Are you ready for V day? I have a few sweet treats hidden away in my closet for my two closest boys. I made some yummy sugar cookies shaped like scallop hearts with red sugar sprinkles and they are already gone. We don't like the heavy frosting type in this household. Me thinks I should have doubled the recipe. Nothing lasts long here.
Now onto a few little goodies to make it extra special ,which will have to be bought tomorrow when I hit the big town. I have sweet memories of waking up before school and getting fun little gifts from my Mama. She always made every holiday special. I still have this little glass heart box she gave me. Nothing fancy, but I loved putting my extra special earrings in it. That might be where I got my love of hearts. I love them for all holiday...and in between. So know surprise that I gravitate towards heart s of any kind.
I thought I would share a few projects made for Pink Persimmon with some sweet hearts of course, pun intended. First up is a banner made from the Sweet heart stamp. I know I speak for several of us on the team....this is one of our favorite stamps. So versatile . I had fun wrapping vintage laces around each one and embellishing them up. The second project is just a card made using Key to my Heart . I fussy cut out my images and adhered them with foam adhesive. I added a bit of glitter on a few of them and created a banner from each shape. I will hate to see Valentines go.....I hate to put away the red and pink just yet. I hope to squeeze in a few more projects with you all though before it passes. Time to go to bed....I have a big ole black lab next to me...snoring. Hope you enjoy! hugs, cherry
