All That and A Donut Part II

So, it turns out that I did not have to give a donut box to myself!  My friend, Jean, really surprised me Friday morning.  (Spoiler Alert:  Jean, if you read on, you'll see something I haven't given you yet!)

Jean called me early Friday morning and asked if I could meet her before we both headed off to work.  I said "Of course"  and wondered why she wanted to see  me.  It was so mysterious.  Well...she gets out of her car with a box of heart shaped frosted donuts!

Aren't they pretty?  Almost too pretty to eat...ALMOST!  I did share a few with people I work with and brought home a couple (one more for me and one for Dennis).

I found some darling stationery from Paper Glitter.  This is just a small portion of the complete set - it is ADORABLE!  There are notecards, check off lists, labels, stickers, cards, envelopes...  I used a card to create the oval tag.  

The tag has a back, too, created with one of the check off lists.  Now I have a perfect place to write a little something.  I used an oval frame die.  This little trick will keep the frame piece and the interior piece together:

To keep the inside piece together with the scalloped frame, I kept the cut paper in the die, turned it over and taped the backside.  I did that with both the front of the tag and the back and then glued them together.

The sentiment is part of a set from Reverse Confetti.  

So, thank you, Jean!  Not only did you give me one of my favorite things on Valentine's Day, but you also surprised me.  I love surprises and don't get them that often!  See you for lunch soon...

Have a lovely week everyone!
