Make a Valentine

1920s Valentine

Today a gift.  If you copy this image and print it out, you can mount it on card stock.  Then carefully cut out both pieces.  Use a tiny brad to attach the arms and the iron to the girl's body. The arm on the right side goes behind her.  The arms should swing back and forth as if she is pressing something.  You could attach a piece of card stock to the back so she stands up.

It has been a frustrating day here. Our car developed some nasty ailments and had to stay over night at the dealer.  This cost us lots and lots of cash.  Then I tried to make chocolate truffles for my sweetie for Valentines day.  Not a success.  The little broken bits of chocolate taste good, but my imagined plate of cute little round truffles isn't going to happen.  Maybe I can melt them and make chocolate sauce.

So very sweet and nostalgic...I love vintage Valentine pieces...I find it hilarious that she is ironing! LOl :)

Hope things get back on an even keel with your car...Geesch! We have certainly "been there" this year too!

Chocolate sauce sound like a wonderul alternative...hmmm...:)

Having not managed to kick the ironing habit yet this is a very appropriate card. Charming. I will bookmark it for next year.
