Chocolate Elegance

Here is a simple card for you today. It's simple but I think elegant too. The colors used are CTMH chocolate and vanilla. The vanilla piece was run through my cuttlebug using the stylized flowers embossing folder. The dp is AU Chocolate from SU and the ribbon is also SU as is the sentiment. I just think the Au Chocolate paper makes such elegant cards. This card would be great for a wedding or a birthday.

I had my Dr's apt yesterday. All is well except I feel like I'm gaining too much weight. With Tyler, I only gained 20 lbs and I've already gained 18 with this baby and I still have 11 more weeks to go. So I better start really laying off the junk because I dont' think I'm going to have a 15 lb baby! Talk to you all soon!

Don't worry too much about the weight gain...of course be smart and try and eat healthy, but every pregnancy is different. :0)

This is so elegant & beautiful!!!
I was always very tiny & for my first pregnancy I gained 50 pounds, I made sure I didn't gain that much for my daughter, I only gained 25 pounds for her, so don't worry so much about your weight! Times have changed since then so make sure you take care of yourself.

This is just beautiful. I love the chocolate and cream together. I'll definitely be casing this one! I have some of that paper that's just screamin' to be used! lol :) Thanks for sharing!

Wow, only 11 more weeks to go...seems to be going by fast. All the best, don't worry too much about the weight gain, it'll come back off soon enough. Just take care of yourself and remember that you're eating for two and try to make healthy decisions among the yummy cravings. :)
