Hop & Shop with My Favorite Things!

Hi there! You've reached my stop on the MFT December Blog Hop! All of the new sets have just been released HERE at My Favorite Things! If you didn't start at Kim's Blog, go back -- you don't want to miss anything! :)

I'm so excited to show you Truffles Flopsey! I {heart} this bunny, and I {heart} chocolate -- it's a perfect combination! I altered a rectangular window tin and made a matching card to create a little Valentine gift.

The paper is Bittersweet by BasicGrey. I did a lot of machine stitching on the card. The ribbon and button are also from MFT.

Here's the matching tin. I added some white crystal Adornments to the scallops, and I used a Sakura Clear Glaze pen on the chocolates.

Now, if all of this doesn't already say "I love you," there's more! I sliced address labels into narrow strips and stamped part of the sentiment on each. Then I just wrapped them around the chocolate nuggets!

I hope you enjoyed my stop on the Hop! Next, you'll be visiting Chris Veneruso, who is part of the mega-talented December Temp Team! I'm sure she has something fantastic to show you, so be sure to give her lots of love! :)

Thanks so much for hopping by!
Christina
