Valentine Fox!

I am very excited to announce that today I am joining the design team at

I want to say a huge thanks to Diane, Mian, and the rest of the DT. I am so excited to be crafting along side all of you!!!
So what is happening over at

Simply Create Too

It is mid-challenge inspiration time. Our challenges run for two weeks; and today we want to share a little something with you to get you inspired to link up another one of your creative masterpieces as we go into week 2 ofChallenge #53.
 Well I couldn't help but to want to make this 3D cut file from SVG Cuts.

This is the Valentine House from the Hugs and Kisses SVG kit.
For this project I turned to My Mind's Eye for my DP choices (Lost and Found Record It: Heirloom) and I used cardstock from American Crafts. The vellum used for the windows is from Papertrey Ink. I added a jewel for the doorknob and some pearls to the roof. I cut my pieces for the project using my Sizzix Eclips. The finished gift box stands 9" tall and can be filled with treats; or it can be used with an LED tea light to light up the mantle or as an enchanting centerpiece.

I will enter this into the following challenges:
CRAFTITUDE: #57 Anything Goes
Creative Fingers: #21 Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday: #305 So Sweet!
4 Crafty Chicks: #178 {Bling!}
Divas By Design: Anything Goes
Creative Cutting Challenge: #26 Valentine's Day
Totally Gorguss: #219 Lace/Pearls
Alphabet Challenge Blog: Y for Young
Cut It Up: #37 Through the Woods
Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget to enter for a chance to win some blog candy. All you need to do is hit the follower bottom on the top right of my blog. When I reach 100 followers, I will be giving away some sweetness!
