Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines to all!

We spent the day in various family activities - church, lunch with friends and grandparents, naps, geocacheing and pizza for dinner. James and I have a hot date scheduled tomorrow night after the crowds are gone from the restaurants.

I sent little candy machine valentines, made in a class hosted by Cheryl (second photo down), to preschool with Zack. I don't know what the kids thought of them, but Zack was really excited. So, when it was time to make a Valentine for Zack, I thought this over-the-top version would be just the thing. It was made from the packaging for Terrifically Tacky Tape, by Provo Craft, which I picked up at Walmart (this is the same as Sticky Strip or Art Accentz Terrifically Tacky Tape). The tape package has a raised plastic circle, which I cut out and used like Stampin' Up's Sweet Treat Cups, just much bigger. I had to draw the hot air balloon myself, but it was pretty simple. The "Sweet You" is done with stamps. Zack was appropriately enthusiastic. :)


  1. Wow! I'm so impressed Deanna! It's beautiful!!

  2. Sooooo cute! Jacob would have been over the moon about that kind of thing, too. I'm betting Zack will remember that card when he's an adult. You know? In that sweet, hazy, childhood memory sort of way. I wonder if those hazy childhood memories will be any different for our kids with blogs and digital pics and all.

  3. I posted a comment but I don't know where it went! Anyway, this is Awesome! You are amazing Deanna! I wish I had thought of this. I just threw away two of those packaging cups. Rats!
