Love Heart Treats

Evening all
My goodness how cold was it today?? We had a little snow this afternoon but it was a bit half hearted-we are going to need a little more than that to get a day off I think!!
I just want to thank everyone who very kindly left me messages on how to get around the problem of uploading my photos to blogger-it was so kind of you all and thankfully now I have it all sorted. I took everyone's suggestions to one of the techie guys at my school and he gave me a list of things to try in order of easyness-luckily the first thing I tried solved the problem which was to use google chrome instead of normal internet explorer!
I have been getting back into the swing of card making since my break at Christmas and am finding that I am keen to get going again.
I have spent the last couple of days making these little gift bags for Valentine's Day-one for each of my children-using a couple of new images from the Digi Garden, they are just so so cute and I have loved working with them. Jacqui over at the Digi Garden has been so busy adding lots of gorgeous new images to the store-if you fancy taking a look then why not pop over here.

For Emily's hearts on a String I used papers from my stash and added some shiny hearts and a 3D flower embellishment and added a rub-on sentiment.
For Elliot's Valentine Heart I used papers from my stash and added some little alphabet chipboard letters and a shiny heart embellishment.
Each card has a blank space at the back to write a greeting and they are then attached to the little bags filled with sweetie love hearts-hope you like them.

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:

Papercrafting Journey challenge - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend challenge  -  Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts challenge 149 - Use ribbon
Ladybug Crafts challenge - Anything but a card
Divas by Design challenge 66 - Anything Goes

Well nearly time for dinner so better get going.
Hope you all have a lovely week, stay warm and thanks so much for stopping by.
Until next time.
