Hang Up a Little Love!

I'll admit...I had this plain wood LOVE sign sitting in my home from almost a year.

I picked it up after Valentine's Day last year and just waited for the right inspiration to hit me.

When I received the Fancy Pants Love Bird collection I liked the

 LOVE Sign

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro, Perma Tac Cartridge, 3D Combo Pack
Fancy Pants Love Birds Paper and Sticker Collection
Stickles Glitters
Colorbox Chalk Inks
Wood Love Sign (Hobby Lobby)
May Arts Ribbons
Puffy Hearts
The Twinery Twine


1)Trace letters onto wrong side of papers. Cut out papers, ink edges and adhere to letters using Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac.
2)Handcut the pennant banner, heart and bird design from the papers and diecuts. For the banner I used our U Cut It foam and cut pieces of foam to fit under the pennants to give height.
 2)Paint the letter "O".  Embellish with a puffy heart, slip a photo into the "O" opening or tuck a cute Fancy Pants Valentine image behind the opening. Add some sparkle to the diecut using Stickles Glitters.
 4)Tie a bow with the twine...attach to the front of the heart using an Extreme Adhesive Micro Square. Cut another length of twine. Wrap around the puffy heart and attach to the backside of the hanging heart.

Haley and I have become little candy makers! For Christmas we made snowman marshmallows (I will find a picture) and for Valentine's Day we made these...

 and these candy heart suckers...

So now we've decided that for Easter...we're going to sell bunnies and suckers!! Keep us in mind if you would be interested...Haley and I really enjoy making them and we kind of think we do a  good job!

Before I go....I need to post the winner of the Valentine giveaway and that is:
