Valentine's Nugget Boxes

I made these for my Bible study group and some of my friends. Each holds 4 Hershey's Nuggets. The verse was done on patterned dp on the computer. We are studying Isaiah so this was the best love verse for Valentine's Day.

Nugget Box Valentine with Scriptures

This is a nugget box I made for my High school Bible drillers. I am thinking of taking some to the nursing home, too. Here is a link to the nugget box pattern. I punched a hole in the round tag. Then, I wrapped the ribbon around the box and secured it with a little glue. Next, I pulled both ends of the ribbon through the hole and tied the bow. You don't need a knot first because the tag holds it together.

Stamps: PSX heart
Paper: Real Red, dp from Joanns, white, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Memento Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Nesties, Copics, Hershey's nuggets

Embossing Arts Butterfly Birthday Card

I made this card for the #43 Copic Creations Challenge. You are supposed to use cool colors so I used mostly blues and cool grey. I tried a dot background for the first time. I also sponged over the dots with grey and blues and a little amethyst.

Me and Carrie Lou Violet Bday Card

This is my first time coloring on a gold embossed image. Not sure I like it as well as just black memento ink. It was harder for me to blend colors. I have taken this card apart at least 4 times. Having one of those days.
