Lots Of Love Blog Hop

Happy Saturday everyone, Nikki here.  I hope you all had a great week.  Welcome to the Lots Of Love Blog Hop.  If you are coming from Courtney at Krafty Keekerz, you are on the right track.  If you have just come across my blog and would like to join the fun, please start over at her blog as she is our lovely hostess.

This weekend is all about getting some last minute things done for Valentine's Day.  I decided to procrastinate on some things so I needed a last minute idea to put candies in to give to some of my family and friends.  I found this idea on Splitcoaststampers and if you need a last minute idea, definately check this out.  These took me only minutes to make and they were so much fun to make.  I made more but I pulled 2 of my favorites.  Enjoy.

Pattern paper is DCWV Be Mine paper stack
Solid paper is Recollections
Boarder punch is EK Success
Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Scallop Circle
Ribbon came from my stash

Pattern paper is K&Company KP Valentine
Solid paper is Recollections
Brads are Recollections
Boarder punch is EK Success

Here is what the two look like together.

I have made so many Valentine's cards that not one of them are clean and simple.  If you've seen my previous projects, you'd know that I always have some sort of glimmer, shimmer, bling going on lol.
Paper came from Color Bok I bought from Joann's
Sentiment came from Michaels
Ribbon is from Walmart
Spellbinders Nestabilities in Small Scallop Oval and Small Oval
Copic Sketch-E35, E34, G17, G16
Marvy Matchable Markers
Digi image came from Designed2Delight

For blog candy.......

I'm still not feeling well and I have not seen a store in a bit so the blog candy will be a $20 gift card to your choice of AC Moore, Joanns, or Michaels.  Winner will be selected by on Monday, February 14th.  The way to win is to leave me a comment and a way for me to reach you.  Being a follower is not necessary but I always enjoy meeting new people.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  A big thank you to Courtney at Krafty Keekerz for hosting this hop.

Time to hop over to Cindy at the Scrapping Room
