My Vintage Valentine blog hop...

Thanks for hopping with us today!


I've been very excited about this hop.

I finally made something other than a card!!


You should have hopped here from KinderStampO.

That is the first stop for your hop today.

Make sure you go back and check it out!!

Also if you get lost along the way you can go back there to get back on track.

Now on to my project:

Last year after Valentines Day I bought several ugly wooden plaques from our local store. They were on sale for 10 cents each!! What a deal. I grabbed each one they had! Now I just had to make them pretty and covering them with paper is the perfect way!

Image is a digi from The Greeting Farm.

I colored it with Bic & Copic markers. then I cut it out with Nesties.

Then I inked around the edges and I added some pearls to the corners.

Oh there is a pearl on the bow in her hair too.

The tag is just a shipping tag that I stamped on and added the "love" to.

Flowers are from Prima.

The lace is from Paper Patch Crafts.

The beads and key charms I have just had forever.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I hope that you enjoy the rest of the hop!!

There is a lot of awesome talent here today!!!

Your next stop is Martha's blog.
