Hearts and Flowers on Valentine's Day!!


I hope your day is filled with love and chocolate and flowers and all things lovey-dovey!

In the spirit of all things romantic, I have made a pretty, heart-shaped gift box... I left it on my desk so maybe when I wake up, it will be filled with goodies! (-: 

The challenge this week at Kaboodle Doodles is 
Hearts and Flowers! 

We are so pleased to be sponsored by
Pink Cat Studios!
They have graciously supplied FIVE Pink Cat Studio Digis as our prize to offer to you, our loyal participants!!
We were generously offered our choice of several of their adorable images to work with.
I chose "Birds on a Wire" which you can pick up HERE at the Pink Cat Studio Digi Store!
For my project, I used an SVG file I received from Brianna at Bea Originals. I loved the idea behind this box and the way it opens at the top by separating the heart. I colored my image digitally with Paint.NET and duplicated it 4 times before printing to make one strip that wraps all the way around the box. Now that I'm looking at it, I wish I had embossed the side panels. But, I still love how it turned out and I hope it has inspired you in some way to come over and join our HEARTS and FLOWERS challenge at Kaboodle Doodles!!

Thank you to everyone who entered our "Ribbon Stash" challenge last week!
Your entries were lovely and it was fun to see all the different ways ribbons can be used!

The rules for entering our challenges are very simple!! But there are rules, in order to keep it fair for all our participants and for our generous sponsors!!

We are sponsored by wonderful and generous businesses who have kindly offered their products as prizes in our challenge.  In the interest of fairness to all challenge participants, all entries that do not follow our simple rules (please see the sidebar at the Challenge Blog) will be removed. Thanks for understanding and playing along!
Be sure to visit Kaboodle Doodles tomorrow to see the winner and top 3, chosen by our Design Team! 
And speaking of our DT, be sure to stop over and show some love for all their lovely creations this week!
My fellow Kaboodle Doodles teamies:

Stacie (that's ME!!)
This project qualifies for a few challenges:
Digital Tuesday, Use a Die Cut (my entire project was cut on my Cricut, except my Pink Cat Studio digital image around the bottom
Cute Card Thursday, Hearts and Flowers- I hope this qualifies, since the name of the challenge at Kaboodle Doodles (my DT for this project) is exactly the same! (-:

By the way, on a side note, to all my regular visitors... You're probably wondering why it is that every time you come to visit, my blog looks different.
Bear with me!!
I'm trying to find a layout/background/theme I like... I'm really not entirely happy with this one yet, either, so it's a work in progress!
Thank you for visiting and I hope ya'll are having a SUPER Monday!!
