Sending Hugs

Today I'm sending hugs to everyone because, quite frankly, we can all use a good hug.  Right?  So this one goes out to any and all who are needing a BIG HUG.  Consider yourself hugged as I share this fun little project I created this afternoon.  I had a friend who had asked me for a recipe the other day.  She also needs a hug....if you know what I mean.  A little pick-me-up.  So, rather than just hand her the recipe, email or text it to her; I thought I'd make something cute to give to her at church tonight.  I wouldn't mind receiving a cute little recipe like this.
I used a long skinny glassine bag and I attached some Kaiser Crafts patterned papers to create a background.  I painted a wooden spoon (from Hobby Lobby) with pink acrylic paint and tied some Black Licorice Baker's Twine around it.  The stamped sentiments and images are from Paper Sweeties.  I placed the images on small torn scraps of canvas from my fabrics stash.  I machine stitched the edges of the canvas scraps.
The small heart on the spoon next to the word hugs is a Doodlebug ephemera that I got from Paper Sweeties in my 2nd Quarter Sweet Kit.  It's filled with oodles of CUTENESS including these darling stamps and dies.  I'm excited to play along in a few fun challenges that I'll list below.
Thanks again for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed this HUG I'm sending out to y'all.  I know there are some days when I really need a big hug.  Please know that any time you're feeling down, someone out there is thinking of you and sending hugs your way.  We all need each other.  Have a blessed day!


Here's where I'm playing along:
Simon Says Stamp - Sending HUGS - That's exactly what I did with this project (as explained above).
