Cuttlebug Sweets For My Sweet!

"For My Sweetheart"

Welcome to our Love Bug Weekend on Cuttlebug Challenge we have a fun filled weekend planned with lots of goodies up for grabs. Starting off with our Love Bug Blog Hop. Firstly I'd like to show you an idea for making a gift for your loved one.



Made using Sizzix Takeaway box die and embossed with cuttlebug hearts embossing folder. Tied with a luxurious red ribbon.


Here is the inside of the box with the yummy sweets inside.



It wouldn't be a SWEET weekend without a bit of my sugar addiction with a card made using the adorable "MacBeth" by Sugarnellie available @ Funkykits I think you will agree this combined with the box of sweets makes the perfect gift for any loved one.


I am honoured to be part of such a very talented team of ladies on the cuttlebug challenge and while you been visiting my fellow design team mates you will be collecting words along the way.



So your Word from me is " AS "



You now need to hop along to visit:

Sally



Good luck with collecting your words and arranging your Quote.
