Valentine Bucket


This is one of those projects that I started before Christmas but with all the volunteer stuff going on at the school I never completed it.
I'd had the paper and ribbon stuck to the can already. Figured I could use it as a Valentine Can. The Winter Bright SSK looks sweet doesn't it?
Not too sure WHAT will go in the can yet but I'm sure Chloe will find something yummy to put in there for a teacher.
I've had some of these cans since July when we picked them up at a hobby store in California. It's one of the things I'd been hoarding and it's now time to start using them up!
This is the top of the can. I used the Winter Bright SSK stickers on the top and then stamped the flower from Happy Heart Day in the middle.
Instead of colouring it in, I decided to use Cotton Candy and Red Stickles for a little bling.
This stamp set Happy Heart Day is now available to purchase from the Spring and Summer SU! Catty. It's so cute!
Thanks for stopping by today! I may be back later with the SCS Sketch Cards.

First of all how DEPRESSING it is to see the Daytona countdown now and it's STILL SOOOOOO far away - lol. Can't wait! At least we'll have the Shootout the week previous.....

I know exactly what you can do with ONE of these darling cans! Use it to send all the cards I want to buy ....... isn't that a great idea???? Gonna send you an e-mail of # and types I need and we'll go from there, ok? That stamping obsession of yours need to start being more of a $ maker so we can show Brian an obsession can 'pay' off! lol

The can is darling and all the recent creations are fantastic, as always!
Hugs,
Deb

This is so cute!! I'm loving me the Stickles by the way!! :)

How did you cut the lid paper so perfectly? With mine, you can always see that it was cut by a blind person. :)
