Happy Valentines- day 2 -AND BLOG HOP!

Thanks for hopping onto my little place on the web!  You probably came from Nichole's blog.  I am happy to have you stop by.  As my followers know, I am just starting my Days to Valentines gifts - I give my sweetie a treat or card every day leading up to Valentines, and you happen to have caught us on DAY 2.  Sign up to get updates or follow me to see the next 12 days!

Our blog hop theme is Anything BUT a Card - so it was perfect that the 2nd day for my honey was a 3D box complete with a CUPCAKE!  I used the FREE set from Sale-a-bration - Outlined Occasions.  You can get this set free when you spend $50 (before taxes).  I added a quick-made cupcake pick using the new embosslits die - Fashionable Hearts and used a couple of dots to hold them to the toothpick.  You can't really see the sparkle, but I used some Dazzling details to the word LOVE to spice it up a bit!

I used very little supplies for this one and it came together very quickly.

STAMPS: I {Heart} Heart, Outlined Occasions 
COLORS: Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Basic Black
ACCESSORIES: Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, 1/8" basic black taffeta ribbon, Dazzling Details, Fashionable Hearts embosslits die

Thank you for stopping by - you can head on to the next stop on our hop at Peggy's   I have included the entire blog line up if you get lost - ENJOY and HAPPY HOPPING!
