Valentine Post No. 2-Vintage Valentine Card Party

My second post today and it's not even 8:30 AM yet! Yikes!
In addition to the Amour Valentine Swap photos following this entry,
I also signed up for Joan's Vintage Valentine Card Party.
Each participant is to show their vintage Valentines today. I don't have a huge collection,
 in fact, some have come to me recently as gifts from blogging friends,
but I scanned them so that you can use them in your work if you'd like.
If you go to Joan's can then link to all of the other participants in the party!
Have fun browsing and Happy Valentine's Day to all!

This last one is one I made to send to a friend far away in Canada.
(I'm sorry this is going to be late Michelle)
It was made using copies of vintage images and digital embellishments.

I want to say thank you to everyone who comes here to see what I've been up to.
 Your visits, and especially your comments, warm my heart and mean so much to me.
 I am so blessed that I've met so many wonderful women through blogging,
 and I enjoy our "chats" and visits. Some of you worry,
 that if you leave a comment once, it obligates you
 to leave one on every post and that's just not true.
Your time is very valuable and you have many constraints on it...
just stop in and say hi when you can.
I love hearing from you and I enjoy visiting you, too

Your Valentines are so pretty. I love the colors and style to each one. You can tell how old some of them are just by the style, so neat!

What a very nice collection. I especially love the 2nd one, the heart, ohh, it is very charming. I like the one you created too and I'm sure being a little late won't matter! Nice to meet you and Happy Valentine's Day! Judi

Thank you for sharing. I love the valentine with the girl with arrow. Thank you for letting me copy. My friend's daughter is on the Olympic Archery Team, and I will be using this image in some crafty item for her. Thank you.

Hi Joyce, it's so nice to meet you! You have a nice collection of valentines, and I especially like the one of the little girl at her windowsill. I'm going to go snoop through the rest of your blog now!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Lovely collection. I especially love the one with the muted colors. Never seen one like that. I hope you stopped by my ephemera blog to see my animated mechanical cards. I'm quite fond of the silly mail delivery goose.

Sares said...

These are all so cute! Today's valentines just don't have the same appeal do they? Happy Valentines Day, I hope you have a great week!

Sylvia said...

You have a nice collection of valentine cards and that was very nice of you to scan them for future blogger use. Thank you.

Happy Valentines Day,

Loretta said...

They're all lovely! Happy Valentine's Day! Please drop by my place to participate in a Valentine give-a-way! (I also live far away in Canada; in a city where the winter Olympics are taking place!)

You have a great collection, I love the heart shaped one with the girl and the feather going through it, so sweet! Happy Valentines!

I have some of the same Valentines from my mom's 1930's scrapbook.

Thank you for scanning them so people can use them in their artwork. The party is a great resource for artwork for our projects.

Thanks for taking part in the party. xo Joan, your hostess

Joyce, all of these vintage Valentines are making me remember grammar school. I was lucky to be the one "in charge" every year to make the mailbox! :-)

What a wonderful collection. Thanks for sharing them, plus the link to the party, so we can enjoy even more.
I scrolled down to see your adorable collages using the little one covering her mouth. SO CUTE, Joyce!!! You work magic in your studio!
Thank you for the lovely Valentine you sent. I left you an email earlier tonight. : )
