You've got to love that 50% off candy right after Christmas--especially the candy that is in Valentine's colors too! When I found a bag of Cherry Cordial Hershey's Kisses, I immediately thought of this sentiment from the JustRite Stampers Loving Thoughts 1-5/8" centers : "Sending you a Bucket full of Kisses."
Paired with paper and striped grosgrain ribbon from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly line (Sweater Weather), and some PaperTrey Ink Vintage Buttons and small paint can, my post-Christmas find works as a Valentine's treat. (You're not allowed to ask if it actually lasts that long here. I probably won't even try to wait; I'll just take it up to my guys now rather than let it sit in here taunting me while I work!)
I used a Spellbinders Deckled Scalloped Edge Borderability to cut the paper on the bottom of the paint can, and both Plain and Classic Scalloped Circle Nestabilities to cut the sentiments and mats. Ink is PTI's Raspberry Fizz.
Now I have to share a funny story: besides the cherry kisses, I also bought a big bag of red and green M&M's and asked my husband and son, "Please don't get into these until I have a chance to sort out some red ones for a Valentine's post." Then my son got this worried look--why? He was thinking ahead to St. Patrick's Day and wondering if the M&M's were ever going to be fair game! It's a tough life when your Mom needs blog fodder. ;-)
Thank you for visiting, and have a Happy New Year!
