I hope you are enjoying the Sketch~n~Scrap blog hop and I hope you got the chance to visit Hillary's blog yesterday and see her awesome Mother and Father's day projects. Today I have some sweet treats for you as I celebrate Sweetest Day, you know everyday really is a holiday.
Sweetest Day is always observed on the third Saturday in October, which fell on Oct. 19 in 2013.
Sweetest Day is an original American holiday not based on any group's religious tradition. It's simply a reminder that a thoughtful word, deed or small gift enriches the life of the recipient as well as the person giving it. Legend has it that Sweetest Day was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio, candy company employee who wanted to bring happiness to the lives of those who often were forgotten. Kingston and others distributed candy and small gifts to orphans, people confined to their homes and others to show them that someone cared.
And after attending five weddings this year I guess that I am still feeling the love in the air so I made this card perfect for an anniversary or wedding -
And to top off all of this sweetness I have this SWEET paper pack from one of my favorite online retailers- A Cherry on Top- to giveaway featuring Pink Paislee's Hey Kid collection! This collection is so much fun to play with, so be sure to enter.
