A Lovely Blog Hop


I'm so excited for today! Sweet Jill over at Everyday is an occasion has put together another fabulous Hop. (Thanks for having me again Jill)  So if you popped over for a visit then you’re in luck you can follow along starting with Jill at Everyday is an occasion.  If you have been following along you should have come from Holly's at Ribbon's and Glue. This hop is all about Valentines Day – yep lots of hearts and Love :)

So I really wanted to create some bags to hold candy treats. I found the coolest canvas bags the other day at Micheals and that was it.... so here is what I came up with.
I cut felt hearts using a sizzix die and my cuttlebug then I used the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine to adhere the heart. I stamped the bags using Docerela Stamps - "Lovable" I also added some fun beads to each bag. Wow, I think I may have found a new hobby - beads are fun!

All filled up with treats and I thought this was great for my sweetie but.....


I couldn't help myself, I baked some Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies

Made some fabulous coffee with pink whip cream :)

And this is how my hubby and I will spend our Valentines Day :) Hopefully, the day will be as nice as this one! Can you see the sunshine - AHHH I've missed it :)

Well I thought I would give away a fun treat - How about a 6x6 pack of My Minds Eye
Paper.
