Happy Valentine's Day!

This morning I am off to my friend Liz's (who doesn't blog)
to show off the beautiful Valentine greetings I got
in the mail and to give her my own hand made offering.
The above Valentine came in the mail from Linda.
I love the bleached crepe paper ruffle!

This craft paper puffy heart also came from Linda.
I love its simplicity and its natural colors (no red!)
Thank you, Linda for your mailed affection!

The Chinese fan  greeting is not Valentine-y at all, 
but I love it just the same because I adore Asian ephemera.
Patty sent it to me.
Thank you, Patty!
I also had the include the Chinese New Year stamp from her envelope 
as well as the slip of paper that explained the fan card.

I stole Linda's ruffled crepe paper idea and made this Valentine for Liz.
The puppies image is from a deck of playing cards I quickly sold out of in my etsy shop.
Although what I have left is only 100dpi (low resolution),
it still prints up okay.
Good enough for a greeting card.
You can get the image from here.
Just scroll down in the post.
I hope you get some cards in the mail,
some flowers from your honey,
or a surprise from a secret friend.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you for the adorable Valentine...just can't resist asking, though...were you drinking something with a straw when you were crafting away?! I got a straw wrapper in my envelope. LOL!!!

Such a sweet Valentiney Post Nathalie!

It just so happened that I had two different Japanese fans and immediately thought of you and Margaret...I think I picked them up long ago at The Smithsonian Gift Shoppe.

Feels funny to be dipping my toes back in is such a part of my day and I went without for many days while we were in PR
