Here is a simple, but elegant treat I put together in anticipation of the 3GirlJam Challenge....that STARTS today!
Since February will be here before I blink, I've been thinking back to all those school valentine parties that I used to have when I was a child...and then those my daughter had in elementary school. She really stressed about making sure that she brought in the ABSOLUTE best valentines and gifties that she could talk me into. I don't really remember the pressure when I was a child, but I believe my daughter either invented her own perfection and pressure OR there was this overhanging competitive nature in even the smallest gestures that I either never paid attention to...OR it didn't exist. (Now, how was THAT for a run-on sentence!)
Anyway, I also think the recent visit to 3GirlJam's store ALSO got me thinking about it all, because they have introduced the NEXT iteration of buttons in their store that I just had to use on this simple treat. ...right in time for all those treats and cards you need to make for whatever Valentine's Day party your child is attending!
And right now, they are on sale. There are two sets of buttons. You can even order in bulk for MORE savings. And if you have any questions, I'm sure that Mrs. Bling herself (Julie) will be happy to help.
