Sweet Peas all in a box


Sweet Peas are so beautiful and delicate but they are one hearty flower. Any flower that can hold up through me has all my respect! Sweet Peas have that beautiful pink, yellow and beautiful light green color that is so refreshing and renewing. They hold up under the full sun and only require some water and love. My mom has sweet peas growing along the side of her house and they're one of the few flowers I've been able to grow outside. Those and inpatients. I'll take what I can get in the gardening department!

Even though she's off at CHA, Suzanne tasked us with using a new Lockhart stamp to create some type of a wrapper, box, bag, anything you'd put something in. When I saw this adorable stamp in Karen Lockhart's new collection in Susana's shop at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, I wanted it bad! Then I saw the Peapod of Hearts, I thought they'd make a perfect match for a container for Valentine's Day. You can put candy, a stuffed animal, or even a container of Sweet Peas in it. I received a box from Jamie on another group I'm in and I adored it! Thanks, Jamie, for the perfect Valentine's Day container!


I love the paper and the Oyster Bella Baubles. It seems I use them on everything! Can't get enough of the pearls! I colored them with copics and put some Shimmerz on the flowers and used Glossy Accent to make the vase stand out.

I wish everyone something wonderful and pink for Valentine's Day! Make sure you take a look at the other Design Team member's projects at Follow Your Heart!
