Happy Tuesday everyone!!! 
Phew we've made it to Tuesday. For some of us, we're having a short week this week, and then next week its back to a full one. I already miss my husband being around the house, the holidays has a way of spoiling us! Today was Christopher's first day back to school after his car accident. It's definitely been a long few months, but a very THANKFUL one more importantly. We've got a few more months of rehab ahead, but he's a strong kid, so I know he'll pull through.  Also..I'm happy to announce that I've been chosen to rejoin the design team at The Cutting Cafe!! I'm so excited to be with Regina and all the ladies once again. I love all of Regina's files and stamps, so it's never hard coming up what to do with them, my hardest choice is which file to use, as you'll see below lol
With that being said, its Inspiration Time at The Cutting Cafe!! This week we were asked to work with the Loopy Loop Bow Flower! I love this file because it's so versatile, and it comes with the bow it two different forms...with the holes and a plain one. This file comes in PDF, WPC and SVG format, for those of us with electric cutters and without. For my bow, I used the PDF file, to show how easy and cute it comes out even if you use your old faithful scissors. This bow will work with whatever project you have going, it's all in the papers you use. So get those Valentine ideas flowing, and fit this lovely Loopy Loop Bow Flower into your sketch!!
For my project this week, I made a little set for my aunt's granddaughter, Olivia. They like to send mail to each other, so I thought they could use this during their craft time while she's at my aunt's house. Olivia has been under the weather recently so I hope this brings a smile to her face :) 
and more pictures of inside the box using even more files from The Cutting Cafe!!!

 Regina personalized some handmade labels for Olivia to use from the Handmade Just For You Labels
