My Thoughts Exactly Design Team Thursday

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week is going by fast, I know mine is. That may be because I start teaching on Tuesday and have yet to plan a thing...anyway enough about my week. Today is another My Thoughts Exactly Design Team Thursday, who doesn't love DT Thursday? Today I will be showcasing the Sweet Thoughts set in two projects, well it's really one super cute gift set ;-)
Wouldn't that put a smile on your face if you were feeling a little down? I know it would make me smile!
This cute little milk carton box is designed my Jessica Bashaw and is available at SVG Place in the Kitchen Boxes SVG Collection. Jessica also has a very similar box in her Fun Favors SVG Collection available at her SVG Attic store. While you are checking out SVG Attic be sure to check out the awesome SVG sets Jessica designed just for the My Thoughts Exactly stamps! The milk carton is obviously wrapped in the ever yummy Trendy Twine; Strawberry Cupcake Pink, Light Pink, and Chocolate Truffle Brown.
Speaking of chocolate, everything is better with chocolate, right? Well that's what the cute little milk carton says, and guess what...IT'S FILLED WITH CHOCOLATE CANDY!
This cute little 3"x3" card was the perfect little carrier for a little pick 'em up message. Just as the sentiment says, just a note to cherry you up. I cut the cherries out using the Lettering Delights Food Cut It Simple Shapes set. Instead of using the round cherries that were part of the image, I cut them off once it was all cut out and replaced them with little red buttons tied with Strawberry Cupcake Pink Trendy Twine.
I just love how this came out, I hope it inspires you in some way today! Have a fabulous weekend and don't forget to stop by My Thoughts Exactly to check out the other DT projects.

Happy crafting,
