Valentine's Day Goodies 2014

     Hello friends & followers!  I hope everyone had a wonderful valentine's day!  Sorry I didn't get to post this sooner, but there was a mad rush to complete all the baking and creating and get the goodies distributed before the holiday was over.
     First, I made tags for the valentine treats (this year - heart-shaped rawhide treats purchased from Target) that Ty distributes to his neighborhood doggie friends.  Paper Smooches has SO many CUTE dog images out that I decided to play with a bunch of them and make a variety of tags for the treats using their Woofers & Tweeters & Paws for a Cause set: 
(I think my favorite is the one on the left of the doxie I tried to color like Ty). 

Then I decided to make one inspired by Paper Smooches' Sparks Picture Perfect Challenge's inspirational photo this week:
I drew inspiration from the gold and pink colors and the heart shape and created this tag for one of the treats:
The puppy silhouette, sentiment and paw print images were heat embossed with gold EP (not sure you can tell from the photo, but they are) to match and scalloped heart punched from brushed gold paper and I added a few hot pink rhinestones with my trusty kraft knife.  
     So, what do you think?  I am also going to enter these in Paper Smooches' 'Fun & Cute; Anniversary Challenge that is currently going on as well.  Here is a group photo of some of the treats all bagged up and ready for distribution:

     Now for the human goodies - I went with a froggie 'Hoppy' valentine's day theme for hubby's staff this year.  I found this cute little plush frogs and 'Hoppy Valentine's Day' goodie bags from the Oriental Trading Company and packaged them up with some conversation heart candies, some chocolates and other treats and sealed the bags with some froggie clips I made using PTI's 'Frog Hop' stamp set & coordinating die and some plain clothespins by Creatology that I purchased at Michaels.  I must say,'s 1/4" scrappy covered the front of the clothespin perfectly and was very tacky!  Perfect for attaching the frog!  I punched some hearts out and hand-wrote the sentiment in lieu of a tied on tag, here is a close up of the froggie clip:
And one of the goodie bag with one of the plush frogs posing beside it:
Well, that concludes my valentine goodies for 2014, I hope they were enjoyed by all and maybe provide you with a little inspiration for next year.  Thanks so much for stopping by to view my creations.  Have a wonderful long President's Day weekend!
