Good evening everyone,

I hope your day of Love was a great one. It has been relaxing here and can't wait to sit down in front of the TV after dinner and have a long rest. I thought I had better come and sign on and upload my box of candy I altered.

I made my box of bought candy into something *SPECIAL* and personal. As you can see I just bought a normal box of chocolates in a tin and then I made a band to go around it with cutout hearts, doilies, ribbon, flowers and a very cute H&S image that I masked with the basket of hearts. The heart on the back of the band is made from a very soft and pretty piece of velvet feel paper. I took some eyelet lace and sewed it around it and attached it the band so that it all will slip off of the candy tin. I have colored my images with my copic markers.

Challenges for this project:

Crazy4Challenges ..........RED create a card/project using red as the main color.
Stamp Something Challenge is for SOMETHING CUTE
Stampin for the weekend.......Valentines Themed
We'd like to see some projects and cards with a theme of Valentines Day

Thanks for stopping by today!!
Many blessings, Janiel
