Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello to you beautiful! Happy Valentine's Day! I'm very excited to reveal all of the fabulousness that has been coming and going from Sugar Bear Central for Jenn and Cheryl's Secret Admirer Swap!

My admiree is Janae! Hi there Janae! I'm very pleased to meet you.

These are some Valentine's tags I made using Glimmer Mist. I used one in my package to Janae and the others went to various hostess gifts.

This is a cherub box I created for Janae.

Here are a few other items I sent. I also included a cherub container and some conversation hearts but forgot to photograph them before I packed up the box!

A close-up of the heart I sent. Janae has an adorable daughter Maya (the namesake for her blog). I wanted the little girl in the heart to represent Maya.

I created similar hearts for Jenn and Cheryl as hostess gifts. This is Jenn's.

And this is Cheryl's. The two lovely ladies represent Jenn & Cheryl collaborating on this yummy swap!

My package arrived last night. I must admit I was getting a bit nervous about whether or not I would receive anything before I posted - well when I got home last night I was in for a BIG surprise. I large box awaited me and inside was this gorgeous basket full of fabulous Valentine's treats. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful everything is - my admirer REALLY spoiled me. I can't wait to see who she is! Photos were all taken last night so lighting is again, not the best but I knew I wouldn't have time to download everything this morning and I had to share this with you!

A yummy Victorian themed chocolate bar, one of three yummy glitter hearts, and Valentine's ribbon.

My jaw just about dropped on the floor when I saw this! A fabulous large heart rhinestone ring (which I haven't taken off except to go to sleep and is back on my finger as I type this)! I love this ring! It was on an adorable hankie bearing doves and cherubs.

Ooooo! More giddiness - look at this fabulous LOVE banner!

Tissue fringe, a cherub cookie cutter holding a darling glass heart, more glittler hearts, and two of the cutest towels I've ever seen (currently gracing my powder room).

An organza box filled with Hershey Kisses.

Cherub napkins, a heart candle, a Moonlight and Roses Valentine's postcard hanging, glitter birds, and conversation hearts.

A heart lollipop and fun gold letters.

Check out this cookie! Thank you so much to my Secret Admirer! You made my day!

Update: I just discovered my admirer is Kim. Thank you for all the wonderful goodies Kim!

Now go enjoy Valentine's Day and kiss your sweeties everyone!

How fun! I am so impressed with the folks in Blogland. Beautiful. thoughtful gifts :).

Karin (creativechaos) said...

Wow Karla...your box and hearts you made are just goreous!!!! Love them.

Fete et Fleur said...

Everything is so beautiful! The ring is especially wonderful!! Thank you so much for visiting me and you kind comment on the shoes.

I see that you do a lot of ruffling of crepe paper in your art work too. That is the hardest part of what I do. Making them uniform and neat and then hoping they'll survive the mailing!!
If you have any tips let me know.

Hugs! Nancy

Susie Q said...
