Dear Creatives, Happy Valentines Day! Today I wanted to share with you some of the Valentines Day cards I made. Also yesterday we made cupcakes & decorated them. Sammie & I had fun together as she had no school. I am planning on trying a special espresso mousse recipe. I’ll let you know how that goes it is my first attempt, along with sharing the recipe later. Have you ever made mousse? No big plans today, just dinner & some sweet desserts for my Valentines. I hope your day is full of love, in one form or another!
Going to spread some love with cards today.
Here is a collage of several of the cards I made. I used several embellishments & some Valentines Day stickers & die cuts.
I thought I’d share how the cupcakes turned out.Vanilla with vanilla frosting, sprinkled with hearts & a special touch of love.
Sammie really caught on fast & did half the batch herself. We kept it simple we just got the pastry bag on sale after the holidays. I am excited to do more baking projects using the k it & the lovely tips it came with. It was made by Martha Stewart & I love it! ( I am not doing a review) Disregard the mess on my counters! lol We’ve been busy! Fun +Crafting +Baking+ Kids = Messes & Happiness
Some of the cards are for the Hope Unlimited Valentine project. I am hoping to make quite a few more since I / we have until April to send them. So if you would like to help be part of the project & want to learn more about it you can see this post about Hope Unlimited Valentine project. Sammie put all her extra Valentines together, added stickers to them & wrote a little note. We had fun putting them together. I think if we sit down one more time we will have enough to feel like we made a difference & showed some children that people care.
