Chocolate Box Ruby - New January Release

Good Morning Happy Stampers!!!  It's release Day for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  We are introduction Chocolate Box Ruby today.  Isn't she adorable?  If this doesn't get your Valentine On, I am not sure what will.  She is a gal after my own heart with her sentiment, "You had me at Chocolate" and she comes with another sentiment, "My Sweet Love".  I love the expression on her face and I had great fun coloring her up.  If you haven't had a chance to go over to the store and see the other fabulous Sparkle Creations Stamps, head on over and take a look, they are all so adorable.  I'm still pinching myself in my disbelief I'm on her design team.

Do you remember the famous line from Forest Gump?  "Life is like a box of Chocolates, you never know what you are going to get."  I think about this every time I see a box of Chocolates now, lol.  And then I remember my Grandmother Margaret.  She would take a very small bite out of each of the bottom corners to see what kind of candy it was.  And then she would offer people candy with the little bites taken out, lol.  OMGosh she was a riot.  She even did this with the Whitman Samplers that had a map on the cover of what chocolate was what kind, lol.  One day I asked her about this and she told me that she was looking for the strawberry cream.  That was her favorite.  So every year afterwards, I would go to See's Candies and buy her a one pound box of Strawberry Creams.  In retrospect, I wonder if I took some of the fun out of it for her, lol.  Every year, my dear Joe buys me a one pound box of my favorite candy, hand picked.  I think this was in our premarital agreement, lol.
