{FTH} Heart Bandit

Hello again-
I LOVE Valentine's Day!!  Hubby and I don't do anything extreme, but I just love making little gifts for my boys!!  Now that Buddy is starting to read, I can give him a card to go along with his treat box!  The cards can always be kept as keepsakes, to reflect on later down the road. 

For my little project today, I am using Heart Bandit: From The Heart Stamps
I am so happy with the way this came together.  My hubby was even impressed on how similiar the coloring were for the images being two different sizes!!  :)

Paper: Lily Bee Design: We Are Family

Here is a close up of the milk box, which is filled with delicious Dove Dark Chocolate!!
Yummy right!!  My little guy already saw me filling the boxes and has been asking for them ever since. :) 
Since "From The Heart Stamps" did not have a Blog Hop this month, all the designers were given a $10 voucher to give away!!  So here is your chance to win that voucher.  Just leave me a comment and let me know what you LOVE about Valentine's Day. 
I will select and post a winner on Wednesday, February 4th, 2015.
