A Day to Love and a Surprise Give Away

Apart from Christmas, Valentines Day is my favorite holiday.  I love everything about it. After all who could not adore a day dedicated to LOVE.  A day to tell all those you hold dear just how special they are to you.  A day to do that little something apart from the daily routine to surprise your loved ones.    The colors of this day are so sweet and romantic.  I so enjoy designing projects at this time of year.  Pink, red, white, hearts, buttons, lace, ribbon, vintage valentines from days gone by all come together into the most delightful  creations.  I wanted to share with you tonight two Valentine banners that I  recently completed for my shop at Sweetpeas.  The first one made with my nestabilities die cuts.  A scalloped circle for the base coupled with a plain circle of patterned paper and white cardstock for the middle.  I added letters to spell "Be Mine",a few pretty pink flowers, ribbon and some bakers twine. 

This next banner is created in the other color of the day--Red! Again using my square scalloped nestabilities as a base coupled with a plain square of patterned paper in the middle, buttons, ribbon, bakers twine and a couple of hearts punched with my new Martha Stewert heart punch 
Now I have a little surprise for all of you my blog friends that I hold dear.  In celebration of this my 100th post I am having a little give a way.  If you would like a chance to win my love banner (and a few other little surprises) just leave me a comment on this post and I will pull the winning name on Monday.  That will give you all the weekend to enter.  I am so excited to send this surprise to one of you.  Not only to say thank you for reading my blog and leaving me encouraging comments but for your friendship.  I appreciate you!!!

I love Valentine's Day too. I still remember the combination of fear and anticipation...will I get as many valentine cards in my basket as everyone else.

My grandmother and I always made tiny heart's ease bouquets to leave at the front doors of people I loved in our neighborhood.

Love your banners,
