Would I like to...?

What a compliment! 
I have been asked to join the Sisterhood of Crafters
as a step-sister for this month...
Of course, I yelped, "Yes, please!"
The theme for this fortnight is 
"Thank"ful (use the word 'thank' on your card/project ... i.e.  Thanks, Thankful, Giving Thanks, With Thanks, etc.)
Here's my card...

I recently won over at Patties creations, and chose this image as my prize.
I was looking for an excuse to use it...
Anyone who knows me, knows I LUUURVE chocolate,
in just about any form. 
If someone was thanking me, a jar of choccy chip cookies would go down a real treat!
I finally got round to using an embossing folder that I have had for 
(I am ashamed to say) literally YEARS -  I inked over the embossing with gold and brown. 
I coloured the cookies with my promarkers and mirage pens
and the sentiment on the (handcut)tag is from Pink Petticoat, attatched with bakers twine.
Because pf the colour (brown) I used for the backing, I think card could be suitable for either
a female or a male... I know my hubby loves his choccy cookies too! :)
