Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Today is the day of love! Happy Valentine's Day!
Last week one day I sat down and created a little something for the girls for this occasion. I picked up a couple pairs of heart socks for Valentine's Day. Kelsey, Kirsten & I all have different holiday socks that we wear so I thought they'd get a kick out of some Valentine's ones too!
I pulled my color combo from the colors that were in the socks and I drew inspiration from the fabulous LeAnne Pugliese on a cute bag she made last week that can be seen here! Her embossed heart and pretty roses just sang to me! Mine is no where as beautiful as her's but i'n very happy with how these cello bag toppers turned out! Thank you for your inspiration, LeAnne!

I gave these to the girls on Sunday when we had an afternoon "game day".  Kirsten surprisingly went nuts over them! She loved the roses, the different embossing and the sparkly rhinestone on them. Kelsey liked the socks themselves and I bet she'll be wearing them today! :)

Valentine Socks:

Stamps: PS. I Love You
Ink: Rose Red
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, White
Accessories: Medium Cello Bag, Stapler, Roses, Lg Heart Punch, Fancy Fan EF, Sizzix Heart EF, Pink Rhinestone, Modern Label Punch, 1' Circle Punch, Liquid Multi Mono, Dimensional

You'll have to come back for St Patrick's Day! I found some socks for that holiday too that I know will make Kelsey laugh! Can't wait to share them!

Does anyone have any special plans for Valentine's Day?
My hubby asked me out to dinner but I declined because the restaurants are like crazy on this day. We usually do a nice dinner with the kids so that is the plan for us! I'm thinking of making something sweet for dessert....any suggestions??

Well, I need to go get my day started.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a sweet day!
