Valentine Box & Share The Love!

February 14, 2013 at 8:06 am 4 comments


Happy Valentines Day!
Are you feeling the love?
This little box is what my kids found at the bottom of their beds this morning. Thanks in the most part to the free tree and hearts which is on the Silhouette website.
I added it to a box designed by Lori Whitlock
I added the tree to the box outline & some love letters here

I added some blue card to back the tree hole.The hearts are in red and green vinyl & the chocs inside are mini matchmakers ( which look just like twigs in keeping with the tree theme ).
I made 6. 1 too many.
There’s a secret destination for that one!
I’ll show you Steve’s card when I’ve managed to photograph it; using the complete version of the heart tree file.

Hope today you can think about the love you have and give in every form and relationship. I like to celebrate Valentines Day as a day about the love we find rather than just that ‘special someone’ that not everyone has found.
I don’t want my kids to experience that gut wrenching ‘nevergotavalentinetoday’ feeling.
I posted this on Facebook yesterday- but it kinda ties into today.

Sharing love is also about not pulling each other down. Often us girls are horrendous at not seeing the best in each other- aren’t we?!
Hoping you get to share the love today even it’s just a little smile to a stranger ( but don’t go smiling at any dodgy looking ones!!!)

See you when I’ve eaten one of these

    Wonderful boxes for the kiddies! I can almost hear their squeals of delight. And speaking of delight, the grown-up treats look so yummy! Happy Valentine’s Day. You’re right too, more support and kindness toward each other should be the rule.
