Confession. I promised myself not to sign up for any swaps (except my upline's) for 5 months. Then I turned around and signed up for my Hot Swappin Mamas scrapbook swap again. I am so naughty - but I had the Cupid idea and I just had to swap him with someone! You understand right? I'm not too weak and spineless, am I?
I am supposed to make three 3-D items for this Valentine Swap and am supposed to use Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, and Creamy Carmel (typing that name always makes me want sweets)
I remade Cupid with Close to Cocoa hair to meet the requirements and I made a mailbox for my second item. This shows the completed mailbox plus just the "wood" parts so you can see how it is made.
Stamp Chocolate Chip (yes, I said STAMP, I do own
5/16 inches by 4.25 long for the basic post
