Sweet Valentines Swap!
Special Delivery...Valentines Swap!
I just love holiday swaps...it's so much fun to create something special for a new blogging friend. Let's face it...if I didn't do swaps I would probably flunk out of Holiday Crafting University. Swaps stimulate our creativity...without them I would be standing around in my craft room with a stupid expression on my face, unable to focus. I need an assignment...and a deadline! I joined a Valentine swap hosted by Viv of Viv Out on a Whim. She matched up swap partners and I was so fortunate to get Cindy of Prairie's Edge Farm. She makes the most beautiful Shabby/Elegant things. The soft colors are like the sweetest of treats...the icing on a wedding cake or a rose patterned plate of petit fours.
I don't think I've ever seen a more beautifully decorated tin.
These are the colors my romantic side craves.
Tiny embellished box was filled with lovely trimmings.
Anyone who knows me, knows I adore small boxes.
A tag this beautiful deserves heirloom status.
A bookmark worthy of resting between the pages of a Jane Austen novel.
A few of the lovely embellishments she included.
The tin was filled with fun items for crafting.
More vintage Valentines.
Two wonderful cards.
I am still learning the art of card making.
1939 Snow White and the Seven Dwarves Valentines.
The set of cards I used for my Valentine Party Tin.
I just printed the whole set at once and cut them out.
Enlarge or decrease as needed for your project.
I posted many of things that I sent Cindy a couple of weeks ago. She received the whole Snow White treatment. So I will let her post about her package if she so desires. Thank you so much, Cindy for the beautiful treasures you made for me. And thank you, Viv, for hosting this fun swap!
Is your Sweetheart a "long little doggy?"
I found a few Doxie Valentines in my file...enjoy!
