HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!!

Happy Pink Saturday all of you! Today I'm sharing one my latest creations I have been working on, a Pink Pocket Valentine in shades of Pink with Paper filigree added from the middle to the outside edges. It is all backed and lined with cardstock, and edged in Paper Filigree. I didn't realize how difficult this would be to photograph. This sweet Valentine is a pocket Valentine perfect to put a Gift card, Hankie, Jewelry, Tea Bag or a  treasure in the back. I placed a piece of card stock in the pocket so you could get the idea. The Tea Cup full of Kittens are from the front of a Vintage reproduction set of Valentines I purchased years ago and never opened. I raised it off the paper by adding double sided foam tape. I have 4 of theses that I hope to finish and put on Etsy, they will all be different as I don't care for making anything exactly the same.

Don't forget to visit all the Pink Saturday participants hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to see lots of wonderful Pinks!

Happy Pink Saturday MariLou Sweetie...
Oh what a gorgeous share today. I love the heart and the filigree is so unique. I love the layers most of all. It gives it that depth that a Valentine should have.

Love the little kittens and how playful they do look. I love the teacup and the idea that you could add a tea bag for that special someone. You did an awesome job sweetie and how creative it is.

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday sweet friend. Thank you for taking me on my tour today with LuLus Lovlies, as always I had a wonderful time.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Hi Marilou, I'm here! You scared me there for a minute because I deleted a few blogs that I never read anymore and I thought, good grief, did I accidentally delete yours? NOPE, you are right there on my list! :) Life has just been so crazy and I don't know why, there is not that much going on! I'm so glad you stopped by and thank you for praying for my neighbors Granddaughter, I know how much it means to her. Have a wonderful week! xxoo Nan
