Late Valentine Hearts

I mentioned in a post or two ago that I was making hearts for a Valentine's swap, and I would show you a picture of them (if I had one- oops). I was in such a rush to get them down that I completely forget to take a picture of the finished product!

When I received my box in the mail, I opened it, but then quickly put it away. Have you ever done that? It's kind of like getting a new, fab magazine- you look through it a bit and save the rest for another time.

I don't have much alone time these days, and saving these treats was like a little gift to myself. I waited about a week, then pulled them out one night, while the kids were asleep and the house was quiet. Each one was unique! The best part about a swap with a theme is seeing how each artist interprets it.

I didn't actually get a chance to hang all of them up, which was a shame. I wanted to string them like a banner, with tiny clothespins, but that stuff is all packed away. So, I'll put them away, to be hung in our new home.

From swap hostess Tammy:

A gorgeous card, and a sweet ruffled heart.
From Jeanne over at Dream, Create, Inspire:
Lots of layers and red!
From Carla:
 This really cool envelope is made from a dress pattern, with the inside reinforced with fusible web, so it is really thick and durable.
 From Vivian over at Viv's Whimsy:
This little girl on a swing is so sweet!

From Sandy over at Sandy's Creations:
I lvo the 3D pop of the heart, and who can resist red glitter!
From Tammy's mom, Ruth, who does the most amazing crocheting and tatting:
My favorite color!
From Grace over at Pink In the City, a bag full of goodies:
I love the 'stache, and this amazing heart with wings and a Charlotte head!!
From Natalea ofver at Kandeland:
I love the three girls- reminds me of me and my sisters.

Thank you Tammy, for hosting this swap!

Hi Lee,

Glad you enjoyed all the hearts. The banner idea sounds great for next Valentine's Day. You can string them across your new kitchen window next year!!
