These were tucked in a box in the cabinet here in my den. I was looking for a place to put all the extra cords and mouse from the new computer. I spied a box and in that box were dozens of cut outs and these were among them. I had totally forgotten about the box and the cut outs!And these are just a few of the cut outs I found in the box. A long time ago I found (at an estate sale) a big plastic box full of images cut out of vintage greeting cards -- a big box! Someone had spent hours and hours carefully cutting out the pictures from the cards! It took me a long time to sort through them all and pick out the ones I wanted to keep. This is just a sample of the Valentine's I found. I have sandwich bags full of flowers, roses, Valentines, etc.It pays to go through the cupboards, boxes and shelves in my house! I need to do that more often!! I had totally forgotten about these cut outs!
After I saw Dede Warren's post of January 16th I was enchanted with the vintage Valentine's she is using in a Vintage Valentine's fat book! I even checked out all the links she posted to see what the others were doing for their fat books. I am so wanting to participate in a swap like that! That may even be a goal for me this year -- to participate in a swap like that. Got to figure out how to find one!
BTW! I figured out how to get to the scanner from the desktop and not the scanner itself! Told you I wasn't going to let this new computer and Windows Vista get me! No way!!
