Love is in the air...

I made a card on a snowy Sunday afternoon that I want to enter in a couple Valentine challenges.  Here's the card:

I used Crate Paper Fourteen collection 6x6 papers, Unity's "Tulips and Daisies", and Close To My Heart's Whoooo's Your Valentine stamp sets.  The focal image was painted with Creative Inspirations paints using Tickled Pink, Blush, Winter Frost, Mocha Latte, Sunshine, and Sage.

I am entering this card in the Creative Inspirations Paint Inspired by: Valentine's Day challenge, and the Ribbon Carousel's Love is in the air challenge.

Next, I have some boxes I've been working on for our Sweetheart dinner in the nursing home.  The married couple are invited to a special dinner just for them and I've been working on the table decorations.  These boxes will be part of the centerpieces.

I cut the boxes out using my Silhouette and files from  The 12x12 papers are Trinity Company's Sincerely  (boxes on the left and right) and Echo Park's Yours Truly (middle box).  They are decorated with bling from my stash and 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon.  I'll probably put some chocolates in them for the sweetheart dinner.
