Do Not Open Until February 1st, so let's Blog Hop it now

This valentine heart isn't to be opened until the first day of February, but I'll let you take a peek just because it's the InStyle Stamp's blog hop today. Yippee! Have you just been blown away by the design team's projects so far today? We are having so much fun and hope you are too!

We are having a good time with Valentine hearts for our blog hop and if you've just come from Joy's blog you already have a good idea. When you are done here you'll be heading on over to our guest designer Judy's blog. Are you ready for the peek?

InStyle Stamps Valentine Ava is delivering hearts galore to go on this box. Inside this BIG little box my dearest Valentine will find a sweet morsel for each day until Valentine's day arrives. For forteen days he'll get a chance to guess what is inside all the milk cartons but not before it's numbered day. Do you think he will be able to wait? LOL If you know my sweet hubby you know he has an abundance of patience.

If you want to start at the beginning and get the details for a chance at a PRIZE, go to the InStyle Stamps blog and hop through the design team blogs. To keep a hoppin' from here go to Judy's blog for more hearts inspiration... thanks for stopping by!

Credits (I feel like an award winner, but I just have to say a few thank you's.): This Valentine heart could not have been put together without some help and coordination from my awesome Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Thank You Lori!, and my sweet mother-in-law who met us at a basketball game with her Big Shot and accessories for me just in case I broke my CB with the Bigz die, thanks CJ! But to really be honest I have to thank my sweet hubby who will not only enjoy the Valentine but he actually helped me come up with the sayings on the treat boxes. LOL We had a blast!Thank you, love.
