Vintage Valentine

Hi Everyone! How are you doing this fine Friday? I am ready for the weekend. I don't have anything planned so I am hoping to finish cleaning up my scrapbook room and start working on some projects. One of my most favorite card magazines is Paper Crafts. I just love all the fun ideas that they have in there! The January/February issue arrived not too long ago and I was so excited to see all the fun Valentine stuff. Vintage is really in this year and they just caught my eye so I decided that I would try to set out and find some fun vintage valentines or vintage photos online. I started reading the supplies list of all the valentine cards I liked and I found this neat web site called Lunagirl Images, you can check them out here. They have the neatest web site, you can purchase a CD Rom for 14.99 and get 1,000 or more images, or if you are impatient (like me *wink*) then you you can download some for $3.95 each sheet. The image above is on a sheet of 12 or so. What do you think? I really like the way it turned out! I am going to play around some more this weekend so I may have more to post.

I have some sad stamp news too...this may be old news to some of you but Hana Stamps has gone out of business. There were several of there stamps that I really liked and I missed the boat on that one. One of my stampin' buddies mentioned that I may be able to find them somewhere else online so I may check that out too.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Hugs!

This is a pretty card. I love vintage, but never do any of it. You try so many neat things.

You do vintage great...I'm horrid at vintage! LOL

Thank you for your kind words; I made that card all in one night - a record for me. It felt so good just to play!!

The heart punch is by Martha Stewart; last year when it was really popular, people were selling it on Ebay for $25+!!! I never have been able to find it in a local store although it may be easier this year since it isn't the most current 'rage'.

I ordered mine online through when she was offering a discount. :D

Little guy is doing good - but that's very normal. The 'episodes' typically occur every 10-14 days so it's only been about 5 days since the last episode. The gastro doctor can't see us until the beginning of March; so we'll see how he does between now and then.

Thank you for your thoughts & prayers; they mean so much to us!
