U Stole My Heart

TGIF!! I cannot wait for this week to be over. Somehow I have gotten my days and nights all turned around and I am hoping I can get my schedule back on track over the weekend!

Today, The Character Cafe is having a special Valentines release and as soon as I saw this adorable raccoon, I just had to use him! I am working on making these target mailboxes for all the kids in DD's class for their Valentine's Party. I normally wouldn't take on such a large project for so many kids but since this is her last year of elementary school and my last year as a room mom I wanted to do something really special.

I covered the mailbox with Love Bandit DP from Bo Bunny and then I colored Robbie Raccoon with PrismaColor markers and cut him out for the front of the mailbox. I used a white gel pen for the faux stitching around the edge. The sentiment on the flag is from the {ippity} Straight from the Heart set.

You will definitely want to check out the Feature Friday challenge at the Cafe Blog today. It is a 3D challenge and Lauren Meader is this weeks Guest Designer. The DT has come up with some amazing creations using her Cutesy Cover template.

Thanks for stopping by,
