Valentines!

Valentines Day!  I've got a lot of cute ideas in my shop for giving to your Sweeties---my favorite are these little mini banner cards.  I started with a sweet little (they are 3" sq.) handmade envelope  with an intriquing little ring on a string sticking out of it......

Open the envelope and slowly pull the ring on the string.......

 and a sweet message appears!  A little keepsake for your sweety that they can hang anywhere as a little reminder of how you feel about them!! 
 I've done these up in a few different designs....something for everyone! 
 AND...of course, there are some pretty new bird tags in Valentine theme to dress up your packages.  Wrap a colorful bit of paper around a box of chocolate...tie on a big pretty ribbon and add a cheerful tag--happy gift!!
 Last, but not least for today...I had to show you Dotty...she turned out so sweet and so warm, don't you think?? 


Health update:   I am right now on the tail end of recovering from the last bout of chemo, it's been a pretty rough series, but the doc is giving me a break after this!!  Yeah!  I am looking forward to it and getting my strength back (and maybe some hair, lol...I'm as bald as an eagle and lost all my eyelashes and eyebrows too, so I"m looking pretty scary! )  Keep on praying for me, my friends....God is my Strength  and you are my warriors!  ♥♥♥

I love the Valentines! I was showing them off at work yesterday! And you better believe I'm still praying for you! Warrior is right! Faith and prayers can move mountains and I'm more than happy to stand in the gap when you don't have the strength. HUGS and MEGA LOVE!
