Sisters and Chocolate what a combo!

I got this set from MFT stamps a while ago, but with all the Halloween festivities, it got lost in the shuffle. Aww... Well, I was feeling a little retro and her fun flowered couch reminded me of the couch my parents had while we were growing up. Thank goodness neither SU! nor Copic makes that exact color of yellow/green/brown velour that I remember ever so well. Sorry couch of the past, now you're brown.

The DP is from the new SU! pack. Autumn prints I think? Not really sure, but I love the colors! And I am pretty partial to orange this time of year, especially in November. Not sure why, but perhaps because citrine is this month's birth stone? November=jewelry=citrine. Have I mentioned yet that my birthday is this month?? Darn tootin' it is! I think I need a countdown. (It's the 26th!)

OK, I colored this lady with my SU! markers and some Copics. I especially love the sentiment. "Sisters and Chocolate make life bearable." I do not have any biological sisters. What I do have is an awesome group of sorority sisters who I've met both in college and in the alumnae world. We didn't know anyone when we moved to NC and I met a great group of ladies through the KD alumnae association. Everyone's been so helpful and inviting and I've actually had such a great time with them that I'm the president of the organization this year.

Any who, this card is going to one of them. I won't say who, but girls, I can be bribed. :)

Gotta fold some laundry so I won't have to worry about it tomorrow during the festivities! I {heart} election day! I really do!! Call me crazy but I LOVE watching the states turn colors and waiting for the states to be called! Love, love, looooooveeeee it.
