Such glorious candy for the eyes. I'm so glad you took close-ups of all. One thing kept running through my mind...Elizabeth's influence and talent is showing through on so many of these. These were all gorgeous!!!
And I did happen to see my humble little heart hanging amongst the others. It made smile ear to ear. : )

Hi E,

Elizabeth, I am so wowed by the Valentines you received...what an amazingly talented group of paper artists!! Thank you for sharing their creations.

Nancy (My Crafty Little Page) allowed me to be a part of her swap. It was my very first card creation....and I have to say....I think I'm hooked. I so enjoyed exploring this new way of creating!

I also have to say, that while I am pretty new to your blog, I have SO loved reading your posts and learning about your sewing and paper crafting techniques. You are so gifted....including your wonderful writing skills!

Hope you're having great Valentine's Day!!

Dear, Dear Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for the beautiful valentine! I love it! I'm sorry I forgot my blog name on mine. I just didn't think of it. I'm so glad you shared all the beautiful ones you received here. I keep looking at them and thinking - now wait - I didn't see that earlier.....or that........or this detail. I had so much fun making mine and I will treasure yours always!

Happy, Happy Valentine's Day!


Angela said...

They are all so amazing and cute! You know I never knew who Dolly Dingle was - now I finally get why it was named that. They remind me of the Campbells Soup kids...
Happy Valentine's Day sweet Elizabeth. Thank you SO much for the lovely one you sent to me. :)

Dear Elizabeth
I accidently stumbled across your blog and have just spent the last several hours staring, slack jawed, at your posts. I am a scrapbooker, or at least used to be one, but have become bored with scrapbooking. Recently I realized what I love about scrapbooking is buying the paper, playing with the paper, cutting the paper, matching the paper. Thanks to what I just discovered on your amazing, incredible, beautiful blog, there is finally a way for me to get to play with paper and make gorgeous things. Thank you, thank you so very much for being such an inspiration and for putting your creations out there to share. One of my favorite projects was the Christmas "window box". (Sorry. I'm sure that's NOT what it's called, but I lack a better name) It's truly unbelievable. I certainly have the stash of paper to start creating it but I have to ask, where do you get the "stuff"? The kitschy, cute, little bits of goodness that give the piece all of it's personality? I have no "stuff"! Do I need to start going to flea markets, garage sales and thrift stores? How long did it take you to accumulate such a fantastic trove of glorious goodies?

Sarita Boyette said...

Elizabeth, I enjoyed your Valentine's so much! Your enthusiasm about crafting warms my heart. I wish I felt like crafting as you do. God bless you!
