"Heart Hugs" Candy Bar Wrapper Sleeve ~ Fair-well to PTW

Hi Everyone!
 I have to start by telling you some sad news. I have had to step down from a couple of my design teams. Sadly, this will be my last DT project for Paper Take Weekly. It was such am honor to have been a part of one of the most popular challenges blogs in existence! Dawny and the girls are all fabulous!
As much as I like blogging and seeing everyone's creations, I struggled to do my share of the commenting for our participants. It is nothing to see 600 or 700 entries a week. Dawny totally understood when I told her I felt I was spending ore time at the computer then I was at my craft table. :)
Maybe one day I will learn some better organization methods and be able to join them again.
Like I said....AWESOME group of girls!
The up side is....now I can enter the challenges again! Tehehehe! :)
This week's theme at PTW is "Have a Heart". All you have to do is use a heart on your project!

I made this large chocolate bar cover using my "Heart Hugs" stamp set that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps.

The paper is from K&Company's ~ Smitten stack.

The beautiful ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon's ~ Brown Glitz.
The rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
Creatalicious ~ "Ribbons and Love"
Simon Says ~ "Anything But a Card"
Stamptacular Sunday ~ "Hearts Gone Wild"
Paper Play Time ~ "Use Cupid or Hearts"
Stampin' For The Weekend ~ "ST. Valentine's Day"
Wild Orchid Crafts ~ "Love Is..."
Double Dutch ~ "Love is in the Air"
Creative Inspirations ~ "Valentines/Love"
Creative Card Crew ~ "For a Loved One"
My Time to Craft ~ "Hearts and Flowers"
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ "Let's See Some Love"
Passionately Artistic ~ "Valentine/ Last Minute Gifts"
If The Shoe Fits ~ "Get Your Pink On!"
Fun With Shapes and More ~ "Of Heart/With Heart"
All Sorts ~ "Love Love Love"
Secret Crafter Saturday ~  "Valentine"

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Hope to see your card in our challenge!
