Sweet Treats

Happy Valentine's Day!!  I'm here with some sweet treats I mailed to my daughter in college.  We've been making these for years.  Just place a Hershey's kiss on a pretzel square and put in an oven about 225 degrees for a couple of minutes the take them out and quickly push an M&M in the center.  They are just the right mix of sweet and salty.  I found this corsage box for .50 at Hobby Lobby.  It was perfect for what I needed.

Here is the completed package.  I put some tissue inside the box so the treats wouldn't be thrown all around. The Sweet Treats and Banner stamp are both by Verve.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Ladybug for my Lovebug

Here's a card I made for my lovebug  :)   This is a free digi from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
called Little Lady Bug.  Tricia always has a free weekly cutting file as well!  Her images are sooo cute!  Check them out!

I originally colored her with Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol but I ended up going over the black with a black Copic.  I always do the skin with Copics.  I used blue chalk for the background/shadow but it just does not show at all in this pic.  I used black diamond Stickles on her dots.  I used some old corner rounder scissors, Oval Doily by Cottage Cutz, Fishtail Flags by MFT.


I haven't decorated the outside of an envelope in years!  I stippled the clouds with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue and hand drew the lady bug trail.  I mailed it almost a week ago and she hasn't received it yet!  I did seal the back with washi tape so I really hope one of the machines didn't eat it!!

Hope everyone is having a good week!  I'll be back with more this week  :)

There's No One Like You

Hi All!  
Geesh being sick and busy is not a good combo!  Usually by this time of the year I have tons of Valentine's completed!  Oh well...guess I'll just have to eat the candy I don't have time to package and decorate!  Mmmm...nom nom...LOL...that's the sound of a true chocoholic!  :)  

Well I did get this one completed and mailed to my daughter in college.  She just loves those Andes candies.  When we would go out to eat at The Olive Garden they would bring everyone at the table a candy with the bill...well she usually ate them all!  And want to ask for more!  LOL!  Hmm wonder where she gets that from??  :)

The paper is old from my stash, black CANDI dots, sentiment by MFT, ladybug stamp is from a square peg set and don't remember who made it (sorry) colored with Copic RV29 and Stickles.

More Valentine's to come!  Thanks for stopping by!  Kathi
