Valentine Gift Set

I made this gift set for a friend who is *in love*! I'm in love too and we're celebrating 16 years this month - but this is *new* love - you know how that's different right? LOL!!! Trust me, I wouldn't go back to my dating years for all the money in the world; I love my man!!!

My friend's love likes to hunt; so we did a gift tin with Mallard Ducks on the front filled with Dove Milk Chocolate. Yum!! I had some Dove Chocolates leftover, so I made a little valentine sack and filled it up. Last I made the valentine card; I must say I love how the card turned out!

I once again followed Sketch Challenge #161 at SCS. (<---- click here to check out the weekly sketch challenge).

I love, love, love the patterned paper; I got it from Hobby Lobby on sale; I think I bought one sheet (12 x 12) and I've used every inch of it! That's when you know you really love the paper. LOL!

See that stripe of DP right across the middle? Guess what? I didn't have enough paper to cover the whole strip; so I cut it; then just covered up that small "space" with the scalloped circles. Pretty cool huh?


Here's a close-up of the large heart stamp and the I {heart} U stamp; I used my new clear Spica Glitter pen from eP to add the glitter to the heart and the words - I love how that turned out!

I seem to be addicted to Chocolate Chip paper; I've used it several times for Valentine items. I added the white polka dots on the largest scalloped circle and two dew drops from Ellen Hutson's store in the upper left-hand corner. They're actually covering up a little boo-boo too - but you sure can't see there is a problem huh?

Here's a couple close up pix of the tin - open and closed. Don't those chocolate hearts look scrumptious?

The "I luv u" heart and the "XOXO" in the tin are brand new chipboard shapes I just purchased - they're such fun and I love the colors. Matched perfectly with the DP I used.

Thanks for looking; I hope you're having a great weekend. Hope to see you again soon! Hugs, ~M.
