Happy Valentines Day!

I saw this idea in a Making Memories Book - Decorate Life: Celebrations and I knew it would be perfect for Valentines Day. In the book, they put them in a box, but I decided to just tie them together. I put M's favorite chocolate bar (Symphony) inside. Anyway, hope M likes it. This would be easily adaptable for an anniversary, or even a sweet Christmas gift, or to show your kids how much you love them (maybe in mini size candy bars -- just thinking out loud here). Make sure you take the time to give love and tell the people that mean the most to you that you love them. Happy Valentines Day!

Paper: Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) Sweet Collection, Solar Crest White (Neenah) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink (SU!) Accessories: Glitter Letters (Making Memories), white grosgrain ribbon (SU!), turquoise skinny ribbon (my stash), sponge

Here are a couple of other cute Valentine ideas:

These are small tic tac containers wrapped up with stamped folders with the lips from Hanna Stamps - Sweet Celebrations set and then colored with copic markers. I got this idea from a friend Tracy! Thanks girlie!

I made these yesterday for my sweet kids to give out as Valentines for their classes at church. They were so easy to make using my cuttlebug and nestabilities. I colored the Stampin' Up! retired images using my copic markers. Hope everyone likes them.

Happy Valentine's Day Amanda!
Sorry I haven't posted more lately, I have been sick too (hope I don't need to have MY gall bladder out too! No medicines seem to be helping though). Give your hubby an extra hug since I can't hug mine (he'd deployed).

Hope you are all better by now.
