Sweet Surprises!

I'm afraid I'm quite behind on my blog postings...but late as this may be, I really wanted to share these sweet surprises I received from my very talented crafty friends for Valentines Day and Girls Day this year. First up...Lorna's super cute Valentines Day packets filled with chocolates.
She used Sister Stamps Miyako stamp, colored with Copics and holding up a washi paper pieced heart to embellish her packet closed with a bow. So adorable!
This beautiful card in a box creation came in the mail from my dear friend, Patti of Creations By Patti blog. Wow, I love how this card in a box looks like it's just bursting open with so many hearts! Even the flaps on the box are heart shaped! Patti chose perfectly coordinating papers and a cutting file from SVG Cuts to make this a very special Valentine.
Then on Girls Day (March 3rd), Lorna blew me away with these incredible kokeshi doll treats! 
Lorna used the Kokeshi Doll Heads stamps to make these doll displays...and  if you look carefully, you can see the packets of wasabi iso peanuts draped with pretty washi paper she used to create their bodies. Yes, this girl is just out of this world creative!
And tucked underneath each of the display stands were these yummy mochi candies...
And finallly, this "OMG SO KAWAII!!!" kimono Hello Kitty packet of treats comes from my dear friend Kris. She embossed her packet with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and paper pieced this adorable Hello Kitty. Love, love all the tiny little details from the pretty bow and flowers in her hair to the little pair of geta on feet.
I'm so blessed to have such wonderfully talented and crafty friends who always spoil me with their amazing creations! Okay, please bear with me as I still have a few more Chinese New Year projects to share on my next post and hopefully I'll be caught up and ready for...Easter!

Wow, I don't know where to begin, what yummy eye candy. I used to live in Japan for 5 years so my eyes are gobbling this all up! I just went to the Sanrio shop near my house to try and find something special but nothing as cute as that stinkin adorable hello kitty treat bag! I'm loving all your "2 sister" stamp creations. So glad you posted these valentine yummies!
