PTI 5th Anniversary - Day 7: Hearts

Well, what I planned to make today happily lined up w/the challenge for the PTI Anniversary -- make something w/hearts!
I wanted to give out some little Valentines to church friends & so I came up w/these little wraps for the Ghirardelli chocolate squares. The pile of 15 looks so fun! And... I'm so pleased w/myself for actually DOING the something thoughtful that popped into my mind.
Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies: PTI- cardstock & PP, Nesties long scalloped rectangles, Fiskars lg. heart, Marvy sm. heart, foam squares

Dang! this was going to be for PTI 5th anniversary!

Pardon the sideways picture - that is the least of my mistakes this afternoon!
I was going to make this card (CASE-ing Erin Lincoln's card) for the PTI 5th Anniversary & then send it (actually them, as I made 2 the same) to Operation Write Home.
BUT....I didn't use ANY PTI product! I thought I was being so slick using this self-stick paper to cut out the alphabet instead of deciding how I would do the adhesive on PTI cardstock.
Well, I think it's kind of cute & I believe that some deployed hero will be blessed anyway!
Thanks for coming by!

supplies: Sizzlets alphabet, versafine ink, Hero Arts stamp, copic, Colorbok adhesive paper, red scrap

Here's my take on Debbie Olson's card that you can see here

I didn't have the exact Copics to match my paper, so I went for harmonizing. Thanks for taking a gander.
