Valentine Chocolate Bar Thank You Card

I wanted to add something handcrafted to the bag of goodies I was giving to my neighbor who took care of our house while we were traveling.  Rather than making just an ordinary thank you card, I decided to make a candy bar thank you.  Because I bought the cute Art Impressions stamp at the CHA show, I was eager to ink it up for Valentine's Day.  I simply made a 'wrapper' from some 12x12 DP I purchased at Ben Franklin Crafts and added the Copic colored image.  The words stamped on the Paper Smooches die cut and the Doodlebug Mini Love Notes added just the right cuteness.  The 'thank you' part of the chocolate bar thank you card can be added to the back or slipped under the wrapper. Decorated candy bars like this would make desirable Valentine's Day 'cards' for special girlfriends.  You have about about a month to get a bunch done before the 14th.  You can do it!

Amazing what you do with paper! If I could only think and craft like you, gift giving would be so much easier!
