Lawnscaping Challenge #27

The current Lawnscaping challenge is to use the following photo collage as inspiration for a card or project.

Here is what I made:

Do you remember making valentine boxes to take to school? My children just recently made their valentine boxes and participated in a card swap. Each year they each use an empty tissue box and then decorate it however they choose. So, what better stamp for me to use than the tissue box from On the Mend. I just stamped the tissue box, cut it out, and then made a slit in the top where the tissue is. Then my box was ready to be stuffed with sweet little valentines. I used the card stamp from Cozy Christmas to make the valentines. The table the valentine box is sitting on is the mantle from the fireplace in Cozy Christmas. I just drew in the legs and then drew in the posts that are holding up the valentine banner. Thanks for stopping by!
