Joyful Stars February Blog Hop

  Welcome to the Joyful Stars February Blog Hop.  If you have come from  Nancy's Blog, then you are on the right track.  It is a circular hop, so you can just hop from blog to blog until you are back at the blog you saw first.  If you get lost along the way, please check out the list of participants on Joyce's Blog.
In honor of Valentine's Day this week, I have a little treat holder to share with you.  I bought these cute little mini coffee cups at the York Stamp Expo from one on the other vendors called Endless Creations.  They usually have the space right next to our booth so I have the opportunity to admire their make and takes and samples.  I purchased a large package of the cups and shared them with my friends but never actually got around to decorating one.  So, I finally decided that I would like to make them for a Valentine Treat. 

 Isn't that frog so darn cute!  He is from the stamp set C1638 Spring Critters in the new Seasonal Expressions.  I cut him out with the coordinating "Thin Cuts" Spring Critters die Z3207.  I used 3174 Blending Pen and coordinating inks to color him and added those wiggly eyes.  The XOXO is from the set S1504 - it is an old Stamp of the Month set called Typed Note.  The papers are from the new  pack called Regatta, Kaleidoscope and one of the Fundamental paper packs.  The cup is the perfect size for some valentine candy.

 This cup is one I made for my friends that attended a crop last weekend.  It uses an old paper pack called Lucy and a very old stamp set.  Sorry for using so many discontinued products, but that was what inspired me to finally decorate some of these cute little cups.
I hope you are enjoying our hop.  As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need help with anything.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Now it is time to hop over to Marie's Blog to check out her creation.
