Here's the letter that was found on my blog:
 
I also have a fun project to share with you too!  Here is a cute little bag and altered notebook that I have created with Be My Valentine - Cuppy and Be My Valentine - Carl digi sets! 

The bag is a mini bag that I picked up Target in the dollar spot last year.  The mini notebook is from the dollar spot at Michaels which I covered and altered with Carl.


I saw people use felt with the spellbinders before and thought I would give it a go!  I have to say those Spellbinder dies ROCK...they cut through the felt like butter.  I used my sewing machine to sew around the hearts....and then hand stitched around the scallop.  Cuppy and mini cupcake where colored with my Copics and dp is K&Company Lovely.

Here's a close up of Cuppy and her Valentine!  I added star dust stickles to both of their tops!  Blossom Spica was added to the heart to make it shimmer.


And here is Mr. Carl!  He was also colored with Copics.  Hearts were punched with MS punch and then covered in crystal stickles.

Now I am VERY HAPPY to say that Jennifer Meyer...the owner of Stamps and Smiles....has given each DT member a Valentine Bunny to give away!

To win this cutie all you have to do is leave me a message answering the following question:
What was your favorite Valentine's Day and why?
Winner will be announced on the Stamps and Smiles Blog later.

**Edited to Add - The winner of Valentine Bunny is Lisa of Lisa's Paper Fun!**

Cute project and way to make those $1 spot items shine (and sparkle)! I think my fav. valentine's day was in gradeschool when we go to decorate shoe boxes for our valentine's! LOL

Wow! The felt really adds so much to the images. I really like your tote bag.

My favorite Valentine Day was Feb. 14, 1984 because that was the day I got engaged to my husband. He was definitely "Heaven Sent!"

What a fantastic idea, gotta love those $1 deals. Don't really have a favorite Valentine's Day but my most memorable was when my sister was born, she's 5 yrs younger and I remember my Dad calling with the news.

Cute project. My favorite Valentine's was when my hubby and I were dating and he spread out a trail of chocolate kisses through the house to a basket full of goodies!
