Time to start on those Valentines...

Now that Christmas has come and gone, I can get back to a regular crafting and card making schedule. I took a week off over Christmas, but now I really need to start on Valentines and birthday cards and even a few cards for other occasions.

Here's what I made today:

I've received a few new dies lately and wanted to give them a try.

This little box die is so cute. I ordered this die online for the specific purpose of making some of them to sell at the thrift store where I volunteer.

I think at least some of the customers will enjoy purchasing these (I sell them for just $.50) to give little Valentine gifts to their loved ones. I plan to make them in an assortment of colors.

I will also take this card to the thrift store to sell. I plan to display it with the little box, and hopefully they will sell as a set.

The inside of the card is very simple with just a stamped sentiment (Recollections) and a strip of the gold glitter paper.

I had fun making this little set. Have you started making Valentines yet? I'm hoping to get some ideas from blogland--especially ideas for teens.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

What an adorable little box. I can see many uses for it. I think it will sell well at the thrift store. Beautiful valentine too. With that simple sentiment, it can be used for anyone.

Oh what a cute treat box - and the price is surely right. I think it will be a good seller at the thrift store. Love the Valentine too - great job.

Oh, I love that box, Cheryl! Cute card, too. Good for you to have started on valentines already. I actually have mine done, but I realized I used the same stamps as last year, so I may have to do them again:)
