A Little More Valentine-ness!

I just had to save this swap for today ~ Happy Valentine's Day!  Laurie at Indulge Your Shelf hosted a most wonderful swap where we created 4 Valentine ornies and a handcrafted Valentine card.  She swapped them out for us and here's what I received from my FABULOUS partners....

First, the package arrives decked out in vintage Valentine wrapping paper ~ how sweet is that!
Seriously, I didn't want to unwrap it!  Laurie is the Queen of Presentation!

But, I did ~ and here's the treasure trove that was waiting for me....

the sweetest Valentine card from Laurie
The first ornament comes from the uber-talented Lorraine at Paper Vernissage...the heart behind the heart is the darling package Lorraine created for the ornie


Second treasure is a gorgeous creation from Michaele at Twigs and Tulle

not only a stunning ornie, but a stunning card as well!
Third creation comes from the lovely and talented Terri at Vintage Connections (by the way...if you would like to see better pix than the ones I took, head over to Terri's...her's are fab!)

And the 4th lovely comes from Lisa at A Peaceful Place to Be
of course I'm over the moon when it comes to birdies!
A BIG thanks to all my partners, I couldn't be happier with your beauties, and to have made new blog friends! xo

I'll bet you'd like to see what I sent to all my partners, wouldn't you?  You know how much I love "trinkets" so I created bottle cap ornies that could also be worn as a pendant.

all packaged up with the card I created...


reveal!
I also created a special "thank you" gift for Laurie, our wonderful hostess...
packaged up..

reveal!
Wishing all of you the most wonderful Valentine's Day!  My Valentine is on a two day biz trip to FL, so we'll celebrate when he returns [sigh], but it's allllll good!
xoxo

Happy Valentine's Day!
