A Little Late...

Well, today I made Valentine's for my Bible Study girls (a little late). I was going to make them last week but since it took so long for me to get my SU! order I had to wait until this week. It's alright though because they will still mean the same! :D I got the idea for these cute sucker holders from Dawn who has been such an inspiration to me! She has tons of great tutorials and her stuff is amazing! If you haven't checked out her blog before, DO IT! You won't be disappointed, I promise! I also got the idea for my 2nd grader's Valentine's from her as well! :D I had never tried watercoloring before until I made these so it was definitely a learning experience. I had fun making them though and really like how they turned out. I kind of had to improvise since I don't have any Valentine stamps but it works! Let me know what you think! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a GREAT week!

Paper: Whisper White, Lovely Lilac, Pixie Pink, Pretty in Pink, Taken with Teal
