I Love You This Much

Good Tuesday morning to you all!  It's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Day.  Nela is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to NOT BE SQUARE.  I have been seeing all of these box cards on Pinterest and this was the perfect opportunity to give it a try.  The boxes are so cool.  They fold up last (see image above) to slide in the envelope.  Then when the recipient pulls it out it pops open into a box.  Here is a link to the tutorial I followed http://www.serenestamper.com/2014/01/card-in-box-valentine.html.  

How about that cutie patootie in the middle?  His name is "Come On Get Happy" and he lives at Sassy Cheryl's Digi Store.  He is one of Cheryl's newer digis and I have seen him used in so many cards on the internet, he must be her most popular character.  When I saw him I knew he would be perfect for a Valentines Card.  When my children were tiny we used to play the I Love You This Much Game.  They would stretch out their little arms and say I love you this much Mommy.  So here is my take on my Mommy Memory.  Cami and Jimmy, guess what?  Mommy still loves you tttttttthhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssss much!  Muwah.

Now what shape can you come up with this week.  We would love to have you join us in our Sassy Cheryl challenge.  There is a prize of two Sassy Cheryl Digis awarded to the winner.  Want some inspiration to get those creative juices flowing?  Check out the dynamite creations the rest of the design team has come up with.  Just click here and you will be directed to the Challenge Blog.
