happy wednesday :) hope the weeks been good to ya so far :)
 hey, guess what!
whimsical designs is having a design team call for the upcoming term. anyone whos interested in becoming a designer should click on the contact button at the whimsical designs blog and email stephanie for more information. 

this week over at WW our challenge is make a card or project using hearts. 
i made a cute lil 4X4 mini card and gift box. 
ive entered this in the  following challenges: 
littlescrappieces:anything goes

for the card i used a prima stamp from the jack and jill collection. isnt jack just the sweetest guy
:)  i colored him in with distress inks.

for the heart balloon i used my cuttelbug.i added twine.  the sentiment and the little heart in the upper right corner are from stephanies "with love" set .

the heart border is from the set also i stamped the larger heart close together and cut out to make one long border. then i used a smaller heart stamp on the insides adding distress rock candy stickles.

for the box i used my cricut and tagsbagsboxesandmore cartridge. i cut the box at 5 inches, it holds 6 hershey kisses. when the valentines ones come out ill add those instead of the plain silver wrapped ones. just wanted to show the box filled ;) 
                                              heres the top of the box where it opens. i forgot to take pics of the sides, i stamped the biggest heart on each side.

thanks so much for visiting me today. be sure to check out what the rest of the fab dt ladies have made and be sure to play along with us :) have a super fun rest of day or evening :) xxxshelly

You used my favorite little prima stamps. There is something about those darling little images that make me smile. Such a great set Shell. LOVE it girlfriend, and I am sure it will add lots of inspiration for the WW challenge this week.
