The Exchange of Valentines


Hello! It's me Elizabeth! No, you aren't about to celebrate the wrong holiday, I just just couldn't wait until the 14th to share the Valentines I have been making to exchange.


There are several of us in this community who are busily creating heart-shaped sentiments to send in the mail. I can hardly wait for the first to arrive.


Making Valentines with such sweet vintage images is beyond fun. Once you make one, you immediately want to make another.



 Don't let this fun project pass you by. A Valentine made especially for you is such a wonderful thing!


I love the month of February, and I love Valentines in the mail!

Your creativity just blows my mind! Every time I come to your blog, I get excited about starting a new project; problem is, I've been in start mode for too long. You inspire me, now I just have to take the nest step.

Oh my gosh, this little guy has to be the cutest one yet, Elizabeth! How can you not feel love just looking at him!

Because I am not in the same league as you all when it comes to tags, I am going to play around and make a few for myself. I'm hoping that it will make me feel more confident and I'll be looking to join in on a swap in the future. Just looking at yours and everyone else's inspires me to try this and really make them interesting!

E,
I have taken the plinge! I will be doing 12 exchanges! I have 7 already, so 5 more! Please put me on your sidebar! :) It is time I get back in the game, don't you think? :)
And I have a note for Tresa....sweetie, take that next step...just go for it! I was a nervous wreck the first time I sent anyone anything I made, and all I recieved back was praise and giggles!

The plinge???? That's anew one! I mean't plunge! LOL

I was so excited to find I actually has on my shelf those board hearts !! Can be hard to come by up here and I had them to make yours. I've already been thinking about this design.

Yes you ARE cute! And we wouldn't want it any other way. I am continually amazed at your wonderful creativity. God has blessed you! (And us for finding your blog!)

Okay Elizabeth, I'm just going to come right out and say it - I don't understand how the swap works (cheeks getting red now). If I participated, how many would I make? I'm sorry, I'm sure it's simpler than I'm making it!

I would LOVE to E, but I just can't see making that many in such a short amount of time!

My mind's been on overload lately thinking of ideas and I can't seem to FOCUS on one thing.

Oh, I DID try my very first ATCs last night. Funny, they're just tiny little cards, but it looks like a bomb went off in my art room! Totally fun and worth it though. Like your tags, I think these may become very addictive!
