, hot dogs and all the fixin's. We did include a few important things like favors for all our guests, as we love the folks that love us. In August, at a vendor expo, I met the perfect person to create our favors: Diana Navis, Chocolatier. Diana has her own local business called Chocolate Flair. Visit her website here. Her stuff is amazing! We hired her immediately and she is currently making our favors.

I had to add a bit of me to my Big Shot came to the rescue. My sister, her sister-in-law, and I spent about 4 hours stamping a topper to match my invites. Thanks, girls, for your help.
Anyway, I don't have a picture of that. What I do have is a picture of the thank-you notes that Diana commissioned. She picked out a card from my convention swaps. I changed it up a bit with the stamp set, but kept the color combo and the layout.

Stamps: Eastern Elegance, Kind Thoughts

Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla

Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss

Accessories: Tempting Turquoise 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon, 3/4 circle punch, Very Vanilla envelopes, Old Olive Brads

  6. I like how the blue pops the card with the one flower and the little tag.
    very nice! i need to play with this set more - don't think that i have touched it since convention!

  7. I do like the matching envelope- a really important "extra" that sometimes people miss- like me! Have a good trip back- did you get to do any Orlando things? Like Disney World and such? Good luck with the wedding reception- TFS!
