WOJ Sweet Treats

My Mom came over today and we crafted all day!  We had a lot of fun coloring, giggling, *talking* to our stamped images, and getting full of glitter!  I managed to decorate two Valentine tins (one from my brother and the other for my sister) and color some fun images!   Tonight I will share my sister's tin that I of course used a Whiff of Joy image on!  (Tomorrow I will share my brother's tin.)  I'm entering this in the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge of Valentine's Theme and ABC Designs "Sweetheart Challenge."
I believe I picked this cute tin up at Walmart, but it's been hanging out in my craft room for a few weeks now so I can't be 100% certain that where I got them. Opppss too much shopping!  The tin has really cute heart cut outs that go all the way around the tin so that is what I wove the ribbon through.  For my image I have used Melinda hugging heart!
Here you can see the scalloped heart on the other side.  I've used my Pink Paislee Cupid paper for the heart!  Barb still has this paper collection over at EIO.  Plus there is still FREE shipping with order over $50 by using code 4SP9HD at checkout.  Don't forget there is still the GREAT American Crafts Sale going on too where you can get FREE RIBBON!!!  Here's the two ways you can get that ribbon:

1.  Every $5.00 you purchase in American Crafts products gets you a FREE spool of ribbon; and
2.  Every purchase of Thickers also gets you a FREE spool of ribbon.

Soooo....if you purchase 3 packages of Thickers and $10.00 worth of American Crafts products you get 5 FREE SPOOLS OF RIBBON!!!!  Click the following image to go and shop! :)
Embellish-It Scrapbooking

Now...back to my tin:
Melinda was colored with my Copics and accented with my white gel pen.  I added star dust stickles to her wings.  Small hearts in the upper right corner are stamped with a Verve stamp from the Hearts Desire set and the mini chocolate hearts are from the middle of a MS border punch that were laying on my desk from a recent card I just made.
I hope you enjoy your weekend!  We have a super bowl party to go to on Sunday so that should be fun...enjoying the day with our friends!  For those of you out east I hope you are staying warm and safe with the huge snowstorm....I don't envy you at all because that is normally the weather we have here....I'm so ready for SPRING, as I am sure all of you are too!
