Back to the blog... I've been out of the loop. My uncle passed away last week and I have been with family, helping to celebrate my uncle's life. Art and internet have taken a backseat as can be expected. My aunt will sorely miss her sweetheart of 50+ years and I'll be thinking of her today with love.
Today I'm posting more images of the valentine I sent through last week for the swap I participated in. The person's profile indicated that they liked vintage pin-ups. It also said that she liked buntings. So I made a card set with bunting to hang.
|The full image of the card|
|The bunting is shown in this shot :) The images of the girls are so cute. The pocket was made with a paper lunch bag! The bag folds up from the bottom to create front pocket. The edged top also opened up as that is the actual top of the lunch bag. I got the tutorial here, a link was posted by April Cole on her blog. Great timing!|
|I put the card in the front pocket and the back pocket held the folded bunting.|
Later I'll be searching swap-bot for another swap to join! I encourage anyone interested to try it out!
Speaking of swaps, I've received some terrific from April too!
We did a nice swap which she posted about too! Below are the wonderful ATCs she sent.
April was so sweet to have sent TWO cards for the one I sent to her! Lucky me! :)
My sweetheart had a gorgeous bouquet delivered, and now I have fantastic subject matter to draw and paint. Lucky again :)
I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine's day.
If you can't be with the one you love, love the one your with.
