Shopping Our Stash #87

Happy Tuesday, friends!  We have a GREAT challenge at Shopping Our Stash this week.  This week we want to see Valentines/Love/Red/Hearts.  Your choice!  Easy peasy, right?

I chose Valentine, love and hearts!
 I started with this sweet image from Beatriz on etsy.  This is from the set My Love.  Isn't she cute?  It says: "To the one I love  I'm waiting for a sign, From you, my own dear Valentine"  How cute is that??
 My background paper is from Bearly Mine Designs.  I think the collection is Floral Fantasy.  This was from my "stash".  I bought it months ago and hadn't used even one paper.  The twine is also a stash item.  The pin and beads are from my daughter's stash of beads that lives in my sewing room!  The lace is new, I couldn't resist it at my local fabric shop.  That piece of khaki fabric is actually a small scrap of needlework fabric I had saved from a piece I had stitched.  The count is so large it's hard to stitch anything small on it but it's great here!
 The inside is plainer than usual but I didn't want to use more ink to print paper.  The sentiment is from a dollar find at Joanns.

Now that you have seen my card using a bunch of stash why don't you dig into your stash and make a fun Valentine for someone dear to you!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
