Valentine’s Day Heart Swap

I joined in with Marsha at Tattered Chick’s Secret Valentine’s Day swap.  My secret Valentine was Sandy from Sandy’s Creations.  I had an opportunity to visit Sandy’s blog, as well as knowing that she likes pink and cream colors.  I pulled out my fabric stash to see what I could come up with to put together for Sandy.

I decided on this vintage looking, Shabby Chic, cream with pink roses fabric.

Hearts are like chocolate ~ you can’t have just one!  I sent Sandy a trio of hearts.  I couldn’t just leave them “as is” though!

Rebecca from Rebecca Rose Designs had me as her secret swap partner and take a look at the jaw dropping heart she sent me.

Did she get me or what? It is so beautiful! I made the mistake of opening the box while my daughter was here.  She let me know she’d be happy to display it at her house.  Yeah, that’s not happening!

Rebecca also sent along some other lovelies.  A package filled with inspiration for creativity.  And another with some old book pages and a Paris tag.

Thank you so much, Rebecca, for making such a beautiful heart for me, and thank you Marsha for hosting such a fun swap!
