Hearts and Cards

Hard to believe it Valentine's week already, I'm just going to show cards I made this year and some of my Hearts I have collected through the years . This one I have named the Veiled Lady. I usually don't know where i'm headed when I start a card I just add things as I go along. I loved this old piece lace.

 With her veil lifted to show her face. I always add rhinestones to my cards
Its hanging from my chandelier over one of my work tables with lots other fun stuff

 Now this is some of my hinged Hearts I have collected. The clear one my 7 year old Grandson gave me for Christmas this past year

This is an old silk Sacred Heart I got at an auction years ago in a box of goodies

Love this Scared Heart of Mary box that opens

Here is a box I fell in love with the color since I have an old pitcher same colors

Oh I forgot this card I made last weekend. I used a red tag card and white paper lace doilie of course a few rhinestones and ribbon, the girls were some die cuts I have had for years.

Love this old pitcher the lid is broken however I love the colors, I sold this once to a dealer and when she closed her shop I bought it back from her double what she gave me for it LOL I really wanted it back.

Hope you all get pretty cards and box of Chocolates, I still am working on a couple cards creations. I'll be checking out your Valentine post also.

I also wanted to say to you who still love old antiques from the 1800's like me need to check out the blog Bama Planter, he post southern antiques from that period and I love them
