Valentines for Marie

 
This month's Swap for All Season's theme was Valentines and the color was red.  Here is the card I
made for Marie.  The old photo is from my collection, I downloaded the Bingo card and added the embellishments (buttons, lace, tag, and hand dyed ribbon from Debbie).  I stamped an image on a brown envelope to complete the card.
 
 
I stamped small hearts on a hand dyed tag from Debbie.  (Debbie was my partner in an earlier swap and I received the tag and ribbon as a part of the destash).  The image is a vintage Valentine card from my collection.  The original was a teacher's card and I removed the teacher part.
 
 
These are my red destash items.  I again used vintage Valentine image from my collection on the note pad. 
 
Packaged and ready to mail.
 
 
 
 
I decided to use a brown paper bag as my packaging.  I remembered using paper bags in grade school for Valentine exchanges and thought I would continue this theme into my packaging.   Marie received the package yesterday and was pleased.  This was a fun swap.  You too can join in the fun by clicking on the Swap for All Seasons link at the top of the blog.

What fun stuff you made for the swap, Pam...Marie is a lucky woman! It's fun to see that you're using some of the destash I sent your way, too...that makes me happy. I'm looking forward to our next swap, too. Thanks for sharing your pix.

I always look forward to seeing your paper/stamping/scrapbooking creations. So creative and well crafted...just like your fabric creations. Love the use of vintage pieces and what could be more vintage than a brown paper bag...well done, Pam.

So much valentine prettiness! I love the card you made with the Bingo card! I remember making valentine boxes out of decorated shoe boxes and delivering valentines to all of my classmates in elementary school!
