Valentines Bucket Swap Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all are having fun seeing what our swap buddies gave each other. If you're coming from Wendy's blog then you're in the right place. If you're just coming over to visit (awww thank you very much) please head on over to Simply Betty's Blog. The hop line-up is at the bottom of this post. 

My swap buddy was Roz from Florida, very nice lady. Can't belive how many things we have in common from tv shows, to food, plants and crafting ;) Roz got me all of these goodies many which I have not used before and wanted to get but hadn't yet. 

Love my goodies Thank you so much Roz.
This is her blog
show her some crafty love :)
I got a bucket online and the things I got a little to happy buying didn't fit
on her bucket so I decided to make her an Valentine's Day heart box
with the colors I think she'd like from what she posted on SBS fan site on FB.
The box is like 10"x11"
and I used one of Simply Betty's Digital stamps
My Funky Valentine Betty digi

I painted the heart and roses I made with pearlescent acrylic paint
but it's hard to tell from the pictures. Everything is very shimmery.

 Note* I forgot to add the colorbox that's in the heartbox :(
but I added a bag of Tootsie Rolls before I took it to the post office.
Roz stated she loves dogs so I bought these peachy keen face stamps
I hope she loves them 'cause I don't have those myself. LOL
Those are some of the flowers I made and hand painted as well.
At Simply Betty I'm noticing that there are many many Steampunk
challenges and digis so I decided to go that route when buying the goodies. 
I bought some of those things for myself and I haven't done steampunk besides
this heart box but hopefully I'll be able to start learning this Steampunk style.
I wasn't a Halloween person but Betty's images are so cute... I think I'm a bit
of a Halloween convert lol.
Anyway enough chatter from me... can you tell I'm at home with kids all day?
Heehee... next up is Stacey . Enjoy the hop everyone!

& thanks for visiting.
