Here goes: first is my card swap with Paintin' Patti. Some of you have seen the ones she made for everyone, and this is what they look like ~ I'm lovin' it, especially since I'm a gardener!
You can view the card I sent to her on her blog, at the link above. (I forgot to photo mine - sshhh!)
Now, for Erica's Valentine Candy Box Swap (Golden Egg Vintage blog) I was partnered with Linda from Texas. She has a blog, but hasn't used it in a year. We're now Facebook buddies! Here is the awesomeness that she sent me ~
Awesome vintage-style paper on the heart-shaped box, wrapped in tulle!! And a smaller box of chocolates which, by the way, didn't make it past the photo shoot - no surprise there!
An awesome foursome of crocheted hearts, a vintage hankie, a heart candle, a vintage Valentine card, two cute little bookmark magnets and a pretty floral notebook!
. . . a beautiful calendar made with a vintage card, some Valentine stickers, two gorgeous glitter heart tags, and a bunch of so-cute quilt hearts! I think I might want to make a banner with those! All throughout the box were sprinkled chocolate-scented rose petals!!
Now, what more could be asked of for Valentine's Day? (besides a new sports car, I mean)
I also made a tag and tucked it in ~
Here are most of the goodies I tucked inside: some Boston Baked Beans candy (cuz I'm from the Boston area!), a beautiful large chocolate heart made locally, a small pouch of red and pink tiny flocked bears (cuz Linda likes bears!), a bag of Valentine erasers which also includes bears, and some Crabtree & Evelyn Wisteria-scented soap and lotion. There was also a fabric country-style girl holding a heart that I got at a thrift store, but I forgot to include that in the photo.
