PDCC #99 & a chocolate monster lol

Today I have a little chocolate monster to share with you!  Yesterday I teased a little about my image being right up my street (or ‘alley’ depending on where you live!)  Well if you know me you will know that I am a chocolate addict!  I have to have my fix once a day.  The longest I’ve been without chocolate is 6 weeks and it nearly killed me lol.  Now, I just allow myself a little each day and I’m sorted!  (Hmmm, this is sounding bad, do they do therapy for this lol?!!!)
Our sponsors, Paper Makeup Stamps, provided me with these two fun stamps, he’s called Hershey.  Thank you for my stamps PMS, I had fun colouring him in!  He just makes you smile.


This week’s colours are really soft and delicate ..

Color Story 99 Lavender Soft Yellow White Paper Make Up Stamps

so it was interesting translating that into my little monster image, but then I thought about our wonderful Cadbury’s chocolate over in the UK which is wrapped in none other than purple (well a lot of them are anyway)!  Yay!!! Sorted!  If you do happen to check out the website link I’ve given I can highly recommend those mini Twirl bites *blush*
I’d like to think my face would never look as messy as my little monster though when I eat, but I totally agree with that sentiment lol.  Tuesday was National Chocolate Day here so this image is quite apt.

So pop on over to The Play Date Cafe main blog and see what delights the other girls have made for you.  The lovely Stacy Rodriguez starts with us today so don't forget to pop in and say hi to her! You will find all of the prize information over there too.

Now back to that bar of chocolate I was just tucking into…..
