2 more Valentine Projects

Don't you just love that wide ribbon?  When I first saw it I thought it would be too wide for cards but I started seeing great cards with these beautiful big bows on them and changed my mind!  This card is made in Very Vanilla and Rich Razzleberry.  The stamp set the heart was stamped from is called Punch Potpourri because every stamp in the set had a matching punch so you don't have to spend a lot of time cutting.  I think we all love that!  I used the Tulip Frame Embossing folder again on this one as well as a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Verses.   
I've been thinking about designs for toppers for Skinny Bag treats for Valentine's.  I love the embossed heart embosslit for the Big Shot so I embossed a Real Red and a Whisper White one for the red, white and pink M&M bag.  Since it is supposed to snow AGAIN tomorrow  - sigh -  I thought I would make a snow flake one using the great snowflakes from the Northern Flurry die.  I added Basic Pearls to the center of each snowflake and filled the bag with blue M&M's.  I had lots of blue ones left over after filling the Christmas bags with red, yellow, brown and green ones.  I couldn't find the Christmas only colors this year but then, I try not to spend too much time in the candy aisle!
