Chocolate Orange

Well, so far it’s a been a bit of a week. A pot pourri of things going wrong – some big, some tiny – the latest being a lost internet connection. As you can imagine, this really annoyed me.

So I’m posting this quickly, just in case it goes again.

I don’t love this card but I like it better in the photo! And it does make me think of chocolate oranges, which can’t be a bad thing. I never get Terry’s Chocolate Oranges any more... not since my brother finally confessed to my Mum that he doesn’t like them (she bought us both one every Christmas). Now she can’t remember which one of us doesn’t like them, so doesn’t buy any! I wish he’d kept quiet – I’d have taken them off his hands for him.

Anyway, back to the card... to get paler oranges on the white panel, I stamped off by stamping on to scrap paper before stamping on to the white panel.
