Sweets for my Sweet.......

ETA: I forgot to mention that I tried the rock 'n roll technique on the "sweets for my sweet" triangle box, as you can see. Just thought I would mention that as I got thinking it looks like it doesn't stamp a good impression - but it does - I just don't do it very well -!! lol!

Good Tuesday morning and I do believe that TODAY is release day for the Sweetheart set at Waltzingmouse Stamps! I was so excited about it, I thought it was yesterday, so sorry for those of you that stormed the store, but today is the day!! - ......AND surprise surprise!! there will be another stamp set released along with this one!!

I am excited about this one because I kind of put the inkling into Claire's ear (humbly pat's self on back....) about one of the stamps! If you head over to Claire's blog you can read all about the new set!

I had some Toblerone singles given to me at over the holidays so I decided that since I didn't need to eat ALL of them, (I wanted to, believe me!) I would package them up. 

For those of you that don't know what a Toblerone bar is, it is the chocolate bar that is shaped like a long triangle and is HUGE!!  These chocolates that I received are Single Toblerone pieces and since each piece is shaped like a triangle - what better way to package them than in these triangle boxes! 

I found the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers here - and they are so simple to make and so cute when finished!

I didn't gussy them up too much, as my 3 year old grandson will be getting them and I don't think he will appreciate anything but what is inside them - and his mother may not appreciate even that LOL!

I hope all of our sneek peaks have persuaded you to hop over to Waltzingmouse Stamps and pick up this stamp set for yourself!!
