Valentines! Freebies!

Hello Friends!
Valentine's Day, yay!
I just love everything about Valentine's Day!
So of course I signed up for a number of swaps!



This card and tag I made for my Swap for All Seasons partner, Debbie:
I sewed the little banner on, and the "LOVE" is washi tape.
 Debbie and I share a love of kitties, so of course I had to make her a kitty tag:

I went very red on this altered candy box for my partner Kris
in a MAMA swap:
 Of course it's stuffed with goodies!

I made this tag for another swap in my MAMA group,
a fabric and lace tag:


I don't know why, but it looks more tea-dyed than it actually is...
the colors are much subtler in real life,
and the girl is bluer...
and I can't retake the pic because I already sent it to Terri  :)
 I'm enjoying incorporating sewing into my paper projects,
I will be doing a lot more of that this year!

These are my valentines for my partners
 in a MAMA Valentine Swap which I hosted:

Instead of an envelope I slipped them into a glassine bag
and sewed it shut with some little bits of fabric, lace and tape trims:
 Soooo, that's what I've been up to,
aside from being on call for my very PG daughter.  :)
I went to a Newborn Baby Care class with her and my son-in-law.
I have to say, things have...not...changed a whole lot.
I did learn a few things, though.

Here's some cuties for your last minute valentine crafting:

Hi Lorraine, this is a lovely post. Your valentines are so old fashioned and romantic. I copied your little bluebird valentine clip art . . . I have an idea swimming around in my head. If I do it I will be sure and link it back to you blog.
Happy Valentines.
