I made this from a old metal tip tray. I loved the shape , so I had picked up a number of them for a steal at a flea market some time ago, but just hadn't done anything with them yet. Well, I had spray painted this one with chalkboard paint... which worked perfectly for this project... so the altering began. All the Valentine papers and images are from Crafty Secrets and are digital. You can see all their products here.
I just made the arrows with wooden dowels, and paper hearts I cut for the tips.
I wanted to take plates of goodies to some friends for Val Day, so I did some baking. I love peanut butter kiss cookies, but it seems like the only time I ever make them is at Christmas ( this is probably a good thing... because like I said... I love them) but these are basically that... only with colored sugars and chocolate hearts. I love to bake..but I certainly don't need it around here tempting me. Dan is an skinny as a rail, but doesn't eat sweets. (Makes sense).
I have to say I did not past this up. My friend Lynda, makes and sells these gourmet caramel apples and gave us these. OH MY! wow,.... best caramel EVER!
Tomorrow is "Whatevers" so please stop by by!
Until then.... Happy Valentines Day my friends!
Sending you a virtual hug!
