Hearts and Lace

I'm linking this little post with My Romantic Home for "Show and Tell Friday".
My Valentine

I got this beautiful handmade card today in the mail from my sister.
She makes wonderful cards and they are getting better and better.
Yes, don't worry Sue, I've saved them all.
I love the colors of this one and the lace plus that scalloped edge.

We started doing scrapbooking together but I have let it go and sold all the supplies I had. Now, my sister on the other hand, has narrowed it down to just card making. She makes them for everyone. In fact her son is in the mortgage business in NYC and she makes his Christmas cards every year for his clients. That's 500 cards!!! She's already started on next years.
Well, happy Valentines Day to everyone and Thank You Sue for this special card!


  1. Sweet card. Your sister is very ambitious! My daughter is making cards too and one has to be very creative to make each one a bit different. Blessings, Pamela

  2. What a beauty Shirley! She is very talented and you are very blessed by her talent.
    The Ohio bloggers are meeting on Saturday the 19th here in Columbus to see Ree Drummond from The Pioneer Woman at a local Barnes & Noble for a booksigning, if you are interested in coming down. We'll probably have lunch together afterwards. Let me know if you want to come and I'll send more details.

  3. That card is so beautiful! I have a friend who makes cards. Such a talent and one of such patience. I'm amazed that your sis makes 500 cards! Her son better be good to her! lol Just found your lovely blog via My Romantic Home. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back!
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. So pretty, Shirley! Obviously talent runs in your family. I loved your Valentine's table too. The way you mixed plaids, stripes, and dots really made it all pop!

    Hope you have a nice weekend ...

  5. That is beautiful Shirley. I would love to try those. I probably will just stick to taking pictures though. Come by and link it up to my party! Would love to have you. Have a great weekend.

  6. What a beautiful card and a beautiful sister for making it as well as those for your nephew! I, too, got rid of all my scrap-booking didn't hold my interest for long. That's OK though, we're better at other things!..:)JP

  7. What a beautiful card! Your sister has the talent! Amazing to think of making 500 cards!!!
