The Love Train is at my station......

Love, love me do.
You know I love you,
I'll always be true,
So please, love me do.

It's all about the hugging and kissing and daydreaming... sigh.
We are talking about that four letter word today.
If you are getting here from Vanessa's blog, Paper Creations, then you are right on track. If not, you need to start at the first hop stop: The Freshly Brewed Challenges Blog.

Everyone at Fresh Brewed Designs has been creating and keeping secrets from each other.
You got it, even we don't know what the others got to create with! I will be hopping right along with you, excited to see what is new and next on the list for me to get to create with.

The digi that I got to create with is called Lasso my Heart and you can find it at the Fresh Brewed Designs Shop
under Holiday Digital stamps: Valentines / In Love.

Isn't he just gorgeous!  He can lasso me anytime!
I used my Spellbinders to the little word hearts and the top and bottom to my little gift box.
I made a small box and attached it to the bottom layer.  I attached a lid to the upper heart.
Perfect little box for an extra special candy (maybe a double chocolat truffle?) or a little
piece of cotton with a special piece of jewelery on it? 
This box is cased off one made by Tammie E. at 'One Happy Stamper'.  While I don't have
her instructions, I was able to look at her pics and figure this out. (LOL)
Colored with copics, embossed with a CB folder and ribbon is from my stash.
Sentiments on the hearts are mostly hand written.
Come back by on Friday and you will get to see where this cowboy is going when he
gets done with his 'Love Train' ride!

Now hop back aboard the love train *toot toot* and ride on to your next hop stop at Kenzi's blog, Krafty Hugs .

While you are there, leave her some blog lovin' for your chance to win a SPECIAL FRESHLY BREWED PRIZE! You have to leave a comment on all of the hop stops in order to win.

Thank you for hopping with us at Fresh Brewed Designs
Just in case you get hit with Cupid's Arrow along the way and get a little lost, here is the hop order:

The project may be entered in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations:  Valentines
Inky Impressions:  Anything but a square
Just Tracy's Crafts:  Valentines

Adorable treat box and I love the smaller ones on the side. They look just like those little heart candies you get at valentines. Thank you so much for joining us for our “Shape It Up” Challenge over at Inky Impressions Challenges. I hope you have a wonderful week and good luck.

yep he can lazzo me anytime also!
I love the big heart and the embossing on it. And a cool idea with the small box and candy. I might be pinching that idea for my valentine as one candy is enough after all the Xmas cake!
Hand writing the sentiment is really clever and they look like thewy have been printed-fab
