My daughter Ashley wanted some help in making something for her boyfriend Tyler.
Now you can't get to girly and frilly with a boy, so here is what we came up with.
We ran to Michael's last night (yup she is a great procrastinator like me ;) and picked up this white tin, and this pretty polka dot ribbon. She loves polka dots.
We wrapped the ribbon around the tin twice as it was shear.
I made this bow for it, I liked it better with the tails, that she cut off.
She put some cookies and sprinkled heart shaped candies inside.
I cut the heart out with my Cricut (see I'm using that sucker for more than just letters, teehee).
Punched the border with a heart border punch. I was thinking of inking around the border, but liked the clean look of this.
Adhered the ribbon behind the cut out heart and then backed it with red card stock. Like I said the ribbon was shear. Here is the inside of the card. Stamped and then heat embossed the sentiment. Punched the corners and backed it with red card stock.
Ashley said the inside was pretty enough to have that as the front of the card. Onto My Day:
Hubby and I went out for lunch at Montana's. We aren't into the whole crazy Valentines day dinner thing. To busy for us.
I was so bad I didn't do any crafty things for my girls for this day. I did buy some chocolates and candy though ;)
I have been spending a lot of the day on the laptop replying to everyone who has entered my YouTube give away.
Spending the rest of the evening watching my shows. House is in the house tonight :)
Here is a double page layout I did in 2004. Wow that was a long time ago. My girls are so young. This is when I still did 8.5 x 11 sized layouts.I remember a local craft store had a compitition on the best layout. I won 1st place on this baby :)
Hope you and your significant other enjoyed your Valentines day today. If you don't have a significant other then I hope you did something special for yourself today.
Hope your Monday was a creative one.
