Making Valentines

I loved making Valentines as a child and I still love it today. I didn't swap as many Valentines as usual this own little art group hasn't been very active lately...but I joined in trading with Nancy of My Crafty Little Page and Sandy of 521 Lake Street who were part of the Dolly Dingle Valentine Exchange hosted by sweet Elizabeth of Bluebird Papercrafts. Be sure to drop by to see all of the beautiful valentines everyone made...Elizabeth will have links to all the participants.

This one is from Nancy. She used a vintage Bingo card as a base and add layers of images and trims and foil and flowers...I love it! Thank you Nancy for trading Valentines with me.

And just look what Sandy sent me...she recreated a vintage lollipop valentine...isn't that cute?! And she also made a Valentine tag and included a bag of Sweethearts. I almost hate to admit it but I've always loved these! Here's the other side of Sandy's tag...isn't that Scottie cutout adorable? Thanks so much Sandy!

And here are the valentines I made...for Nancy

And for Sandy

These are all so gorgeous - really bringing back memories of my childhood with their bright colours and images.

Happy Valentines Day!
