valentine blog hop @ shurkus.com: pretty amazing

Post 1 of 3 for me today (whew!)

Hello!

I'm thrilled to be a part of Jenn Shurkus' Valentine blog hop! Make sure you pop over to Jenn's and tell her I sent you {wink}.  

This is as masculine as my valentine's day card gets:


I knew that I wanted to use that CAS-ual Friday sentiment from the Truth is set.  Why?  Because it is the truth, Darin IS pretty amazing and I'm so thankful he is a part of my life.

I was inspired by the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge



I also have a treat project


I used the Reverse Confetti Sweet Treats Tent die and popped some of the Lindt "Hello" chocolates inside.  The Savvy hello die has been cut with black cardstock that I smeared white ink on for the chalkboard look and popped onto a straw.  The heart chippies are from Crate's Love Notes collection.  The paper is from Authentique. 


I purely bought the chocolates for their "Hello"...now how fun are they?!





Sharing the LOVE! Since this is the season of L-O-V-E be sure to leave me a little love and th  hop participants a little love as well throughout this series.   The more times you share, and the more days you share the better your odds of winning! Jenn will be randomly picking some sharers and posting them and the prizes at the end of this series.
