Crafting,Baking and Chocolate

I think the cold weather must make us want to bake...........I don't often bake........due to over eating the results.........but this afternoon DD and I have baked cranberry and white chocolate well as cookies made with same........all our christmas supplies of them now used.........while OH made tomato and parmesan bread........which we polished off for dinner with a delicious lasagne.......while outside the snow is still falling.
Don't know if it's the weather,but a few of the challenge blogs have 'chocolate' challenges this here is chocolate + marshmallow Anya.........I have a friend who this card will be perfect for......and just love the sentiment.

Anya has been coloured with copics.........the papers are all K & Co..........Craftwork Cards candy.......and the sentiment is Elzybells.
'Anything goes' for Anyone for Anya, Simon Says and Quixotic Paperie want 'hot chocolate' and Charisma Cardz wants 'pink,brown,cream,toffee'.
DD is going to stay with a friend in Battle overnight [crazy to go out in this weather I think]......she phoned the train station to find out the train be told "dunno..could be any time..they're running late..there'll be one sometime though"..........amazingly helpful,don't you think??
Now I'm just waiting to see what it looks like out of my windows tomorrow morning.
Stay warm and safe.

I love chocolate cards and have some great chocolate sayings, like:
"I could give up chocolate, but I"m not a quitter."
Will have to dig them out sometime to play.
And, oh, I love your card: pink and brown together are so yummy.
