Valentine Treat Boxes

I wanted to make the boys something small/quick to give to their teachers for Valentine's Day.
SCS had this tuturiol on very cute Ghirardelli boxes.
I have four chocolate squares in each box...tight but they fit.
The patterened paper is SU!. The circle and scalloped circle are SU! Cardstock is from my local PaperPlus store.
All stamps are AMuse. I added stickles and a red AMuse sticker for some added bling.
I like how these little boxes came together...quick and easy.

Family Valentine Cards

I finally finished and mailed off my Valentin's Day cards today. Some may come a bit late. Sorry .... life just gets in the way sometimes.
All the cards today are from the AMuse Love/Valentine's collection. I am so addicted to AMuse these days and went totally overboard with AMuse shopping lately. Partially because we have a new scrapbooking/stamping store here in the Phoenix area. It's only been opened two weeks now and I have shopped at CropGirls three times already. about being addicted. *grin* Plus I have ordered online from AMuse. So much for being on a budget lately.

Here are the family Valentine cards....all stamps are AMuse.

Sorry about the poor quality scan...scanner still acting a bit wonky. And I was just too lazy to set up with my digital camera.
Not sure if it shows up but I used the plain oval Nestie as a frame around each stamped image. IRL it looks pretty nice. I colored the soda and sunday images with my Glaze embossing pens and also used stickles...really adds the sparkle. I added an AMuse Mini dots twinkle stickers for the cherry on top of the ice cream.
For the chocolate I used my prisma pencils to color the image. I just love the new sentiment..."I love you more than..." Just so sweet!

I'm working on teacher gifts for my grandsons to give tomorrow. Will post those tomorrow.

Valentine Day Card

I have been busy this week making Valentine Day cards. Unfortunately my scanner has been acting up and acting kinda funky. So please excuse these weird scans.

This cute little card is for my Grand daughter Melanie. She is eight months old today and sooo adorable. I miss her...she live in Reno and I'm in Phoenix. *sigh*

This card was inspired by a card Jennifer posted on her blog. I also was inspired by Rose Ann of Paper Delightz for the shape/design of this card. Make sure you stop by their blog for some great inspiration! Both of these ladies are super talented.
I wanted to used my new heart nesties and this little mousie was just wanting to be inked.
And anyone who knows me .... knows I hate mice! *shiver* But this little guy is cute. He's from the SU! set Happy Heart Day.

Chocolate and Pink

I just love how chocolate and pink go together so well...don't you?
And when I was creating this card I just kept thinking of chocolate fudge brownies...yum o! So I started rummaging through my embossing jars to find something special for this cute bday card.
I found the perfect embossing powder for these yummy birthday cupcakes. Chocolate Brownie Scented embossing powder!!! Ohhhh My Goodness it actually smells like chocolate.

This card is longer than what I normally make...but I wanted to place three cupcakes on this card. I read somewhere that an odd number of items is more pleasing to the eye.
This cute little cupcake set is by Close To My Heart (CTMH) which I received from my daughter for Christmas.
I used stickles for the sprinkles for a bit of bling. The solid paper is Bazzill and the background paper is from that large slab I bought eons ago from Costco. Ribbon is from a ribbon share.

Go Cardinals!!!!
