Daydream Designs January Blog Hop with a FREE DIGI

Good morning friends!  We have a fun blog hop going on at Daydream Designs.  If you arrived here from MariLynn's blog you are on the right track.  If you stopped here first and want to join in the fun head to Diane's blog where this party got started!  The theme for this hop is "hearts" and Diane is graciously offering a $20 gift certificate to her store for one winner that comments on every blog in the hop.  There are some super cute things over there so hop along with us and maybe the winner will be you!  (If you are looking for the fun FREE DIGI scroll to the bottom of this post where you will find it.)

I had fun working on my project for you.  I hope you like how it turned out.
I chose to use one of the Bingo cards from Sweet On You Bingo Cards.  I am really liking the variety of these little guys that Diane has, you can use them on so many projects.  I printed mine on cream card stock and inked the edges with black.  I used a red pigma pen and put a heart around the number 14.  The lovely papers are from Hobby Lobby.  The flowers, pearls, beads and feathers are all from my stash.  I inked the edges of the DP with black and sewed around the perimeter twice with black thread.
 Here's the inside.  The writing panel in on the left this time because the right side has a small box to put some candy in.  I used a MS border punch in several places including the small piece of pink on the spine.
This is the box.  I used the MS punch again.  I like how it looks on here.  I didn't embellish the top of the box so you could see the cute paper.
The box is only 1" tall.  Just right for a small treat.
 Here's the other great DP.
Here you can see I punched another piece for the outer spine.

Your next stop on the hop is Miesje.  If you get lost along the way start back at Diane's blog, she has the whole list there.
