Art Impressions Cupid!


This is a dandy Cupid don't you think?! Gotta love those heart bloomers too!  I fell in love with this Art Impression Val Set stamp the first time I saw it!!! It comes with the sentiment 'love is in the air' but I used just the word 'love' from the sentiment by taping off the rest of the words.

You can see how the ribbon ties this box shut in this picture

I have had this Creations by AR Heart Box forever and never cut it-so what better time!?  I love  the way the ribbon ties the heart closed. It holds a good amount of treats on the inside too. Note: I did add an additional black mat under the white embossed heart for a little more pop.



Okay-I can 'splain...(as the little ones would say!)

I have been waiting to post this for an Art Impressions Challenge. Maybe they will kick me to the curb but I am going to enter this into their #126 Nautical or Travel Challenge by reasoning that this sweet cupid is traveling to his sweetheart-busy flapping those little cupid wings. Do you think that will pass the 'stretch the challenge theme' test? Please Kate don't kick me out LOL!

I am also entering this in the Simon Says Emboss It Challenge-I think I am safe on this one! LOL
