Happy Valentines day...almost

This is my friend Laura's Valentine gift...I couldn't resist the little shopping carts, and made a mini- milk carton and a mini-shopping bag to go inside with the large Hershey's Kiss! You just can't go wrong when everything holds chocolate!  lol

Gary is keeping garlic in his! lol

This is one of four cards I completed for a mini-occasions and sale-a-bration swap with 20 Stampin Up! demonstrators.  We each made 4 cards, 20 each...kept one set and received 76 more in the swap... So fun!
Love defined stamp set, cherry cobbler CS and seam binding, Crumb Cake CS, Scalloped heart sizzlet, white craft ink and white embossing powder,  the heart edge punch from SU/Fiskars.  

In a couple of months we have a swap coming up for our Simply Adorned charm inserts. I bought the medium size...1" x 1 1/4".  I thought I'd play with my Clearly For You stamp set (from the occasions mini) and see what I could come up with. This is very simple, but I like it.  I just had to have those raspberries!  I put this on a piece of Crumb Cake seam binding and it worked great. The chains are cool, but I thought the seam binding went better with the "mood" of the insert.   What do you think?

We are still colder than normal and the snow piles aren't going away, but I know Spring is coming...I'm sure its coming...It will definitely be here in a couple of months....
Stay warm!
