Pretty Candy!

Look at this pretty Valentine packaging of candy from Shari!  
I hate to open this because it is so pretty but I'm dying to see what kind of candy she has inside.  Isn't it cute how she lined up the messages for each heart?  She's a clever one!

Happy Valentine's Day!

So I was at Costco and I couldn't resist these pretty hand dipped heart cookies.  I wrapped them each individually and decided I had better share or this could go horribly wrong! ha!  

I had these handle bags in my stash, perfect for a Valentine treat.  I bought them at the Target Dollar Spot.  I just love that they provide inexpensive (cheap!), seasonal fun for us crafty types! 
I made a couple of quick tags using the Amuse Studio With Love stamp set and the Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die set by My Favorite Things.

Treat 'YoSelf

A new die set from Amuse Studio!  The gift card envelope die set includes the gift card envelope/holder, two word dies (thank you and for you) a scalloped frame and two small hearts.  There are two way you can fold the gift card envelope.  You can use the rounded edge as your flap or the straight edge.  The Treat YoSelf came from the Amuse Studio Meal Plan stamp set.
