Love is in the air.

Happy Valentine’s day all my gorgeous crafty friends.  I was treated to a humungus box of Thornton’s choccies this morning and a single red rose – aw.  I actually managed to make my hubby his little gift this year – a box totally inspired by my fabulous friend Steph.

The box is a Sizzix Bigz XL die (Shaker Box) and the papers and stamps are all PTI.  I know I showed the card yesterday but thought the two together looked quite cute!!  Inside I put a chopped up Snickers bar (hubby’s favourite) so I guess this is the cheapest Valentine’s ever!!
Ok, off round to mum and dads for a big Sunday roast later – not exactly romantic dining for two but when you have 5 kids, romance is usually last on the list of priorities!!Lol.

Have a great day everyone.
