Happy Love Day!

This is the first time I have made one of these little cans, fun, fun, fun, and the fruit was yummy too! I bought a 4 pack of Del Monte Cherry Mixed Fruit at Wal-Mart. I used my Pampered Chef can opener, it opens cans without a sharp edge, and opened the bottom of the can, ate the fruit and washed the can. I put some candy inside and glued the bottom on the can with a tiny bit of E6000, just to make sure it stays on. I used patterned paper from the Little Girls 8x8 kit by Cosmo Cricket and wrapped it around the can using red line tape. I glued the rick rack from Wal-Mart on and made the tag with my SU! tag punches and the tag stamp from the Happy Heart Day set.

The card is made using the Scallop Notes Cards and Envy's by SU! Those are really cute cards with the scallops on the bottom edge, I love the size too, 4x2 3/4".

Look at the cute stamp! It's by Anna Wight, one of our very own Dirty Dozen Alumni girls on Splitcoast, she has numerous stamps at Whipper Snapper! If you have not checked out her stamps you need to, they always make me smile! This one is called Single Heart Tulip, so sweet! I paper pieced the tulip and pot and used my silver Spica glitter pen for the highlights on the hearts, and my red one on the scallops on the bottom edge of the card and the tiny hearts on the tag. I paper pieced the hearts on the corner of the envy too. I used my large scallop oval Nestibilities dies to cut the red Cosmo paper and confetti cream card stock. The Mellow Moss buttons are by SU! with tiny paper strips threaded through the holes.

I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with lots of hugs and kisses and chocolate too!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
