Free Vintage Image, Valetine Cards and Disney

Hi All!,
Boy you really are out there. I'd like to welcome the new followers and thank everyone for all the love you've left. It's really good to know that you like and hopefully use the images.

The last few days have been really crazy around here. The kids are all off on their Disney Adventure and we're been lucky enough to receive the assignment of dog sitting. Have you ever watched "Animal Hoaders" on the Animal Planet channel? That's what we're kind of feeling like. We definitely have a pack of animals hanging out here for the next 9 days! They're all so skiddish cos they're away from their homes that they bark at the slightest provocation! It's a good thing we live out in the country and have a huge fenced in back yard! Wish me luck!

Have you seen the DT's cards that they made from last week's image? If you haven't, you can visit them by clicking on their names. Donna's , Sherri's , and DeeDee's. If you haven't visited their blogs yet, please take a few moments and check them out! I'm so jealous of their skills! They do an awesome job.

Here's my rendition. I printed the image twice so that I could give him some dimension and then I manually cut them both out. I thought I did a much better job of cutting until I looked closely at the picture. You sure can tell where I missed cutting some of the white card stock! Kaiden will still be in Florida for Valentine's Day :( and I wanted to use some of the left over Mickey paper from his autograph book on his card. I used it to create a little envelope that I filled with candy hearts. I had the hardest time attaching the little balloon hearts to the card. They just didn't want to stay attached. So I finally added a foam spacer between his hands stuck in the wires and added some glue on top. They still weren't attached as well as I would have liked but they'll have to do. I added some red and gold ribbon for some bling, some polka dot hearts and called it done.

Of course, I can't make a card for Kaiden and not make one for Jordan! I didn't really want to use the Bell Boy for her's so I found another sweet little image to use. I followed the same recipe but used her left over Minnie paper from her autograph book instead of the Mickey paper.

I thought they turned out really cute. Maybe if I keep practicing I'll get better. lol

Now, I must digress for just a little bit and turn into the very proud Grandma... please forgive...

Jordan had her Dippity Do appointment today. She selected Cinderella, of course, and of course I have to share the results. Isn't she just the cutest Cinderella ever!

Here she is with Cinderella.

And with Belle. Notice Belle is checking out Jordan's autograph book. :) I absolutely love the look at Jordan's face! Can you say admiration?

And last but not least, here's Kaiden with his Chip and Dale hat. Isn't he a cutie!

Sorry but I just had to share. :)

Now last but not least, here's the image for Jordan's little girl. Make sure you click on her before you save her.

I hope you have a great week plumb full of smiles!
