Hello again, everyone!  Well, I'm back with another challenge project.  This one is something you've all probably seen before because there are different variations of it pretty much everywhere.  However, I've never did one and I thought I'd like to for the Made By Momo, "Love Is In The Air" challenge.

The project is a standing candy bar pouch, and I've used a chocolate Hershey Bar with Almonds -- yum!!!  As I like to name my projects I'm calling this one the "Let It Stand" Valentine Candy Bar Standing Pouch:

Here's a picture of the stand attached to the back of the pouch and one showing the candy bar outside the pouch:

I think it came out pretty well!

I'ld also like to say thank you to my very dear friend Linda for passing on to me this award:

As I've received this award several times (and I'm very appreciative for each and every one of those times), I hope no one will mind if I forego the rules of passing it on again.  However, I will love adding Linda's name, as a show of my appreciation for this award, to the award on my sidebar.  And, again, Linda , thank you so very much!

Many of you know Linda, the "ladybug" lady -- lol! -- but on the off-chance you haven't met her, please visit her blog by clicking on her name where it's highlighted above.  She's such a delight!!!  And while you're there you have to check out the waving grasshopper at the top right-hand side of the page -- he's just too cute and too hysterical!!!

Well, I'll be back... so,

I'll be seeing you!
