So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Valentine Holder and card

I think this should do it for Valentine's Day. I made this card for  Mark's Finest Speedy Cat's Challenge....a Valentine Card and also for Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge...using pink, red, white ribbon. Also will enter it in 7 Kids College fund challenge to use hearts.

I made the Valentine shaped holder box from Martha Stewarts template. Then used Spellbinders hearts to cut out the red and embossed heart. The card background is with GK bubble gum, red cs, the decorative paper is Bo Bunny. I stamped the heart with baby pink Memento and then used Impressive stamps and colored with chalk colored pencils. Added a ribbon tag from Spellbinders and stamped with Mark's Finest Hearts stamp. The bows are with white and pink heart bow on a red bow.

The inside I used an Outlines stamp and colored with copics, sakura glitter pens, added some stickers.

Happy Valentine's Day!

This is a combination card and candy holder.


Filled with candy!
