Chocolate & A Birthday = YUM!

On Saturday evening, we were invited to a birthday party for my husband's uncle.  He and his wife have just moved into a new house within the last month and this was their first opportunity to entertain.  His wife mentioned to me earlier in the week that the birthday boy was craving more of the dark chocolate turtles that I had made for the holidays.  I'm also a little creative when it comes to chocolate!

So, here is what we took to the happy couple as a housewarming/birthday gift:


I filled the bucket with turtle-making necessities so that she can make more in the future.  In case you are wondering, I use Peter's caramel and dark chocolate melting discs.  The bucket was topped off with some cute Valentine's kitchen towels.  Who can't use kitchen towels, right?

The little tin contains one dozen dark chocolate turtles.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I used the Hugs Sending Love Note directly on top of the tin.  It was backed with Basic Black card stock, stamped with the I Heart Hearts stamp set, and I added a to:/from: section behind the belly band.  The Kiss Sending Love Note is stamped with a greeting from the Whimsical Words Sale-a-Bration stamp set and features a glittered red heart.  I love the way this coordinates with the bucket. 


Just a reminder, when you purchase the I heart Hearts stamp set, Stampin' UP! will donate $2 to the Red Cross for Haiti.  I have some more projects coming up with this stamp set that I'll be sharing with you soon.  You are definitely going to want this stamp set!!!
