There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Vintage Valentine

The past couple of weeks I have made some vintage Valentine art and gift tags for some blogging friends and family.
  I thought I would share with you some of the finished gifts.

This is a collage a made for a new blogging friend.  I used a original vintage Valentine for this collage, and added a vintage button embellished with vintage lace.

Here are some of the handmade gift tags.  I used copies of vintage Valentine cards and vintage photo images for these gift tags.  I embellished the tags with new papers, vitnage lace, vintage buttons, rhinestones, paper flowers, and ribbons.

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels. ~Author Unknown

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine. ~Thomas Jefferson

Wishing you a wonderful week!
