I find you a-peel-ing Valentine!

Hello and happy Friday everyone!! It's design team day for me over at the Whimsie Doodles Blog.
 I am trying to get a bunch of my valentines cards and gifts out of the way since it will be here in a few short weeks. So I decided to make a cute little tag to go on a little white gift bag, that I am going to fill with valentine treats. I used one of the tags, from the "Valentines Tag" digi stamp set.

I think these tags will make a perfect addition to any of your valentine treats and gifts.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
