A Special Valentine Treat & a CHALLENGE

I recently "Challenged" the ABC Design Team to create a project using this theme

I love you....... "Sweetheart"

No other requirements than to be creative & "interpret I love you....... Sweetheart"!!
Each day this week one of us will share our project with you on the ABC Design Blog.

Would you like to join in on our "CHALLENGE"?
Mr. Linky will be
-----> HERE
<----- Deadline to enter your project is Saturday, February 6th @ 12pm EST

Random number generator will be used to pick the WINNER of a $10 store credit to
ABC Toys & Crafts

My inspiration came from this tutorial by Beate -----> HERE
I used the following dimentions for my container: 4 1/4" x 11" (this way I was able to just cut my cardstock in 1/2).

How about my little 3"x 3" card ? My son just stated that he would like me to make more of these so that he can give them to his teachers. ( out of the mouth of a 12 year old boy.... How is that for a "SWEET HEART")
Here are a few photos showing some of the steps in creating these fun projects

Verve: Tags, Tins & Treats
A Spoonful of Sugar: Freestyle
