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!
