Sweet On You!

Another sweet challenge over at the The Shabby Tea Room!
The theme this week is "Candy Hearts"!
We were to use food and hearts on our project.

Hi There!

Another Valentine card was made today for my sweet husband!  It's sort of girly and frilly, but I'm sure he won't mind.  He'll go straight for the candy in the middle!:-)  I cut out the center for a Dove chocolate heart.  Little punched hearts were added with pearls and a doily to surround the candy.  I twisted white large seam binding and added pins, yellow seam binding, and pearl cotton.  I sewed around the edges to finish off the card.  Thanks for taking a peek here today!  Take care and enjoy your weekend, hugs!!:-))
