Good Morning Friends!
Can you believe it is another week gone and time for a new challenge with
This week the challenge is
Have A Heart
Now I am going to admit that I am not a huge Valentines fan, in fact, my husband and I do not celebrate the day at all. (We both think it is a great excuse for florists to charge double to three times the normal price for roses (and they do) and for retailers to scoop some more cash from us right after Christmas). So instead of making a Valentines card/gift, I thought I would make a thank you project instead for a very dear friend and that is exactly where I went this week.
I took an old Ferreo Rocher Box (I ate all the contents over the Christmas break :$ spruced it up and on the inside added some gorgeous handmade blooms and some handmade posh pins to match the top of the box. And knocked up a cute little card to go with from all the left over scraps. P.S. All the flowers and pins in this project are handmade and I don't think I ever want to do a pleat fold ever again lol
Lots of photos :$

There are lots of things in this recipe from my scallop and inverted scallop punch, die cut for the sentiment frame, ribbon on the top of the box as I was afraid the G45 papers would be too stiff to mold over the curve on the lid, wood fibers, lace, lots of distress inks, pearls, beads and pins and a heart charm that I popped some doubled sided sticky behind and filled the center in with kindy glitz.
The image is Heart Wreath from Stitchy Bear Stamps and they are also sponsoring the challenge this week at Moving Along With The Times with a $10 in-store Voucher!
Stitchy Bear Stamps have lots of gorgeous images so please do pop over and have a shop.
The girls on the MAWTT team have also done amazing jobs with their inspiration this week and you can check them out HERE. We all some love so please stop by and share some with them :)
I am fairly positive that my crafty friend is going to love this and I can not wait to see her next week to give it to her.
Thank you for stopping in to see me today and I hope you like what you see :)
