Bucket o' Love

I give you Bucket o' Love. I made only 2 of these: one for my hubby and one for my mom. I was down for 2 days earlier in the week, just simply tired, I think because of my chemo treatments. Now I'm a couple days behind in Valentine cards and gifts, so I am playing catch up.

I used these items to create this Bucket o' Love:
  • metal pail from Target $1.00 bin
  • lace
  • ribbon
  • Martha Stewart edge punch - lace heart
  • Sweethearts Cricut cartridge - Love
  • Stickles - Love (you probably can't see it in the photo)
  • misc. chocolate and candy lollipops
I am entering my Bucket o' Love in the following challenges and linky party:
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my Bucket o' Love.
