Vintage Valentine

After a nice winter break, it's back to work this week -- and I have been busy. Too busy even to stamp. But this morning I really felt the need to create something before going back to the grindstone.
When I saw the challenge at Theme Thursday was vintage valentines, I thought, good, I can finally use these digital valentine images I bought last fall that have been sitting right on top of my craft desk through the whole Christmas season. Now, all of a sudden, it appears they have vanished into thin air. I could not find them anywhere! Urghhhhh!!!


So here is my vintage tag I made instead. The background is made with alcohol inks. You can see the other submissions at Theme Thursday here: http://themethursday.wordpress.com.

Well, for not being able to use your original plan, your "in a pinch" is stunning! LOVE the background of alcohol inks. Would you share what colors you used to get that shade please?

Your tag is so lovely, your lady looks fab in her golden crown.
Boy, do I know your frustration. I can't tell you how many times I lose things while I'm working even.....guess it would help if I had less on my work table....but I NEED my stuff all around me LOL! I know your images will turn up when you're looking for something else, always works for me.

Stuff always walks off of my desk and shows up when I am looking for something else that is lost!
It's a pretty tag even without your Valentine images!
