Digi Haven DT Project - Valentine's / Love

We have another new challenge for you over at the recently relaunched Digi Haven challenge blog, this time our theme is "Valentine's / Love".  Don't forget you can now play along with any digi, as long as it follows the theme, not just freebies.  The DT are all delighted with the success of our new look blog and we'd love you to come on over and play along.  Our sponsor this time is My Graphico who are offering a digi stamp set to our randomly chosen winner.  The DT were lucky enough to be given an image to play with, I chose this super cute bear to make a Valentine's gift for my hubby.
I saw these cute gift pouches being demoed by Geraldine Carruthers at her last Docrafts demo in Howden's and just has to give it a go.  She had biscuits in the middle and tea bags in the pockets, but I decided to put some Thornton's chocolates in the middle and I'll pop an I Tunes voucher in the back pocket.
The image was coloured with Promarkers and I used my new Papermania Me to You Valentine's papers (oops, more new papers, but I must be down to my last 10000 sheets and I wouldn't want to run out!) to mat onto the plain red cardstock I made the pouch from.
I can see me making loads of these for birthday presents, I think they're the perfect way to give a voucher and a sweetie and they're quick and easy to make.  A little tag with a message or sentiment  popped in one of the pockets would be a nice, personal touch too.
