Valentine Heart Box Swap & Cards Made


 Yesterday was crafting day with Jeanne. We talked A LOT!!! before we got started on our crafts. I made the cards above using the image from a vintage card. Isn't she too cute! Thanks, Jeanne for "playing" with me!


I joined Erica's Valentine Heart Box swap and my partner was Erica from Pyrex thrift Sisters. She made the darling heart box above using blue and pink, my favorite colors! Very sweet cards she put on the front along with old buttons, flowers and such!
She had LOTS of great goodies for me. Dresser scarf, vintage cookbook, CHOCOLATE from a local shop where she lives, bits and bobs....
THANK YOU, Erica, for being such a great partner!

Thank you blogging friends for all your loving comments about the DRESS! The wedding isn't until Sept 2014....so I was very surprised that she found the DRESS on our first outing!

Hoping that you all have a AWESOME day!
Warmly,
deb

Oh Deb, I LOVE your Valentine heart box. So sweet. I am wondering if there will ever come a day I have time to get into a swap. Mom most likely will be coming home the 8th so it won't be any time soon that I have any extra time. Thanks for visiting and leaving the helpful comment. I have actually been trying to wean myself from that evil Diet Coke, but oh how I will miss it. I'm down to 2 a day. My sister just sent me an article on facebook about aspartame and diet coke and it was scary. Perfect timing, you two must be in cahoots.
Have a wonderful week!
Hugs,
Julie

I keep telling one of my friends that since there are no garage sales right now, we should get together every Friday and have a craft day! Sounds like you two had fun, and the cards and box are SO cute!

Hi Deb, What a wonderful swap. Love the Valentine box. You received some special gifts.
Loved the post below too. How exciting. Your daughter is beautiful and is going to be a gorgeous bride.

I have enjoyed catching up with you. I have been very sick with the type A flu and pleurisy. Feeling a bit better today but it's been 2 weeks and I am still not 100 percent yet.

Thank you for your kind comment on my RH blog feature. You are so sweet. Wishing you a wonderful evening.
hugs, Celestina Marie

Hi Deb - first of all, I love your valentines! All of these swaps have been just wonderful. I don't know how to have people "follow" me. I am wondering if I should move over to Blogger.
