Who Knew Jack & Sally made Great Valentines?

Happy Monday!
I hope your weekend was a good one. Mine was for sure, but it sure was cold and I'm not really one for the cold. I made good use of the fireplace this weekend though!

When I made my very first Jack & Sally Valentine HERE, I never would have thought they would be so popular in my Etsy shop! The lady who bought the very first one liked it so much, she asked me to make another one, then I got to thinking...maybe I should make more. So I did!

This is one of the cards I made. I really love the red, black and white color combo and I thought it really fit Jack and Sally to a T!
I printed the image I found in Google images on the old book page and then cut it out using my Nesties.
I'm loving the rain dots on these too.  It's fun to get out an older embellishment and use it on today's cards.
This one was the first to sell and then the next one followed right behind it.  I couldn't believe people were looking for these types of cards.  My youngest son, who loves Jack and Sally, told me I'd be surprised how many people collect these types of Jack and Sally things.  I guess he was right!
This is the second card also in red, black and white.  I love these background papers.  They are old, I found them in my scrap bin.
This image was also found in Google images.  I printed it on the book page and cut it out, glued it to the Kraft card stock and cut it out too.  Then I pierced holes all around the border.
They really are starting to grow on me.  Since they are so popular, now they've got me trying to figure out what to create next with the images.  Maybe I should ask my son!

Join me again tomorrow for a FREEBIE! I've tried my hand at Subway art and I'd like to share.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Pin It!
