best valentine frog and cupcake

Gracious BE...

Who doesn't love them some Super Cute Valentines Day Decor?

Can I get an AMEN?

After I had taken down my bazillion Christmas Decorations,

from every nook and cranny in my house...

I quickly realized my home felt like I had just moved in...

A BLANK CANVAS...of sorts!

I digress...

I decided a couple little Valentines Day cuties were in order!

After combing through my Valentines Design Files...

I came across this adorable Froggie holding a Valentine Heart...

so in my Embrilliance Software I went a "merging"...

and this Sweet Font called Smoothie Shoppe surely fit the bill!

Next up was a Calorie LESS Cupcake...

complete with Sprinkles!

Such a Simple Applique design...

but she surely packs a PUNCH!

I love to get UP close and PERSONAL with my Embroidery Machine...

by using my magnifier glass to see all its "pieces parts" in action!

Don't YOU?

 YEP...

I used a piece of Glitter Vinyl for the "frosting" applique part of the cupcake top...

I love love love the glittery shimmer it gives...

I mounted both pieces...similar to the way I do my Christmas Ornaments...

using Sticky Board, Batting, Fabric and Stitchery Tape...

I LOVE it when a plan comes together...

and let's face it...

with these super cute applique designs...

it takes so LITTLE effort!

Happy Valentines Day PEEPS!
