With love at Divas by Design

Hello blogging buddies!
I have been ick under the weather I'm afraid here so have been a bit quiet :(
My darling children gave me their illnesses (generous of them) so I have been ill with a nasty swollen throat and conjunctivitis in both eyes! I'm determined to get on the mend quickly though!
Over at Divas by Design today we have the new theme of "With Love" which can of course be interpreted for valentines or for any type of creation with love that you like.
I have made my kiddies valentines jars this year...
These were sweet jars that my daughter had over xmas (I love a good bit of recycling!) Which i cut out a heart to use as a mask for the window and then proceeded to paint them with a gesso and acrylic paint mix. Inside are the cutest pink heart shaped chocolates with sprinklies on!
(Do you like my bright pictures in bad weather too?.... new daylight lamp!)
The cute tags were a free printable download that I found on pInterest (seriously have to love that place for free printables but do watch out for the illegal Copyright breach of pinning images that you know you have to pay for) I then added some cute ribbon around the lid and used some bakers twine to tie on the label and my little heart key charm.
Here you can see the flowers I have added to the top and also some punched butterflies that have been punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
Do check out the stunning creations from the rest of my teamies on this love theme and please join us for a chance to win a fab prize from Mei flower!
I am entering this into Wild orchids Love is, Papertake weekly with a heart and fussy and fancy be my valentine.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again everyone!
Big hugs
