Woodland Valentine Cards

I wanted to make some unique cards to give out at school on Valentine's Day. I love this free Woodland Critter file I found via Pinterest called In The Woods by Harper Finch - check out website...

One little critter (the squirrel) on here was found on this website.
After printing the images on card stock and cutting them out, I inked around the edges.
Thank you for stopping by! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Move Forward Quote

This quote is from a talk titled "You Can Do it Now!" by Dieter F. Uchtdorf . It is important to not think we have failed because some areas in our lives are not perfect. Life is full of challenges but through those challenges we grow, even though we may stumble. This quote relates to one of my favorite analogies of getting bucked off a horse. What do you do?  Get up, shake off the dust and then, get back up on that horse again. Your destiny is not determined by the hurdles, the bumps in the road or the wild ride you may be on - you determine your destiny through your determination to not let those challenges stop you in your tracks. RISE UP, DUST YOURSELF OFF AND MOVE FORWARD!

Valentine Paper Candy Bouquet

Hello! Welcome to my blog! 
I made these bouquets for a surprise Valentine that I left at the recipients door. These are paper hearts with conversation hearts inside of them. 

I printed the hearts out on different colored cardstock. I used a hot glue to glue the hearts together making a pocket so I could add a few candies to each one, and then gluing the bottom shut after inserting a skewer. 

For the base I used a large soup tin, put plaster in the bottom for weight, and glued a styrofoam ball in the bottom to insert the heart skewers. I filled the can with shredded paper.

The paper hearts I made had a spiritual message on the backside that are below if you would like to used them.

Thanks for stopping by!
