Handmade Valentine Swap Cards


Here they are! The Valentine cards from my one on one Valentine Card swap and each card is just beautiful and handmade, which is even better! I am just tickled pink with each of these gorgeous creations. The pictures just don't do them justice. I have a new camera and I'm still trying to get it figured out. So let's see the pretty Valentine's......(make sure to click on the pictures so you can see them up close)....





This first one is created by M Babs of Tales From an OC Cottage and along with it came these beautiful pink roses, fun little tags and a most sparkly and prettiest star fish I've ever seen! Her sparkly starfish really are a treat!..........



And the inside of the card is just beautiful too!...........

Thank You M!




Two beautiful cards--a Valentine and birthday card both created by Kathy Link of Cottage Garden Quilter. The Valentine card paper is hand painted and oh so pretty!.....

Thank You Kathy!




Sweet, simple and classic by Samantha Pearson of Three Men and a Lady. Very pretty and I can hang it, which I think is cool.

Thank You Samantha!




Layers of loveliness in this beauty was created by Linda Freeman of Lambsworld and arrived with all kinds of fun little tuck ins. There were some I Love You cards that I used to tuck into the husbands shirt pockets while he was away on a business trip this week. ;)

Thank You Linda!




A beautiful card, music panel and wonderful wooly Valentine pocket envelope created by Margaret Bouwmeester of The French Bear. Lots of fun details and I love the little sewing machine charm.


...and the inside of Margaret's beautiful card......

Thank You Margaret!




And last but not least is this beautiful card from my creative sister Rhonda of Really Just Rhonda. The little envelope opens up with 4 little king of heart cards inside and then inside the card.......


...is even more fun! And the mailing envelope was even way cute!

Thank You Rhonda!


I just LOVE all of these gorgeous and creative cards! Thank you so much to each of you! This has been so fun and you've really made my birthday and Valentine's even more special! Thank you!

And I just realized that I sent out my cards and forgot to take any pictures! I'm very good at doing things like that!
