Valentine Boxes and ColourQ #124

Happy Valentines Day!!!
I hope you are having a sweet day so far :o)
My DH gave me a very cute card earlier today.

Today I have my ColourQ project. I made some very cute little candy boxes
for my daughters and one super nice soon to be son in law. 
Really, there are too many shades of RED in the scrapbooking world. I think I have about 
6 shades on here, the cardstock, the spray ink, the ribbon, the twine, the tickets, ,,,,
I really did start with the color palette in mind. But the reds threw me off track!!

Here is a filled box waiting on little hands to snatch it up,,
Of course all three of them like different candy,,, wouldn't
 want to make my life easy now would we???

Here is the color palette this week
Super pretty colors!!! 
Be sure to stop by the BLOG and see the fabulous things the ladies have made this week.
They are all so talented!!!

I actually made a card for DH this year instead of buying one. 
Shocking, I know.

I used the new Tim Holtz stamp set for this, the XO on the top, the trio 
of hearts in the middle, and the canvas heart on the bottom 
were all stamped with his new set.
The canvas heart was stamped, then cut out, brushed with Blingz (from Shimmerz) 
then I dripped Pearlz (also from Shimmerz) onto it.
Both of those Shimmerz products are from the Valentine's products kit. 
I have had a TON of fun playing with those.

I am also linking up over at
