Spicy Valentine Treat Box

Although DH likes chocolate, he's not really the mushy kind, so for V Day I made this little box with a spicy treat for him  **************I know that spicy is spelled wrong, that was on purpose for an inside joke*****

I used TBBM at 5 1/2 inches then measured the Slim Jims and stretched the length to fit leaving the width the same.  I used Sweethearts for the undergarments and cut at 2 1/4 inches (cut twice, once in red and once in velum)  I ran the red top through the CB and snipped the velum to look like an overlay and added some bling.  I doodled on the panties.  Spicey was cut from Songbird at 1 3/8 inch and welded.

It holds 4 of the smaller slim jims.  I also made one for the doggie with small dog chews, but he did not have hands, just a rather large nose and mouth so I have to make another one and try to get a photo before he eats it again LOL

Spending Time with Grandson

This week I have been spending time with my precious little grandson.  Such a sweet and happy little man.  I think though, that I am going to have to hide the key to my scraproom when he comes to visit.   Then he wanted to cut "just 1" and now it is totally out of hand LOL.

He also helped me get ready for a job interview.  I had to iron and he wanted to know why, I explained that they don't hire "wrinkled" people, so as I was sitting down getting my shoes on, this sweet little man come up with handfuls of Johnson & Johnson lotion and proceeded to tell me "don't go wrinkled nana" and put it on my face LOL

And today he had a little bitty scratch on his ankle from the doggie so we had to "cast" it.  After being wrapped up with an Ace bandage for 1/2 hour or so, he was "ALL better".

Here's his first time cutting, not bad for a 3 year old beginner

A little bored today

so I posted on the Cricut MB for someone to give me a challenge.  BugBytes stepped in and wanted a Valentine card?  Are you serious?  Me, with lovey dovey stuff?  LOL

Anyway I gave it a shot.  Got out the Gypsy and spent an hour from start to finish on this little card.

I used Heritage, LoveStruck, Sweethearts, EDPD and George.  The gate is from Heritage as is the little photo corners that I flipped one of and welded together with some straight lines from George to make the white little garden thing (ya it's early and I can not remember the name of them).  The grass stuff is from EDPD,   Hmmm I might have to go back and look at the design again, it's possible the photo corners came from Lovestruck along with Cupid.  I used Sweethearts for the couple.
