Vintage Valentines


Good Friday morning everyone...it's almost the weekend...yeaaaaaa!!! We are going to our granddaughter Caitlyn's first soccer game Saturday morning and then she will come home with us for the night. She is 4
going on 13 and no bigger than a minute!! I'm sure we will spend a few hours in the craft room so she can make some Valentines.  Speaking of Valentines, I thought I would show you the vintage type Valentines I made for the ladies at my church craft group.  
I used Nestabilities hearts, heart shaped doilies, sentiments from a variety of sets, and diecuts from K&Co. that I bought last year.

I used a Layers of Color art stencil  and sponged Rose Red onto the Pretty in Pink heart that was cutout  with a heart shaped Nestabilities.

A to and from stamp was used on the back to address the Valentines.


Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!!
