Vintage Bingo Valentines

I have always loved greeting cards, and literally have boxes with almost every card I have ever received. I love keeping them out on display, sometimes for weeks, just to enjoy them.

Last year for Valentine's Day I decided to make Valentine card hangers, so they could "hang around" for awhile. I found these red vintage bingo cards and then used vintage children's Valentine cards with a little mod-podge and glitter. It was my first time to try something like this and I had a lot of fun making them.

And now that I know what "Stickles" are...
it should be a little easier.

The thing I will do differently is to use matte
 mod-podge instead of gloss...
too shiny.

I love ribbon of every kind and color,
especially holiday ribbon,
to dress up any paper project.

A little red heart-shaped pin cushion
joins in.

My crafting quota has been really low,
but I enjoyed these so much,
I'm going to put some together this weekend.

Vintage buttons and Valentine ribbon embellish the hanger.

And thank you sweet Donna of Brynwood Needleworks,
who gave me this wonderful "Sweet Friends" award.
Donna and I came to know each other through my
 Give-away last fall. She has been a real blessing to know.

Hope you have a great weekend.
We're expecting a blizzard
... brrrr.
 I'm staying in to play!
