It's Blog Hop Time!

Happy Friday! Today we are having our first Instyle Stamps Blog Hop of 2011! Hooray! Our theme this month is Valentine's Day! If you came from Jessica's Blog you are on the right track, if not you can always start at the ISS Blog and go from there.

Valentine's Day is commonly known in Spanish as The Day of Love and Friendship. Now my friends and I always celebrate Valentine's by sending each other little treats and getting together and having dinner. Even though I'm married, I always try and show my friends that I love them too and am thankful for them on this day and vice versa. With that said my Valentine's gift is not for the Hubby (sorry but for one of my friends. This little treat box says Thank You on the front and the inside will say For Being a Friend. Yes I am a golden girl fan, therefore I will also include a little video at the end of the post. ;)

Anyhoo, I didn't want the box to be too romantic (dark reds,browns,blacks) so I picked pastel colors and lace to give it a sweet and girly feel. I used one of the sweeter stamps from Patty Love for the front (cause we all know the home made sweets are the best part of Valentines). For the treats, I will be making heart shaped Jam cookies. Yum. I hope you keep your friends in mind when making those Valentine gifts this year, they will definitely appreciate them..I know mine do. :)

The Prize up for grabs is a $25 Goodie Bag from Instyle Stamps
Your next stop is Angelique! Thanks for stopping by, happy hopping. :)
