Shabby Chic Valentines


Good Morning!  I am back today with some shabbalicious cards created using some digital images I purchased from Cottonfield Farm!  Lots of vintage valentines to check out.  And you can't beat the prices!  I paid 1.99 and got 8 images.  These images are from a set called "Cupids and Fairies 2".  I'm not sure if there is a way to resize them.  I just printed the whole sheet and trimmed.  Service was very fast.  She sent me the jpeg of the entire sheet (8.5 x 11), I saved them, and printed them.

And ...  I have to share about the roses.  Aren't they beautiful.  Last month I made my first purchase from Wild Orchids.  I don't usually order from over sea's but the prices are awesome compared to Prima (sorry Prima ) and the service was great.  I was surprised at how quickly they arrived.  If you can find a better price on them, please let me know. 


I kept these pretty simple, so there isn't a whole lot of explanation needed.  I will say the I just brushed acrylic paint over a white paper doily for card #1.  Hope this puts you in a shabby mood!
Have a blessed day!
hugs, Melisa
