Valentine Treats

I like to send my boys who are away, and their girlfriends, a little something for Valentine's Day. This year, I didn't have as much time to devote to this since I'm working full time now. But I tried to plan ahead, and I worked on them a little bit each night. It's not my best work, but the kids enjoyed getting a little something in the mail, and they know that I am thinking of them, and that's all that really matters.

The plastic test tubes came in very handy, since they were really fast and only required ribbon. The Hershey kiss bag uses the SU Top Note as a topper. The image is SU and is colored with Prismacolor pencils. The candy bar is wrapped in Bella Rose DSP and tied with Pomegranate ribbon.
The white chocolate covered cookie is wrapped in a glassine bag from PTI. I decorated the edge of the bag using a scallop punch, and the tag was created with the SU round tab punch.
The best part is that I did get these out in time and everyone got them before Saturday. I hope you all got to show the people that you love how much you appreciate them this Valentine's Day. Thanks for visiting!

A Little Something

I am leaving one of these on each of my coworkers' desks tomorrow. There are 7 of us that work together, so I made six of them. They are very simple, since I was busy making a few things to send to my boys and their girlfriends for Valentine's Day. I'll post them some time this weekend.

These are recycled Starbucks Frapucinno bottles. I used PaperTrey Sweet Love for the cap and SU Bali Breeze DSP for the band around the jar. The ribbon is PaperTrey Sweet Blush swiss dot.

I am hoping my coworkers enjoy these.
Sorry for the quick post, but being full time doesn't leave much time for blogging. But I am so loving my new job! Thanks for visiting!
Happy Valentine's Day!

A Papertey Challenge

I've been checking Nichole Heady's blog this past week, but today is the first chance I've had to play in the challenges. Today's challenge was a sketch, and the prize is a complete collection of all the Papertrey ribbon. A beautiful prize!

I chose PTI Aqua Mist and SU Mellow Moss for my cardstock. I stamped an image from PTI Guide Lines in PTI Fresh Snow on the Aqua Mist. For the sentiment panel, I stamped the smallest polks dots from PTI Polka Dot Basics in Plum Pudding, stamping off first. The sentiment is stamped in Plum Pudding. This is the first time I used the Guide Lines set. You can make some very pretty patterns.

I have to get this posted, since the contest ends tonight. If you get a chance, check out Nichole's blog and join in some of the 2nd anniversary celebrations! Thanks for visiting!

Stamps: PTI Birthday Basics, Polka Dot Basics, Guide Lines
