A Very Vintage Valentine

I am still catching up with sharing recent cards here on my blog...and am excited to share these vintage Valentine's with you.
These were created with free on-line printables that I found while browsing different web sites

These cards were a cinch to make....and were a big hit with my 2 Valentine daughter, Chelsea.....and fiance'....Gary...

I also used these adorable images (and some others) with the ladies at my monthly Workshop...and they were a big hit!

I also posted the first card (below) to my FB page..and offered to make one for any local friends who might want one... so that they could give it to their own Valentine sweetheart..
as it turned out..quite a few people liked the card enough to ask for one...and so I had a steady stream of friends coming to my pick up their card

As much as I am an addicted and dedicated stamper..I can definitely see myself enjoying creating with Vintage images like these  in the future...

If you like Vintage sure to take a jaunt around the web .....where I know you'll find more free printables that you can create your own cards with.

(I still have, I think, one...or maybe 2...valentine card pics on my camera....Gary and Chelsea's cards...and will share them when I upload them to my computer..)

This is the card that I made and offered to friends.. (I think that lots of husbands and sweethearts in my town  received this card this

I created this little cutie cop card for a friend  who gave it to her police officer fiance...(loved the corny sentiment..)

Catching up...

It's still cold out here on Long Island..but we have sunshine..and chirping I am hopeful that soon I'll see those beautiful crocuses poking their lavender heads thru the ground by our driveway....
Once I see those little purple flowers blooming...I'll know that I can do my Welcome Spring happy dance!

I won't profess to be doing any Spring cleaning yet...but I am feeling like I at least need to give more attention to my much neglected blog...and so I'm sharing a few photos of the cards that I whipped up for last month's card Making workshop...

The workshop ladies loved both cards..specially the square one..that fits into a std CD envelope (the kind with the clear round window on the front)

This weekend I'll be creating 2 additional cards..and prepping the kits for next weekend's Card Making Workshop...and will be sure to share photos here when they're done)..but first..I'll be back wiht a few Valentine card cuties that I think you'll like a lot :)

I hope that these cards inspire you..and lead you to your create some cards of your own!

Have a great weekend!

Wish the Dazzling Diamonds on the blooms in the photo showed'll just have to take my word about how pretty it looks... :)

PS....My cupcake top was sitting a bit high on top of the cupcake...(don;t you think??) i lowered it right after this photo was taken..and it looked much better...
