Special Valentine

Sorry I've been off here so long.  I had a lot going on.  Hubby and I have both had some medical problems to deal with.  I've had a birthday and a hip replacement.  We joke about the fact that my birthday gift was a new hip.  I think it could have at least been gift wrapped.

I want to share with you a valentine that I made for my secret sister in a women's group that I belong to.  She's a very special lady who was blessed with a beautiful singing voice.  Though she has a lung problem that would curtail that melodic sound in most people she never stops singing.  It's definitely a God Thing.

I found a ceramic heart with pink roses in a thrift storeI cut two half hearts from an old sheet music and glued them to the middle of the heart.  Then I found a vintage style clip art of a woman singing while holding a sheet music.  I cut it out and glued it to the sheet music heart.  There is a hole on the back for hanging.

I needed a gift box to put it in so I went through my stash and found the perfect box.  I glued strips of burgundy lace onto the box lid, wrapped the heart in pink tissue, tucked it into the box and away it went to the recipients home.  A special gift for a special lady.
