Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge - Valentine's

Hello Crafters!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  My husband and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day a few days early.  We went out for a nice dinner over the weekend.  Neither of us likes to go out on Valentine's Day.  It's crowded and we always felt like we were being rushed so they could seat the next reservation.  We had a really nice dinner and it was so relaxing.  We will cook at home on Wednesday night.

This week our Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is Valentine's!  I made this treat holder for my hubby and I'll give that to him on Wednesday. 
Kiss treat box: Dreaming Tree

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Tuesday everyone.  I hope you all had a good weekend.  It sure was hot here this weekend -- 97 degrees.  We have another Santa Ana wind coming through.  It is very dry and very hot.  It's always scary because that is when we get fires in CA.  There were two small fires yesterday but the fire department put them out quickly.  

I had some free time this weekend so I was in my craft room (my happy place!).  This week our Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is Anything Goes.  These challenges are always so much fun.  I decided to make this cute lollipop holder for the challenge.
