Valentine Treat~Mail Boxes

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hey there my crafty friends,'s the weekend!!
 Well, it's been a busy week around here...... My sweet daughter had her baby on Tuesday evening, yeah!!  So, we have been spending some time with them this week and enjoying our new Granddaughter. Her name is Lacy Mae~we couldn't be happier for their family! Arya is so thrilled to have a little sister~Oh my gosh, it is SO sweet the way she looks at her and talks to her...totally melts your heart!
I will be sharing pic's soon:)

I hope you have a great Valentine's Day tomorrow and have something fun planned with your loved one~Today, I have another quick Valentine project to share with you! I found these cute little mailbox containers at Target for a couple bucks and whipped them up for Arya to give her
parents tomorrow....:) 
Aren't they cute? 
I made a small panel for the front with papers from Recollections. I added a fun border using a border punch from Martha Stewart. The decorative heart My Creative Time's Stitched Scallop Heart metal die. 
The little bear is created with Bear dies and stamped with Beary Special Thoughts. I colored them in with copics and added a little Wink of Stella for a shimmery look. 
I tucked the fun little tickets I made in the slot which I used the Stitched Fun Tickets and the Fun Tickets stamp set. I tied a fun big bow on with ribbon from my stash and added a yummy bag of chocolates to the inside.  
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge~Sweet Treats
2.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #93 Anything Goes
3.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party~Red, White and Pink

  9. Sherrie, these are such sweet little gifts for Arya to give her parents! (And congratulations on the arrival of Lacy Mae! What a blessing.. and such a gorgeous name!) These little mailboxes are precious. I love the stitched scalloped hearts and the sparkly arrow.. and of course the huggable teddy bears. The tickets are the perfect accent and the big bows are gorgeous. :o)

    I've missed leaving you sparkly love... unfortunately my Blogger absence will continue indefinitely, which breaks my heart. My arm injury remains a burden and I cannot craft or type long enough to leave comments. I can peek in on my phone to see what you've been up to, but that's about it. Additionally, my sweet mom had hip replacement surgery. She requires my presence and assistance 24/7. When we are both healed up, I will return to crafting and commenting. Thank you for the love and encouragement you have always shown me. You are a blessing!

    Sparkly hugs and blessings,

  10. Congrats on the new baby!! I know it is so sweet to watch little ones with new babies they are just in awe of them. Super fun treat box they will love it!

  11. OMGoodness, those are amazing, the bows are perfect and the bear is just too cute and adds the perfect touch and Congrats!!
