A Spoon Full of Sugar - Show Us Some Love!!

Hello and I have a Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge for you today! Yep.. I have crafted! And it felt good! LOL Today's Spoon Challenge was my choice of a challenge, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Valentines day!! You see, it is a wonderful romantic holiday, it is Hubby's Birthday and it is our Anniversary!!! So we really have lots to celebrate for that day! Funny thing is.. we NEVER go out on that day! LOL hate the crowds.. so we celebrate a few days before or after. But I still love the day!

So my choice of challenge is to "Show Us Some Love!!" Make a card or any project to show some romance and love! And for me that was a great chance to show off one of the new Stampavie images!! This image is "Vintage Bunnies" from the Laurence Collection
Really... how cute are these two? I just adore this image, they are really adorable... and I love the "vintage" feel to it. I can see doing this all in sepia coloring as well.. may have to try that real soon :0)

Now my project - I decided to make a "goodie bag" Maybe find something special for Hubby to give him on "Our Day"  -

So my bag is a die cut  - Sizzix Big Shot Pro die Scalloped Bag - Love how simple these HUGE dies are to use and make something up quick. And no thinking.. and right now, that is a wonderful plus for my brain. I cut the die with a light pink card stock, then used scraps from my hoarded Tilda Papers sent to me by a wonderful friend - (HUGS!)  Love these papers, but they are just not easily obtainable here in the US. I cut circles with my EK Success Circle cutter and then inked the edges after cutting straight bottoms. Then I cut my image in a circle as well, with a Nesties Lacey Circles with a dark pink card stock.

The "Love" sentiment is cut from the papers - and then I added LOTS of rhinestone blings around the scallops. Tied it all up with a light pink satin ribbon.

I am very happy with how this one came out, especially since it went so quick. Now please pop on over to the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge and see all the "LOVE" that the DT came up with this week. Then join us for a wonderful prize!

Oh it is so nice to be crafty again!
Hugs and see you tomorrow!
