I'm not a chocolate fan.

 One of the wonderful ladies at my guild has a great imagination...she suggested we have a challenge called "All Things Chocolate" and the next picture will give you a close up of the fabric that sparked her imagination.  Now , let me tell you, I am not creative...really, I can recreate like a son of a gun but I haven't got a creative bone in my body...that said, here is my contribution to the challenge.  I got the cake pattern from  EQ...great software programme, if you haven't got one and was considering buying one....I recommend it many ideas and ..well you get the picture.

The cupcakes were easy enough to draw and the ice cream cone ...well that's just a different shape
 to the bottom of a cupcake.  I still have to do some embellishment.  I need to embroider the stems on the cherries, embroider the cross hatching for the ice cream cone and I think I may put some seed beads or bugles on the white icing of the cupcake  to represent sprinkles...they are always yummy on icing. And , of course, the wording is easy enough to figure out..they were the only ones I could think of that produce chocolate .  There are probably many more , but you know doing that writing was a pain in the..?)#@,
This has got to be a classic picture for us.  Tigger hates it when Faith steals her bone....and of course, Faith steals it all the time...she won't chew the one I give her unless Tigger wants it and has chewed on it some.  Soooo, Tigger, stole her bone back and jumped up in DH's lap with the bone.  Pushed it into his hand for him to hold it while she had a good chew....probably for 15 to 20 minutes , then she jumped down and walked away from the bone...letting Faith steal it.  I tell you, it is a circus watching two Shelties interact with each other...they are worse than can explain to kids about sharing.

I love it Gail! I disagree with your comment about not having a creative bone in your body--even Micheangelo got his ideas from somewhere.

I would definitely say you are creative, I love it!
