My attempt at Valentine cards

Hi to all,
Well it's been a while since I have blogged... But everyone needs a break, and for some reason life always gets in the way as well??

This month was Valentines day so I made my version of Victorian style Valentine's for a few friends of mine... I had so much fun! I tried to make each one different and unique to the new owner.. I even scribed a original Valentine verse for the dear fairy girls and decorated the back.. Anyway I am glad to be back .. For now anyway??
I am trying to decide what my subject matter will be this 2009..

Enjoy the snap shots of the Valentines I made. Fronts & (some)backs :-) I even made the envelopes. You can kind of see the different colors & patterns of the paper as I laid the card ontop when I took the pictures..

Imbolc Blessing

"There's a grassy slope not far away Where thousands of Narcissus bloom,
And I catch my breath, as I watch them swayTossing their sweet perfume.
Gaily they nod their dear little heads And smilingly welcome me,
As they spring up fresh from their winter beds,Eager for company.
Their round white faces fair and clean Are purer than frost or snow,
And I thank the hands, tho' now unseen;
That planted them, long ago."

- Nora McFarlane, Hillside Narcissus
