A bit late.. he he!

This was supposed to be my card for this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar where our topic is "Love is in the Air". I wasn't feeling too good on Sunday and Monday.. nothing major.. just full of cold again! so didn't feel up to being creative. Luckily I had decorated the little kitty gift containers last week so I had something to show you! The cute dragon is High Hopes Matchmakin' Maynard and is available to buy along with tons of High Hopes stamps from Silly Monkey Crafts. The gorgeous papers I used recently are Fiskars Cloud9 - Beloved. I would like to thank a special friend for buying my new Martha Stewart heart edge punch.. Thank you so much sweetie! I have used the mini heart cuttings from the punch to create the sparkly heart on the front and also to decorate the inside.

Inside view
- ok I know I am no Rach or Bev but I did try decorating the inside ;-) Plus it was another excuse to use my new punch!
