Valentines for Scout

First of all I must apologize for the poor quality photo, but it is night time, and the lighting kinda sucks, and Scout is taking the Valentines to school tomorrow so I MUST take the photo tonight! SO, though it is hard to see I will show you anyway. I got this cute little stamp set by Martha Stewart..."Oh MARTHA...!" stamped it in Dark Chocolate ink by PTI, (man that stuff covers and stamps so well) and used a little Copic markers to color them in. Since these are going to third graders and I know they will be thrown away I used white cardstock from Georgia Pacific and didn't bother coloring them in much. However, that little heart in the middle of the piece of candy was just begging for some glitter. BUT, it is tiny, and there are 25 of them, and I wasn't going to glue and glitter 25 of those little suckers (actually they are Tootsie Rolls), especially because I am recovering from carpal tunnel surgery and my hands were killing me. So I said to myself, "Self, why don't you use the groovy little Jelly Roll pen right there, that would't take long at all." And..lo and behold...the angels sang, and it took me all of 2 minutes, and it looks like foil IRL! If you happen to bounce by this lonely blog and read this, leave me a comment, I would love to know what you think.
