Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day
to my lovely friends in Blogland!!
I wish I could give each of you a handmade greeting
 and lots of chocolate. 
What I can do, is share some Valentine cards I made and the images
I used. I have found some wonderful ones on
Pinterest (of course)
and tried to click through to give you the links, and the
posters credit for the image, but it didn't work out that way.
If you know where credit should be directed, please let me know.

This year, I chose an image that I love, and used it for several  bunches of cards I made.
This sweet little girl in red, holding a bouquet of poppies...


An older image of another sweet girl... 









Isn't she versatile?
I think this one is my favorite. It's a great way to use up small scraps.

Every year, I make the Valentine cards I give to David.
He always appreciates the time that goes into them, and,
they never leave the house!
 I use them every year as part of our Valentine decorations.
We both love images of little children used on cards...




Five rows of punched borders in varying shades of cream and white.
the You & Me tag is stamped
Inside....

There also has to be a humorous card.
I love the card images from the 50's, you know,
the hubby and the "Mrs".



I may be back later with something else I'm working on today...
but in the meantime,
I hope you have a loving day with those who are special to you!


ADDED: These cookies are the best peanut butter cookies I've found!



The recipe is at Arctic Garden Studio, here...I added the Dove chocolate hearts.

XOXO
Joyce
