Making Valentines


 Last week I was into making some Valentines. So, digging into the paper Valentine stash...


 and after playing with my vintage red truck and old cookie cutters....


 I made these. There are more than 1 of each...it was FUN!!!


I think this may be my favorite Valentine. Who doesn't love a bluebird with a little cutie on it! LOL!!!

My sister has 2 or 3 weeks left of chemo and radiation. Please continue prayers for her and the family! Thank you!!! XO

I was thinking that since my sister continues to workout and have her treatments, I better get my butt to the gym. I have no reason not to!!!

I was helping Erica get packages sorted and mailed to "Any Soldier" on Tuesday & Thursday. She will be posting about it soon!!! There were 8 packages going to them and money for a donation. Blogging gals are very generous!  It's heartwarming to know that they will get a little something while they are serving and without the comforts of home and family.

May your day be blessed.
warmly,
deb

I love the blue bird Valentine! What a good idea to display it in a frog.
It looks like you and I go for thr same things at estate sales. I love finding handkerchiefs and they sell well in my booth.
