Valentine's Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Valentine's Blog Hop!  I am glad you found me all the way from Lechristina3 


I am always looking for something a little different each year to package a Valentine's Day gift.  Last year I ran out and bought dozens of the Target mailboxes, and then realized I have a cartridge that has a cute mailbox on it- Lovestruck!!  So, this year, I will let everyone else grab the Target mailboxes, as I have dozens sitting in a box already...Hahahahahha
I cut the mail box Fit to Page from the Love struck cartridge and the hearts I cut at 1" using the scallop heart and inside heart measures at .92 from Doodlecharms.  The phrase "I Love You" was cut from Gypsy wanderings at 1.47"  I don't know why the measures are so funky, I was just playing around on the Gypsy...
The note card measures 3x3 and the heart is from Lovestruck.  Pretty simple to make!!!

Now, you are off to the next stop Buggin Out Paper Crafting Chic  on the Valentine's Day Blog hop, but before you go, of course you will want to leave a comment and let me know what is your favorite Valentine's Day Candy, so you can be entered into the drawing for Blog Candy!  My favorite candy is dark chocolate covered just about anything!  Hahaha  Thanks for visiting!!

Minnie Mouse embossing folder and die, stamps and $10.00 Michael's Gift Card.  I will draw a name and post the winner on January 11th.

If you got lost along the way, go HERE to the beginning!

  56. That mailbox is so cute and too late to do me much good - my youngest is in junior high now so no more little home-made valentine boxes for school :)Of course, I am sure I can think of another reason to use it! As for my favorite Valentine candy - it might be easier to name one I don't like! I love the SweetTart hearts, the conversation hearts, and anything with milk chocolate!
