VALENTINES UPDATE: 22 DONE, 6 TO GO!

Greetings, dear reader!

Here are the next dozen or so of the valentines I've been creating for E's Dolly Dingle Valentines Day Swap...I've been having so much fun making each of them a bit different! However, they ALL have a signature something (okay, TWO somethings) that are common to each valentine. Can you find the signature item (s) in these 12 valentines?

 












I hope to finish them up today...I'll be back with more soon! 

Hugs,
Paula Clare

Such cute valentines! Looks like they all have either a cowboy or a cowgirl! Also I see the silver tinsel (chenille stick?) & each has at least one heart aside from the background heart shape. Lots of cute buttons too, but I didn't check to see if each has a button.
All in all, they're "cute as a button"!

Hey Paula,

A flower and three little hearts are all in common......right????

I talked to E for over 2 hours yesterday, and we had quite the conversation. She actually called me.......a big surprise. I fill you in with an email.

Love ya'

Daisies and tinsel are what I see! ♥

Paula Clare said...

Hi Ladies...
You're ALL right! However, the daisies and one other element are what I intentionally placed on each valentine...other guesses?

By the way, if any of you who comment did not make it into E's Dolly Dingle Valentine swap would like one of my valentines, please email me your snail addy and I'll be glad to get one in the mail to you!

Off to make more! Hugs!

Hi Paula, they are all adorable! everytime I see anything with a cowboy theme i think first of you!!
I wanted to thank you for stopping to encourage my sister! It means alot to me and Im sure to her as well! I feel so bad for them.

They are so darn cute. I LOVE THEM! Is it hats?

I enjoyed your New Year's Eve overnight. Stayed with you as long as I could keep my eyes open. I need to make my FIRST valentine with your wonderful gifts you shared. Thanks for the cowboys.

I think I see the TWO signature items. Is it hearts and flowers? Don't keep me guessing!!!

Paula Clare said...

Hi Gals! I really hoped my signature "items" would be more obvious! lol Those of you who guessed "Daisies" were right! That's ONE of them...(they and sunflowers are my favorite flowers). The second item is a snippet of ribbon on each Valentine. It's ridiculous, but I agonize over each piece...what color compliments or stands out? Should I go with a coordinating pattern or something "obnoxious" that will contrast?!

Anyway, I got the last 6 done, and so now I can get them in the mail..hooray!
