Heart Shaped Sweet Talk / How Sweet It Is

This is for this months My Favorite Things GUEST DESIGNER Challenge. I will not get selected but I like playing along. The challenge was to create a project using any shape except square or rectangle and since I am still working on Valentines Cards I decided to go with a heart shaped project. I used my Fiskars heart Templates, folded a sheet of white CS in half and cut it out leaving the top part to hold the card together for opening. The Designer Paper is handmade by non other than e3stamper (aka Shannon) herself. She came over Sunday to play with her Mom and created this lovely sheet for me to use. The smaller hearts in the center are Quicktz layered hearts and I cut a slit then hand cut an arrow to insert. Stamped sentiment in Real red. I doodled around the base and small center heart with RR marker and the red heart layer with white jel pen.
Stamps: Sweet Talk, Priceless
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Black
Accessories: Fiskars Heart Template, Quickutz Layered Hearts, White jel pen

For my 2nd attempt I used one of MFT sets HOW SWEET IT IS and made a French Fry Treat Box. This is for this weeks Technique Lovers Bonus and Feb MFT Guest Designer Challenges. I wanted to combine these with todays Ways to Use It but I do not have any leather or anything close to it so I had to settle for just a double I may loose my Crown as Queen of the Challenge Combo's if I am not careful.Image is stamped in Timber Brown Stazon then colored w/Prismacolor Pencils and blended w/Gamsol. I stamped the large choc drop on the ottoman. I think she would want it that way. After all it is all about the chocolate isn't it?
