AN EARLY VALENTINE

Valentines day is probably my favorite holiday. Not sure why, I am not a romantic at all and I think there is way too much pressure on the guys for this one. Maybe because I like pink and hate winter. The holiday seems a nice way to break up the frigid winter and pink is a warm happy color. I always think I am going to get an early start and make everyone fabulous Valentines Day treats/cards but usually time slips away and I am scrambling.

Not this year though. Stella, from The Greeting Farm and Mary's glitter challenge (see below) has inspired an early Valentine's Day project.

I used my Cricut and the Bags, tags, boxes cart to make this sweet heart shaped treat holder and placed Stella on the front holding her little message of love.

I placed some acetate behind the cut out heart so the treats won't fall out. And yes, I know the hearts are upside down. I cut it out backwards obviously but once it is filled with chocolate the kids won't even notice.

Sooooo, WELCOME BACK to our first Farm Fresh Friday of 2010!

We're excited to be back with some super fun challenges for you each Friday and can't wait to see how YOU get Fresh with the Farm!

Today we also are excited to announce the new "Brand Name" for Marina Neira's animal line! We are SO pumped about the TGF "Critter Crew" brand of stamps that we are actually celebrating by putting a little blog badge out there for all of you to proudly display on your blogs, too!

What a cute Valentine treat box! And you know, until you mentioned it, I never even noticed the hearts were upside down, so I'm sure the kids won't either.
