Maritial Bliss is a 50/50 Treat

Happy Valentines Day blog friends!  I gotta tell ya...I love anything romantic, but I married the perfect guy to also have fun.  He makes me laugh all the time, which is probably why I feel much younger than I am.  To whit...the other day I was browsing the valentine/candy aisle and came across this 50/50 candy bar--50% his, 50% hers, called the "Martial Bliss Bar".  Of course everyone knows that to keep a marriage happy, the wife needs her chocolate (at least that's they way I've always heard it).  That candy bar says it long as hubby knows what constitutes his "50%" (more like 30%), the marriage should be pure marital bliss!  LOL  So sorry...but I just couldn't resist that candy bar (nor the pun).  So I made this Pull-up Treat wrapper for my hubby for Valentines day--with, of course, the candy bar nestled inside!  There's a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers website to make this treat wrapper, I just modified it a bit to fit the size of the candy I used. 

Simon Says Stamp has their current challenge for Anything But a Card until Wednesday, for which I entered this treat wrapper.  I don't always have time to do many challenges, but when I do I always like to check out Simon Says Stamp & Studio L3 (see previous blog post). 

For this project the following supplies were used: 

Tim Holtz (TH) Vintage Shabby Paper Stash inked with Black Soot & Walnut Stain Distress Ink (DI)
"1" "4" textured grungeboard inked with Aged Mahogany DI
"I am so lucky" & "you make me smile" stamps by Clearly Wordsworth
clear stamp "love"
TH Philosophy Tags "Cherish"
TH Journaling Tickets
black satin ribbon
May Arts ribbon, red

I hope you all get to have a little fun today!  Lisa
