Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day and Happy Pink Saturday! Today I'm sharing a little bit of "love" with some Tin Art. This is an altered tin that once held Altoids  and was so much fun to create. Created for a swap and the theme is "vintage valentine" so I went with red and gold for a change. I can think of a zillion ways to decorate theses tins and that is part of the fun. We are only limited by our imagination or lack of,  but once you get going there is no stopping, lol. Don't forget to visit Beverly and all the Valentine beauties over at  How Sweet the Sound  and Honey over at  2805 for Potpourri Friday. Have fun visiting everyone! Stop by The Tablescaper  for Seasonal Sundays for some great blogs as well!

Good Morning Marilou Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share this morning. I simply adore your tin. The combination of red and gold is so royal and I love the image that has made it into the perfect Valentine for any romantic at heart. Love it.

Thank you for sharing. To think I have been throwing those little tins away for such a long time. I will be asking the folks at work to save them for me as well. Many thanks for the tip sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi Marilou,

I'm just loving your tins and I'm so glad you are taking part in the swap. I can't wait for them all to come in and so I can send them out to you gals. I hope you'll stop by my blog and check out the images I made on my new software. I've also linked you in my post as you always have so many creative things going on at Heartful Creations.

Hugs, LisaKay

Marilou, We found the tins at CVS in the Valentine section. I heard they also had them at Krogers but we don't have that in San Diego. Good luck! ~Marti
