Here are all of our Valentine's ATC's grouped together in colors...
I love the purples ones the best...
Stefanie's wonderful candies she collected to send to my heart....
Stefanie's Valentine ATC's...all vintage and perfect!
Stefanie's treasures wrapped with love in pink!
Anja's wonderful little album held all of her ATC's...now I had to go and get a label maker I was so inspired by her design!
Anja's Valentine ATC's look so lovely nested into my African violet plants...their colors match her cards...
Anja sent such sweet treasures along...an altered tin with sweet red rose petals inside.
An angel hanger that is perfect for my new Miche Bag!!
Birgit captured the spirit of Valentine's day with her stunning ATC's...
Birgit delighted the little man in my house with her thoughtful gift of Brause...a fizzy drink mix we used to love to dip our fingers into!
Birgit collected a treasure chest full of candies to send to my homesick heart...oh those teas are yummy! Marzipan hearts...I almost fainted they were so good!
No season delights me more than the season of LOVE in February...thank you my three dearest friends for wrapping me up in LOVE from the homeland...

I made this tri fold Valentine's card for my sweet husband Dennis at Church craft night. The hostess shared her button box and didn't I find the perfect ones for the sentiment?

I'M MAD....about this guy!!

I love the color combinations in Lorianna's wonderful Mad Hatter's Tea Party hat card. How creative and perfect for spring...And don't you know how mad I am about my handsome man who looks purrrrfect in his top hat in the Mad Hatters Hat Shop in Leavenworth.

Then I was inspired to design these four ATC's for my dear friends in Germany!
Blue and silver color themePurple and gold
Red and white..............Pink and creme

All the wonderful packages have arrived from Germany and I am having the most fun with all the beautiful Valentine ATC's and little treasure that were included in the envelopes. I can't wait to show you everything next post!!

Suzanne Saupe would like PEACE in the world for the new year...Linda Blackbird has a weak spot for diamonds...
The backs of Linda's ATC's are works of art in themselves...
I love her 'Back When I Was A Kid' ATC and the story she shared about her precious mother's life...please click the photo to enlarge and read it...
'Down the Garden Path' themed ATC's from Linda Blackbird and Kendall Fegley (left)
'As Seen On TV?'
Camille Sahm made this clever Give Blood ATC...a good idea if it doesn't hurt.
Lorraine Layne sent me a House full of perfect wishes! All I can add is let there be LOVE in every room!
